    Ok maybe someone can answer this. What would cause Beautiful Widgets to all of a sudden become a battery hog??? My battery went down quicker than usual today and when I looked at the usage Beautiful Widgets had used 51% of the battery. WTF could have caused this???

    I had the exact same problem! My GPS would not shut off and it has consumed 45 percent battery power. Menu, settings, about phone and then battery use will allow you to see how your battery is being used.

    Fairly ridiculous...

    I realized my battery is dying really fast since yesterday.
    And I didnot install any apps but upgraded weather widget.

    This possibly can be the reason for the battery drainage.

    Yikes, hmmm I haven't notice any battery problems but I'll definitely notify the dev to make extra sure, and to see if he notice anything. What are you're checking intervals? Did you change them at-all?

    I'm still using the older Beautiful Widgets, before the change. I just looked and my usage is only 2% and that is with the weather to update every 15 minutes.

    To check your battery usage, go to settings, click on about phone, click on battery usage.

    My checking intervals are every hour. Funny part is I had GPS turned off. And I haven't done the most recent update yet either.

    I haven't spoken with him yet, as he hasn't gone online lol. But if you haven't already go ahead and send him and e-mail also just to be sure he gets the message!
