    It's possible the developer has chosen to remove the app (that's all it really is, is an app to add the item to the widgets list) or stop supporting it on newer versions of Android. You may be able to get it extracted to an APK to install on the S8, but it may not work on the newer API level of that device as that S4 is quite old and Android has changed a lot since it was last updated.

    You can use App Backup & Restore on the S4 to extract the widget as an .apk file, copy it to the S8, find it in a file manager (My Files should still be Samsung's file manager), tap it and it should install. Then go to Widgets, drag it to a homescreen and see if it works.
