    I am enjoying a totally stable/happy Droid. V2.1 of the OS has had perfect uptime since the install.

    I really like the look of the HTC-inspired UI provided by Beautiful Widgets. Am I likely to have issues if I install it? Has it been completed stable for you??

    TIA

    I have never had an issue with BW. Plus all the skins and whatnot make it an amazing widget.

    I have had zero issues and zero FCs since installing it recently (a week or so) - so, for me anyway, the answer to your question is yes.

    Yeah Tama seems to be a great programmer. I've only bought 3 apps since I've had my Droid and BW is one of them.

    Only time I ever had any issues was right after an upgrade and deleting and re-adding the home screen widgets (per Tama's suggestion in the release notes) fixed it right up.

    Have used this app since I got my phone first week of December and it is the best app I have yet installed on my Droid.

    The new HelixLauncher2 update is pretty nice too. Although I can't vouch for how it works on stock 2.1, I'm using an overclocked CM release.

    I thought that the HELIX2 is for NEXUS 1 users only. Your talking about the donated version, right?
    The update is for non rooted as well?

    BW crashes when you play HomeRun Baseball 3d sometimes.

    Well I just tried it on my Droid and it works great. BUT my Droid is running CyanogenMod 5.0.6.1 so that may be why it works. You could always give it a try. Worst case, you will get force closes. Just click "Close" and hit your Home button asap to change back to Helix1 or normal Home. No harm done.
