    Beautiful Widgets had the clock, and Pure Calender is a calender that I like better. Hope that helps!

    Apparently Beautiful Widgets just got a C&D from HTC, download it now while you still can, and if you have it already, be sure to back it up!

    To back up use Astro (free app)

    • Open Astro
    • Press the menu button
    • Select tools
    • Select Application Manager/Backup
    • Check mark next to BW.
    • Press the "backup" button
    There's a thread already on this topic so lets keep this thread open for discussing the OP's original question.

    If you want to discuss the C&D of Beautiful Widgits here's the link.

    can you back up a widget? With EStrongs I'm only shown 'true' apps to backup.... this may make me switch to Astro...

    ^ installed Astro.... back up went smoothly.

    You're not able to connect to your PC's folders with Astro? Am i missing something? If not then I'll just hang on to Astro and still use EStrongs as my primary. (sorry I know a lil off topic)
