Wife and I each have Beautiful widgets on our Motorola Droids.
I have absolutely no issues with it. However, it is severely draining the battery.
I checked her battery usage today in the menu under about phone, and both Beautiful Widgets and GPS are absolutely draining her battery. She has not used maps or navigation.
We use the large clock/weather widget (Beautiful Home) that also displays the city. Geolocation is checked on both of our phones. Neither of them have the Use GPS over Network option selected. Her refresh rate is set to 1 hour, mine is set to 15 minutes. The only other differences I can see between hers and mine is the skin being used, I use Carbon Fiber and have mine set to be "Naked". Hers is set to Naked Alloy. Can't see how that would make a difference. In fact I previously used that skin with no issues. The other difference is that mine is set to use 24 hr clock.
Looking at her battery usage now it says the following:
Beautiful Widgets - 40%
Voice Calls: 9%
Phone Idle: 2%
Cell Standby: 2%
Android System: 2%
Live Wallpaper: 2%
When I check mine, GPS and Beautiful Widgets don't even appear on my battery usage.
I cannot figure out why Beautiful Widgets is killing her battery. I uninstalled it the other night when she mentioned it, and it did the same thing today.
She likes the look of the widget, but said if it persists, she's going to just uninstall it. I am completely at a loss, especially since the only difference in the ways ours are set up I cannot see having any effect on GPS (skin, 24 hr clock).
Sorry for the long post. Any one have any ideas?
