    Hello all,

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Just need some opinions, I have both of these and I can't decide which to use. WW donate is skinable and has the link for an additional weather app (i use weatherbug). BW has cool weather animation and looks a little slicker.

    Any thoughts?

    TIA

    p.s. I LOVE MY DROID!!!!!

    I have them both too. Skinable is nice, but Weather Widgets time was never correct for me. Beautiful Widgets has been working without any problems, and I like it's small version taking up less real estate on the screen.

    Had them both also. Beautiful Widgets gets my vote and the dev works hard to keep it moving.

    I originally bought weather widget donate, I like it's placement better but it does often just forget settings.

    Beautiful doesn't do this and I feel like it has nicer animations, although I'm really hoping soon that one of them updates so the widget actually flips when time changes.

    Beautiful Widgets said they were working hard on adding a Skin update. As hard as he works on this app/widget I am sure it won't be long.

    Thanks guys, you helped me make my decision! I hope the ability to skin Beautiful Widgets comes soon. (I need a clear clock background):)

    Thanks again for all of your quick responses!

    BEST FORUM ON EARTH!

    Does anybody know what happened to 'Beautiful Widgets'? When I run a search for 'Beautiful Widgets' in the marketplace, the below come up...

    - Beautiful Pictures (Widget)
    - Pure Grid calendar widget
    - Christmas Tree Widget
    - BatteryLife

    I'm really hoping to find BW so I can try it out.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Last I heard was that HTC had filed against the App dev. for copyright infringement. The Dev. did change it though and it should be up now.

    I prefer weather widgets donate, quite happy with size and placement. How do you link to another weather app on it?

    +1 Beautiful Widgets


    I paid for WW Donate first because I liked how the weather looked on the widget. I then paid for Beautiful Widget's because of the sweet animations. I was dissapointed at first because I hated the flipclock (non-original, schitcky) but I stuck it out bc I loved the animated weather so much.

    Well, the lawsuit thing or whatever was the best for me bc it forced them to change the look of the clock which I immediately LOVED. It fit the look of the phone, looks cool, and was original. BAM.

    ..as far as I'm concerned, anything else they add to Beautifull Widgets is just cake. :D :icon_ banana:
