    I was so pleasantly surprised to awake and see a Beautiful Widgets update in the Market! Got the Droid font now, which is nice.... and it seems that BW screams now! It's much faster loading that before.

    And yes... I slept very late :)

    I like the new look better than the old flip clock look. The flip was cool for a while but I'm actually glad that HTC decided to act like asses because the new one is SO much nicer.

    I know the botton launcher on your screen is Home ++ but I am a bit nervous to try it with all the complaints of sluggish-ness. I would like to know if anyone knows of a similar widget to have those type of shortcuts on the botton of the home screen.

    TIA

    Not bashing WWD (I was a fan after the HTC thing hit). But it runs slower, seemed to bog down my phone a bit. The skins were nice, but apparently he is making BW skinable soon. Also, this has everything I need. With the new android font, this thing looks complete now (just wish he would put the weather in the middle). And BTW..it does go so freaking fast with better animations than WWD.

    I know GDE has two shortcuts on the bottom, not sure if any other home replacements do.

    Install it and see for yourself. Uninstalling is very easy, so there's no excuse for you not to try it out since you're interested.

    Great!! big fan on the new look. Best widget on the market as far as I am concerned!!

    Just a couple of little things...this is not a complaint at all. I just thought if changes were still being made to the look it would be "cool" if the frost in the corners for cold/snowy days could come back. And bigger clouds on cloudy days...lol.

    WWD also has a major clock syncing problem somthing BW doesnt have. And add that the weather animation is far superior to WWD.

    Love the new look. But the widgets for Wifi, Vibrate, etc don't seem to like working with PandaHome. Not sure who would help with that...Panda or LevelUp...but I love the look and the animations.

    I did have WWD, but got tired of it always asking me for my location.

    I really liked BW over WWD, but went with WWD because it has a 1x2 widget with just the weather that I really like since I feel a second clock on the home screen is redundant. If he updates it to have a 1x2 or even a 1x3 widget, I'm going to switch over. I agree the animations are definitely better with BW.
