Integrate with a native Widget?

Anyone have experience on the difficulty of integrating a widget written in Swift with a Xojo iOS app? That is, can we overcome the lack of Xojo widgets by writing an add on natively?

By the same token, could we do the same with a native Apple Watch app?

I went down this path last year and either ended up with apps that wouldn’t launch at all or widgets that would not load.

Having followed this journey completely in Swift and SwiftUI as well, it pretty much “just works” when using Xcode without a lot of hassle. Much as I hate suggesting it, you should probably just learn Swift and reorient your brain for SwiftUI if you want iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and widgets.
