    I just installed GetJar from the market and got it through the browser on my phone. Worked just fine, also installed the addon package from the market. Awesome find btw, thanks for the heads up.

    Got it without a hitch as well. A few unrecognized phone messages, might have something to do with me changing the Android Version value from 2.3.5 to IceCreamSandwich, but it installed without any issue.

    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.

    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.

    I haven't used beautiful widjets yet, but screebl did it to me and kept popping up with a message that this app is draining your battery so I uninstalled screebl.

    I uninstalled Screeble. (But I was running it with no problems (except for battery saying it was using all of the power :) ) But the phone kept draining. I am checking this morning without screebl but in 2 hrs I am already down 13% with the extended battery. I am usually still in the 90s after 3 hrs with the extended battery so I think something is wrong. What really bothers me though is it does not show up as using any battery.

    On my OG Droid I once tried fancy widgets and I used to have the same problem until I installed it.
