1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Yeah it will still work, just means he will not be able to sell it anylonger. And possibly will not be able to provide support for it.

    Lame move. HTC isnt losing any money because of those widgets. People are still going to buy HTC Android Phones these widgets do not affect that. So whats next, remove all the skins that mock the Sense UI??

    Why is he telling me to back up my app? Is that just in case I lose everything and can't re-download? HTC/Google aren't going to somehow remotely delete the app, are they?

    No remote deletion. This isn't the Kindle, after all. Yes, it's just to make sure you have it to reinstall should you have to reload your device.

    Damn nice of him to say something, too.

    better get it up on a torrent site just in case.

    HTC sucks. This dev was one of the best i've seen, such great updates, etc. All he needs to do is tweak the graphics ~20% and they can't do anything about it.

    I'm sure plenty of graphic designers and GUI designers would help create new images. Check out some great designers like infinisedesign, Jonas Rask, Louie Mantia, Rick Patrick, Susumu or basically anyone over at macthemes.net, we could get an even nicer looking widget in no time!

    If you want "Beautiful Widgets" app, get it NOW!

    FYI, Beautiful Widgets is getting shut down by HTC and will no longer be on the Market. If you have been on the fence about this program, now is the time.

    I would guess that all the other "HTC style Flip Clock" type apps will also get a legal letter from HTC if they haven't already.

    Wow. Why are they shutting it down?

    It really is pretty cool, I picked it up a few days ago.

    Edit: I get it, copyright stuff. That stinks.

    Ummm... hate to tell you this, but Android DOES have a kill switch... not saying they are going to use it in this case... but it IS in fact there.

    I used ASTRO to do it. I downloaded it just to backup Beautiful Widgets, but it actually looks like a pretty nifty app anyway.

    So the company that has spent the past two years duplicating iPhone interface design is shutting down a dev who is duplicating HTC design.

    I'll be downloading Screen Crack onto Eris demo units every time I visit VzW stores.
