    I think many people expected 2.1 to come with a better clock when you have it docked. However it's basically the same.

    The APK that I've been using for months is the Nexus One dock and it looks WAY better.

    Here is a link to get it and what it looks like.

    I re-downloaded it from there just to make sure it's the same and it is.

    I also downloaded a caller id feature that says what city a call is coming from.

    I highly recommend getting the HTC keyboard - it rocks.

    Does anyone's icons disappear using this clock when you remove the phone from the dock?

    EDIT: a couple of reboots fixed the problem. Thanks very much for posting. This one is much better. However, I had a follow up concern...

    The brightest part of the phone, in dim mode, is still the touch buttons. I was hoping this would have been fixed in 2.1. Has anyone conquered this little detail, without a custom ROM?

    How do you get it to go into the green colored mode? The night mode is still to bright for me.

    It seems to be automatic at some point. I go to sleep in the "night mode" and wake up, it's in the green, screensaver (clock moves around) mode. The brightness is all coming from the softkeys, not the clock.

    Also, before it goes into the green clock mode, the wallpaper would effect the brightness.

    There is a dimmer button up towards the top right of the screen, and if you long press on it, it will go directly into to sleep neon green mode.

    Are we able to uninstall this if we want to go back to the stock droid clock?

    I installed this and had to uninstall it.
    1 if i touched the time in beautiful widgets it brought me to my original alarm clock settings. then when i clicked back it would go into the new alarm clock settings. so i had two alarms fighting eachother to go off
    2 there was no way to delete the original droid clock from all my apps. i refuse to have two programs on my phone that do the exact same thing just look different
    3 i thought there would be some kind of options for this thing. like the damn leds that are constantly on in dock mode.

    If someone knows how to turn off the leds and remove the old clock without rooting i would redownload this in a heartbeat. until then, the clock ive got is good for what i need it for.

    Latest update to beautiful widgets lets you set program to launch when you tap the clock.
