    I have a few empty spots on my home screens. I need some widgets (already have beautiful widgets) to fill them up. What are your favorite widgets?

    "mine sweeper widget demo" is kinda fun. it's a little game that's a widget so you don't actually have to load a game. there's a paid version with different sizes but i think the demo one works just fine.

    As many times as I have seen this, it's my turn to dish I guess lol :

    1) Beautiful Widgets
    2) Power Monitor (stock)
    3) News (stock)
    4) DroidLive
    5) YouTube (stock, duh)

    I still think most of the stock widgets have the least battery drain on my droid, until I hear else, beautiful widgets also never shows up on my battery consumption, so ++

    Is there a widget that will give me a 4-5 day forecast on the desktop?

    I run two on my homescreen, framing beautiful widgets. If I knew how to take a screenshot, I'd post it.

    The Weather Channel (Wide) widget gives current as well as that day plus 2 days ahead. Beautiful Widgets, give you that day and 3 days ahead, but you have to press the widget to get that.

    Weather Bug Elite has a widget for that purpose.
