If you want to track your progress towards certain objectives, like hatching Eggs or earning Buddy Candy, you can add a helpful widget to your device’s home screen. These widgets will allow you to see your progress towards these objectives at a glance. Additionally, tapping them will bring you to the relevant screen in Pokémon GO.
Note that these widgets work best when you have Adventure Sync enabled.
