I don't think AppBrain gives out paid apps for free as a promotion like GetJar/Amazon does.

I had never heard of Getjar before either, so I searched for it. On the device it is m.getjar.com - I already had purchased Beautiful Widgets a couple of years ago so didn't need it. But, the app is installed. I tried d/l a game and it said failed, so I tried again and this time it worked. It was a Battleship game. Then I went to download a Solitaire game and it redirected me to the regular Market. So, apparently they have a few freebies but most/many of their Market is redirects from their site to the Android market.
Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

I installed beautiful widgets and added the clock/weather widget and I ran through my extended battery very quickly. The phone was hot every time I took it out the holster. I thought it might be Screeble so I uninstalled that, but the battery kept draining. I still have it installed and am watching it today after a reboot but I think I already used 30% more power than I usually use.
anyone else seeing this?
Btw, I also have the widget on my lock screen with Widget Locker.
On my OG Droid I once tried fancy widgets and I used to have the same problem until I installed it.
