    Weather Widget Donate is very nice... gives you quite a few widgets you can choose from, including the "flip clock"

    I'm using "Digital Clock Widget" on my Home screen. It just displays the time and the date in whatever format and color you want in a 1x2 space. It's pretty basic, but that's why I like it ;)

    I d/l'd this one and am using the date and I downloaded a retro one that actually flips like a real flip clock

    They match so it looks pretty good....

    Ceral,

    I use beautiful widgets (the pay version). It's rockin. The weather actually is chaging with me for where I am at. Since i'm travelling for the holiday it's keeping up with out me changing my setting. Very cool indeed. Also the developer updated this app recently. Gave the user more functionality. I find it useful and generally pretty awesome.

    Beautiful Widgets looks pretty darn nice....I think I will try them both (weather widget donate/beautiful widgets)

    Both look great....luckily there is the 24 hour return policy. Thanks for the great suggestions

    Hmmm. Clock widgets. To each their own, I guess. Clock in the status bar, larger font clock on the lock screen. So many clocks, so little time.

    just purchased the beautiful widgets set miami referred to. .99e/roughly $1.50, so ill skip a 20oz coke come monday and call it a wash. first impression is that it is very much worth it. i deleted another weather widget i was using, and this clock/weather widget goes great with my clean and simple layout i prefer on my phones.

    the only thing i wish it would include is the long format date (day, month date, year) on the very bottom of the widget. im going to shoot an email to the developers now and see what they have to say.

    all in all, good looking widget. impressed.

    just woke up to see that the developer had immediately responded to my email to remind me that the date is already included in the widget. sure enough, i looked, and there it was. i dont know how i could have missed it. :blush:

    Does the clock always have the correct time with Beautiful Widgets? I currently use Weather Widgets Donate which has a nice flip clock in it and lots of skins to choose from. My complaint with them is the time is always off, and you have to manually set what times the day and night weather icon should show day or night.

    My time is never off with it. I dont mind the manual setting of day night as certain parts of the country get light and dark earlier or later at times, so nice and easy to adjust, not like your doing it on a daily or even weekly basis.

    Hey Cereal I just noticed the two 'tabs" on the bottom left and right of the screen that I'm assuming switch to the other panels without having to "flick" the screen... is that part of Beautiful widgets or a simple setting I'm overlooking?

    Thats PandaHome and it's free...give it a try. It's very smooth no lag...

    those tabs will bring out a sliding vertical tray onto your homescreen. so you can put more widgets/apps on it
