    Bionic, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Beautiful Widgets .............. oh my.

    I just received an update for Beautiful widgets on my Bionic. After updating, my BW clock and weather widgets are gone from my home screen. That's okay, I've had to reinstall before ............ but uh ohh, that was on Gingerbread. I'm having one helluva time navigating to the proper widget page(s) in ICS in order to add a clock that I like, along with weather that reports temp & location. Anyone have thoughts or instruction on how to complete this task?

    Thanks in advance............

    I had to uninstall Beautiful Widgets and reinstall in order to get it to work after the last update.

    My update went through smoothly. After every update previously, I've always had to "re-add" the widget to the home screen. In order to add the widget, just go to the app drawer and swipe from right to left, all the widgets are in there. Also, after the install of the update, you might wanna reboot the phone so all the widgets show up correctly.
    Thanks,
    Josh

    You don't even have to swipe to get to the widgets, just tap the word "WIDGETS" when in the App Drawer.

    After above, add the default widget to your home screen. Go back to the app drawer, open the BW app and there are directions for customizing your clock and weather icons/set up
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    And in the shortcuts part of the settings you can set it so when you touch the minutes you can go directly to settings (instead of going to BW in the app drawer).

    BW updated very smoothly for me and the config was pretty straightforward. Just have to look through the menus and read the options.
    I really like BW 5 on both my Bionic and my N7

    I on the other hand was grateful for a Titanium Backup so that I could put the previous build of BW back on. The new version is neither beautiful nor functional.
    Life is too short to settle for mediocrity.

    I can't get BW to function now. I've uninstalled, rebooted, a number of times, but I can't get the menu to show. I swipe and swipe and no menu. Obviously I'm doing something wrong Any hints?

    Tap the weather icon on the widget and then tap the top where it has your location. The sidebar will appear and then you can go into whichever options you choose.
