    does any one know if you have multiple of the same widgets in different launcher apps will it drain your battery / slow down your phone more? like if i have the beautiful widget on my stock launcher and i also have the same widget on my launcher pro home screen would it cause the phone to use more battery life?

    Yes, it is recommended by just about every alternative launcher developer to remove all icons and widgets from the regular home screen prior to setting up their alternative launcher.

    Technically, I *think* that would constitute as running duplicate versions of the same program, although that is not entirely accurate as the widget is not necessarily a live version of the program - but still, having them in more than one place is just asking for trouble.
