I find the widget touch areas too small when trying to go to the app directly rather than any of the parcels listed.
When I hit the title bar most of the time the widget goes into edit mode and gets moved about knocking any other icons all over the place. Then I remember you have to hit the tiny logo in the left corner and once I get accurate enough the app is launched.
I have no issues with other widgets I use e.g. Play Music. This is on a Pixel 3.
