    When Weather Widget Donate has the option to use a smaller clock + weather widget for the home screen in the same way that Beautiful Widgets does, I will consider using it.

    if you have Beautiful Widgets already why are you even looking at other clock/weather apps?

    Beautiful widgets was the best so far but donate isnt bad either

    It received a cease & desist from HTC... they made the developer take it off the market.

    HTC claimed that Beautiful Widgets was infringing on intellectual property. So they first made the developer change the look entirely.
    It was changed within a day and then HTC stepped back in and said they were having Beautiful Widgets taken off the Market to do an evaluation of it.

    No one really knows what's going on. My guess is Beautiful is gone for good.

    Only if you have it already installed.... it'll show up in your download list. If you do a search you won't find Beautiful Widgets :(

    I tried both and I didn't like Beautiful Widgets after the developer had to reskin it.. personally. If it were more customizable, I probably wouldn't have moved over to Weather Widgets - Donate.

    This one not only looks great, but it works great too.

    And they had it taken off the market right before Christmas while they were on vacation and haven't gotten around to evaluating it yet. Personally, I think the developer could recover damages from HTC for this lose of income.

    I doubt it is gone for good. HTC is on very thin ice here. They can't force all weather/clock apps off the market. Once they've looked at his code and see that he wrote it from the ground up himself, they will probably back off. If they don't I hope the developer will get a good attorney and go after them. I hope he won't let HTC just bully him.
