    Can anyone tell me where I can find the install file for this app on my phone? I'd like to back it up so I can use it again, since HTC decided to be dicks and send them a C&D and make them remove it from the marketplace.

    I've already used Astro File Manager to search all directories for the file but can't find it or any widget for that matter. Do widgets save in a different location?

    no prob.

    i don't think this is the end of Beautiful Widgets. the may have got a 'letter', but a few tweaks and they are in the clear... hell of a marketing ploy imo! :D

    And as I stated in the other thread...

    For those of you that have the Beautiful Widgets installed,
    you would also want to backup this folder --> \sdcard\data\beautifulwidgets
    That is where the animations are installed.

    Without backing up that folder, should you need to reinstall someday, the widgets wouldn't work without those files as well.

    How do you back up that folder? Using Astro, when I go into tools ==> backup, I only get the option to back up full "Applications".

    Thanks.

    Both the apps backup (from ASTRO) and the animated files already exist on your sdcard. But what you need to do now is to backup your sdcard should anything happen to it. Here's a link to POST #18 in the thread titled "SDCard Erased - A reminder to backup".

    Hope that helps. :)

    Would they be able to remove the application from those - like me - that have already purchased the app? I just thought that there will be no more updates on the widgets (which may be a problem when 2.1 comes out).

    Ah, NOW I know what you mean. I was wondering why you were saying to back up a folder from the SD card to the SD card itself..haha..I need coffee. :D

    With Astro backup you can choose Apps or Data ...

    Data backups data and system settings
