my bad madam
My apologies if this has been covered somewhere in the last 65+ pages of this thread. (I did make an effort to find another reference; really I did.)
I finally dl'ed Beautiful Widgets and began looking at the wealth of skins available. Trouble is that with a few exceptions, I cannot determine which skins are "transparent" and which are "opaque." Aesthetically, I prefer the former for my phone and it's a major PITA to download and try one skin after another to see if my background shows through the BW "home" or "smaller home."
This is further complicated by the fact that (I believe) I cannot tell which skin I currently have in place or easily (without using a file manager) delete or "re-file" skins I've downloaded and found wanting.
When the number of available skins is 10 or fewer, these are minor problems. When the number is 50+, well, you get the idea.
So, this is simply a plea for a more consumer friendly identification system for individual skins and features that allow a user to manage a stack of skins more easily.
P.S. Sorry for the ignorance on this point, but I understand the term "transparent." I initially believed that "naked" might well be a synonym, indicating a transparent skin. But I believe I've found that some skins that claim to be "naked" are "opaque."
P.P.S. None of the comments above should be taken to be a criticism of the BW app/widgets. It/they are great. Just hope to see the app move toward a more consumer-friendly state as it progresses.
I think overall everyone has done a good job at denoting the naked or transparent skins, but your post is a good reminder to try and do even better.
In a perfect world everyone would use the same wallpaper or just a black wallpaper, but that is not realistic as some use wallpapers that they feel look the best with the particular skin.
To get the beautiful widgets do I just download from the market?
yup, It's available on the Market
Is there any other place to get this from. My bank cards block oversea transactions.
I'm not sure AFAIK, I don't think so you might want to ask the Dev himself about it.
How do you get rid of some of the skins you do not want in your download?
Go the the skins directory on your card end delete them
How do you access card? I'm assuming the sd card!
Inside the app's downloaded skins list, I think you can long press a skin and choose delete from the popup.
Tried that...does not work
