Not sure if this already posted but there are 2 new HTC widgets,
they are Profile and Ringtone.
cool. nice to see them hard at work.
What are they for?
Id rather them work on getting Sense to play nice with 2.2 so we can get that sooner vs. later.
2.2 > HTC Widgets.
I saw them as well this morning, but haven't gotten a chance to test them out because I'm at work. I'll check up on this thread to see what other impressions are.
where are you seeing these?
yeah for real SLACKIN!!
im still waiting for the news widget.
Hit the + sign ( home screen).......'Get more HTC Widgets'......menu button.....'update'....it should appear after that
So i got a minute to try to test these out. I've already installed them when I first saw them.. but when I try to add them.. they are nowhere to be found. Possible incomplete widgets released? Anyone else have luck using em?
They are in the widgets section under settings
Profiles and Ringtones widgets are found under Add Widget - Settings
(edit: caeb beat me to it.)
They are just 1x1 toggles. The profile widget allows you to change between normal, vibrate, and silent mode. The ringtone widget brings up HTC's ringtone list to change your ringtone.
Awesome, I see it now. I think I'll still stick to Volume Toggle for now as far as volume profiles go. I just like the fact that I can change the volume on it without having to actually go into the widget... also because you have the option to use it as an app and have full control of messing with individual volumes and saving those profiles.
Ringtone is kind of nice, but Dazzle (Free) does this already, even all the stuff in the Power Contron widget.. I love Dazzle
Yea, both widgets are nice.. very basic ones that seem like they should have come out day one with the phones. I have already since then downloaded free alternatives out there that do more than these and will be sticking to what I'm already using. I'll probably just keep these HTC widgets on my phone in case, but not loaded on any of my screens for the time being.
All I have under "Get more HTC widgets is:
Today in History
Am I in the wrong place?
That's all I needed to hear to know that these new widgets aren't worth downloading for me.
Hit menu after that and select update
Ditto for me. I don't see the new ones...
press "menu" then "update"
Me either. I updated my list and it said that my Widget list was up to date...
after hitting menu update both appeared...thanks.
Hmmm, had the update automatically option checked and still had to manually add them to show up. Thanks for the heads up even if I will not use either one.
