    I agree that the skinning is cool with WWD, but ironically I couldn't find a skin I liked as well as the standard BW look (I use the smaller home version). I also thought the weather animations were inferior to BW, but as usual that is just my opinion.

    The thing I didn't like most of all was that WWD always showed up in my "Running Applications", but BW never has. To me that shows me that BW is coded "sleaker" than WWD. Total game changer for me.

    It was nice seeing the "Update Available" for BW, although it was all screwy went I went to my home screen. Power off and on took care of it. Last time I removed the widget and put it back to set it right.

    Hi Everyone I purchaed this app and it is very nice but since I installed it I noticed that the GPS/Satelite Icon remains on at the top of the screen.

    Is this normal because I am affraid it will drain the battery quickly. How can I turn it off the GPS?

    I am not running any programs that use it.

    It is probably doing that to get your geoloc for the weather data. Go outside for a few minutes so it will get a signal and update correctly. A reboot of the phone cannot hurt either.

    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.
