    Hi there

    Considering buying Beautiful Widgets, just for the clock

    (the small clock here on the right:) [​IMG]

    But I don't want to buy it, if you can't use the clock without the weather-part.

    Beautiful Widgets has been downloaded so many times, one of you must have it and be able to answer my question :eek:

    Alternatively, is there another clock only widget, that uses the same font?

    Thanks in advance for your help :D

    There is a weather skin and a settings option that allows you to hide the weather portion (so two ways to do it). What I want is to be able to hide everything but the time, or at least change the font since I think it's gross. Hope that helps. Totally worth it too. The other app WeatherWidget is basically a rip off and he even stole some of the skins from Beautiful Widget to compete.

    I just tried hiding the weather icon. It removes the little sun/moon/cloud picture but still leaves the temperature readings there. The date and location are still there too. Font color for all text except the clock is user-selectable, so maybe you could change it to the same color as your wallpaper.

    After buying and using 'Beautiful Widget' for about 6 months I uninstalled it, primarily because both weather forecast options (AccuWeather and Google) are inaccurate and unreliable in my area.

    This makes 'Beautiful Widget' pretty much useless.

    For clocks I enjoy "Animated Analog Clock", "Clock Droid Pro", and "Tajm" better then what Beautiful Widgets has to offer.

    For Weather I have set a quick launch from my "LauncherPro Plus" dock for the "Weather Underground Mobile" page for my area, I also use "Weather Bug Elite".

    here are some screenshots:

    My question woiuld be: Does the weather still run in the background (eating up memory/battery) if it is "disabled"? Or is it actually disabled and does not run at all. I'd like to run a clock widget ONLY from BW and use another Weather app, but I do not want two weather apps running simultaneously.

    Where exactly is the settings option to turn the weather off?
