    HTC Puts Widgets On Market | Android Phone Fans

    Anybody download yet? I'm using the Battery widget, which is exactly what I've been wanting, and I'm trying the Today in History widget which is much larger than what I'd want but interesting.

    Havent (and wont) try them. I like the battery widget I use and the other seem completely pointless.

    Fair enough, I do agree that most are useless (the battery is the only key one for me) but it's good to see these popping up. Hopefully this is just the start to them.

    They won't launch because they're widgets. Add them you your home screen.

    I like the battery one, but this day in history isn't working for me. It just stays blank and stuck on 'Updating...'.

    Wow, I'm glad HTC is working on pointless stuff like this when they need to be fixing our issues with the OTA update...

    I've tried all four of them and they work fine but I only kept the battery one. It seems like whenever you install/uninstall one of these, the Sense UI needs to restart itself. I thought it crashed my phone at first but I think it probably has something to do with the new widgets integrating into the HTC widget list.

    i got them to load, thanks. but the battery one is just like Batterylife from curvefish. that one is better because you can customize it.

    The only one that interested me was the battery widget. I downloaded it for my Eris and it works fine. Very practical.

    Battery widget is a lot better than having to *#*#4636#*#* every time you wanted to check your batter health.

    Tip calculator is always handy too.

    Like the battery widget, smaller than curvefish although I like that one a lot also.

    the battery one is the only one worth getting
    dice is just dumb
    this day in history is kinda neat, but i doubt i will use it, and i don't like the space it takes up
    tip calculator? you mean you haven't figured out how to do this in your head yet?

    I like the Battery Widget. The simple animations they've included make it pretty slick. It's a simple and clean design that works well. What more can you ask for?

    Installed htc battery. uninstalled BatteryLife.

    Both are pretty much the same and you can't go wrong with either one.
    I prefer htc just becase of the htc brand name.

    I like the battery widget, has a nice bubbling animation when charging. But I still prefer the curvefish battery widget better since you can customize it. and dont have to tap it to bring up info.

    While we're on the subject of battery info...

    I have a shortcut to SPare PArts on my home screen, and it has a link to the elusive battery info screen accessible only (as far as I can tell) through the nearly unuseable (for me, anyway) voice dialer.

    If I use SPare Parts to bring that up, then use the home button to exit, tapping the SPare PARts shortcut opens the battery info screen.

    For those who've never seen it, it gives battery scale, status, health, temp... and a few other things.

    The only one that seems worth having is the Battery one. But I'm not running Sense on my Eris right now anyway.

    It makes me wonder if this is part of a package that would be included in newer phones or maybe a preview of the updated Senseui with Android 2.X

    I didn't notice any animation with the battery widget, what do I have to do to make that happen?

    Plug it in to see bubbles while it's charging.
