Default "Big Clock" on Homescreen?

Hello! Recently upgraded my wife to an LG Optimus S and she is really liking it.

However, she saw the "big digital clock" on the front of the box the device came in and she is wondering how she can dock that to her screen.

I have tried looking at the Widgets and have had no luck, only able to download an old-school analog clock to it.

Is there something I'm missing, or are there any apps that can duplicate that look?

She is looking for something along the lines of the HTC Sense UI clock.

If all you are interested in is an always-on clock display I recommend Night Clock. Another possibility is Kaloer Clock which has a few more features beyond simple clock and alarm.

Search the market for FlipClock. There is about fifty different ones but each is a different dl.

I use Animated Weather (free version) and it looks very similar to the HTC clocks.

I believe you can get that specific clock by installing the Fashion ID pack. You can always go back and uninstall that ID but keep the clock widget afterwards.

I'm sure beautiful widgets is the best, but if you are simply looking for a clock/weather widget for free then "Fancy Widget" is the best that I have found so far.

Cool Fancy Widget

Fancy Widget is the BEST I've used. It is nice and simple, yet gives you options to customize.

It is just how it came. I didn't download any additional skins. I set the clock background to clear and I set the clock "style" to "new digital" I believe. I basically just tinkered with the settings until I found something I liked.

I can tell you exactly what to do to get the Droid flipclock. I got my optimus s in Feb and was absolutely determmined to get that clock. You need to buy the "weather and toggle" widget on the android market. Once you do that you'll need the skin to make it look like the Droid clock. The settings in the weather and toggle widget has a skin downloader and you download the "h7c" skin and viola
