    I have the original Beautiful Widgets before the cease and desist. I did not repurchase BW because I'm not so thrilled about the clock font. Will I be able to use skins or do I have to use the new versoin of BW?
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    BTW, when you do a "flip clock" you should use a totally transparent "dots" file as the ":" look funny on a flipclock. Kind of ironic because I forgot the dots on my first naked version :-)

    err whoops looks like I forgot too delete the flip clock backgrounds. It was just meant to be text with a 2.1 like background kind like the stock news widget . I'll try fixing it up. I appreciate it!

    You will have to download the update when it is released. IF you already purchased BW it is a free update. With the skin version you will still be able to have a flipclock that looks anyway you want to create(or use a shared skin) as shown from some of the examples here.

    That's not hard at all. Here is a tip for you, you can get into the internal files/content of any apk file with a Rar type app (WinRAR) or even easier rename it from an apk to a zip file in windows and it will open up just like a zip file. You can then go inside and extract the image files you want to replicate or use as templates. Typically they are located in the "res" directory. Warning, while it might be OK to do this with the Android OS files since they are open source, doing this with a 3rd party app could constitute "theft" or at best, plagerisum, especially if used for commerical gain.

And post a screen shot or something lol. I didn't include any smaller-home-back files cause it didn't have it in the skin pack, so I didn't know lol. here's the zip file. hope it looks ok can't really tell without the beta. Oh I took the numbers from your naked skin since I had no idea where else to get them, hope you don't mind.
    I figured out what happened with your skin file.

    You forgot to rename the new files correctly. When you create the new image files they must be named exactly as they are in the "example" directory of the SkiDevKit.

    You used the names of the PSD files and named the new PNGs "back.png" instead of "background.png" etc.

    This should be more of what you had in mind, I like it!!!
