    Plus BW doesn't force you to downland and install a specific File Manager like WW does just so you can install their skins.. FAIL!

    BW skins work standalone and also gives you previews of the skins so you know what you are downloading... PASS!!

    Great, thank you all. I've only seen screen shots so I couldn't really tell what the big differance was, but I think I'm going with BW now.

    Don't forget - if you totally hate an app and uninstall in the first 24 hours you will not be charged, but if you go with BW I think you will love it. :)

    WWD works just fine and looks great for me, had issues early on with clock not updating and having to re enter location quite a bit, but that all went away several updates ago for me.

    I've bought both. In my opinion WWD was slow to respond, and had quite a few glitches with very few updates. BW is updated all the time, with NEW features being added. WWD hasn't had a new feature in quite a long time. BW also has other widgets for toggling GPS, Vibrate, Silent, and others. It works quite well, and now with skinning is Beautiful! I use the naked Skin..and it no longer looks like a Widget, but looks like it is incorperated into the Android OS.

    I ended up buying BW, and I love it, my weather always seems to be off by a bit though, adn it hasn't changed temp all day?

    Thanks, that is exactly why I sent BW the Droid Clock font to use and then made Naked Droid. I wanted a widget that looked like it was part of the system and matched the other clocks from the lockscreen and the new 2.1 DeskClock.

    What time frame did you set the refresh to? It is adjustable from 15 mins and later.

    However, the weather server (Google) forBW does hang up sometimes like all of those type of weather servers seem to do on occassion. It is not the app and you just have to wait for the weather server to get back online properly. I remember right after the Droid was released we lost the Accuweather server connection for about a week until they got it "fixed". That is the one used for the Multimedia "Dock Clock"
