    Yes the appearance is different but still looks good. Animations looks better also IMO. Make sure you have your old Beautiful Home backed up just in case you don't like the update. Pretty much looks like this

    Hmmm...don't like the font he's chosen for the clock. That might be an opportunity for him - add the ability to choose from a few different fonts for the time display.

    Me too :( It is keeping me from updating the one I have... I cant for the life of me figure out how to back up the old one with OI File Manager... Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Hopefully he will add the skinnable option!!!! That would blow my mind!

    Open Astro then menu-tools-Application Manager/Backup. Choose all to back up or just the ones you want

    Just a friendly reminder. Don't forget to actually back up your SD card contents on your computer after you backup the old app, in case you ever lose the data on the card for some reason.

    I have already backed up the old BW, but if I wanted to re-install it how would I do that from the SD card?

    Astro has an option to install apps that it has backed up. You may need to change the phone settings under Settings>Applications to allow installing from unknown sources.

    You can also use App Installer (free) from the marketplace to install apps from your SD card.

    Good advice above regarding backing up your SD card!

    You would go into Astro File Manager backup and select the app then install

    Backed up my old version yesterday, downloading the new one now. The only problem is that Weather Widget Donate has already grown on me thanks to the skinning ability. I don't know if I want to go back to the BW clock.

    The Problem I have with Weather Widget Donate is it isn't consistent. The clock stops working at times and the weather doesn't show in landscape mode.

    Sorry, I suggested him to change the font and he did. To be honest, it looks a lot better than what he had before. I think he will eventually add themes and what not.

    I downloaded the new app and I have to say I like it..It is similar font to the unlock screen and makes it feel like it belongs together.. Sure, I liked the flip but I certainly dont mind this one... Oh, and I also like the potential for themes eventually.
