    Sense UI isn't full screen weather either. It's pretty much identical to Beautiful Widgets. When you click the widget Beautiful Widgets goes to full screen animated weather though.

    I don't get the whole weather thing. I have the widget and it's nice, but seriously, just look out the window. It basically has the current conditions on the screen before you click it. I like to see hourly and 5 day forecasts for planning purposes though.

    Everyone is in love with weather widgets but basically the widgets themselves offer little more than beauty. The helpful info comes from the actual programs in the form of forecasts. Who doesn't know what the weather outside is? LOL

    I'm pretty sure the full screen animated weather you are talking about is on the HTC HD2 (Leo). I don't think the Eris or any android sense phone does that.

    I thought when you slide to the screen that it's on (one of the 7 SenseUI screens) it animates... I don't recall having to click on it.

    Haha you just wrote an essay how much you don't think its necessary, but you have it.

    I know LOL.

    Can you find a pic or video of Hero or SenseUI doing this full screen animation? I don't believe I have seen it.

    I feel very lonely in this regard these days, but I for one am GLAD that the Droid has the stock UI. I don't see Sense really bringing anything to the table except lag. There are plenty of widgets that can weather or a "flip clock" I understand why HTC has to shove this on WinMo phones... but it seems so pointless on Android. So what exactly is it that makes people want Sense so much?

    Bad video quality on a slow phone too, but you can see when you have the full screen widget it animates when you slide to it.

    I really like the text widget where he is flipping through them... hope something like that comes out soon. HTC has really done a great job.
