    I couldn't find anything about this or remember reading it, but I just downloaded beautiful widgets. Wow, I got more than I thought I would, but my inquiry is directed specifically towards the home (clock and weather widgets).

    There's a bunch of different skins that you can download and use. What I'm looking for is where they (specifically the image files) are kept. I was looking in the sdcard as well as what I think is the only place the widget resides.

    Here is a neat tip. Create a file called .nomedia and copy it to your /sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/skins directory to stop those pictures from showing up in the Gallery.

    Let me get this straight. I have folders in the Gallery called GNOME, iColor and Plain. If I put a file called .nomedia in each of the files they won't show up in Gallery? Will they still work for the apps that installed them?

    Pressing on the Weather brings up the 5-Day Forecast. Pressing on the Menu button brings up the Clock and Weather skins option. Both of those give you an option to download skins.
