    Heyo! So I just upgraded from an HTC aria. The samsung's pretty slick. However--and I know this is OCD--I just don't like the alarm clock app, and havent found a good replacement in any of the popular 3rd party apps. I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    I have 2 (seemingly?) simple requirements.

    1. Has a clock widget. Ideally showing weather, alarm settings, etc, but if all it shows is the time that's cool. KEY: you can touch the clock widget to open the alarm clock.

    2. The alarm settings are spin-able. No entering a time, just spinning the digits up or down to set it.

    Anyone know of an app that has these criteria? Alternatively, is there any way to get the native HTC sense alarm clock on my galaxy s2? Looked around, but no dice so far.

    Since HTC is really good about being proprietary regarding their "beautiful" widgets and HTC Sense skin, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to find a legally downloadable HTC clock/widget on the Market. I liked their weather thing too, so I remember having looked all over the place for one, and all I could find were illegal versions modded by devs that were eventually removed from the Market/download links because HTC warned them that they'll take legal action.

    Is the stock clock app giving you a hard time? Maybe you can just put a shortcut to the app on your homescreen?

    I also just upgraded from an HTC aria to SGS2 and was looking at apps this morning to replace the HTC clock widget.

    I found the HTC sense clock & 3D weather widget and they were both pretty good but not like one on my old aria.

    I believe the HTC sense clock app will do your first request but not sure about the second.

    Thanks for the responses. Yeah, i've now found a few apps that let you at least press on the widget to open an alarm clock app.

    gigfy - cool that you just made the same transition from aria to galaxy s2. what else do you think about the change? I noticed typing is alot easier!
