    HTC hit the devolupers of Beautiful Widgets with a cease and desist order because of it being to close to HTC sense UI widgets.

    HTC Hits LevelUpStudio With C&D Over Beautiful Widgets | AndroidGuys


    They re-released Beautiful Widgets, with a different look, but it is a acquired taste. Some like it, others don't. Most want the original but its not coming back. If you have the original version, and you want to keep it, make sure you don't update it because the new version will overwrite it.

    Here is a excellent video of the old look and the new.

    If you're a VIP member of BBHybrids.net you can still pick up the original Beautiful Widgets. They have it in their download section.

    Don't think there are too many people here who would be a member, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

    I am not a VIP, but I can always IM randy and see if he can help. I have the .APK for 2.36 backed up. I have noticed recently that the new versioj's geo location was way off again yesterday. I will send a email to the developer today

    It seems to be coming and going from the market. Every few days, I get a notice that an update is available. I download and install it and then a day or so later it's no longer on the market.

    I'm trying to get used to the look of the new version but I keep going back to the original version that I have backed up.

    I like the new look well enough to stick with it...I did backup the old install before I got the new one, but I've gotten used to it.

    The dev is pretty on-the-ball, which is good to see.

    It's definately not in the market right now. I did hear back from the developer today. It seems that HTC still hasn't given thier approval for the new look yet. Stay tuned he is hoping to put it back up very very soon
