    Pretty cool..has agenda and Month view, you can switch between the two views with a tap. Haven't had any issues with it. Scrolls smoothly.

    The only thing I'd like to change is to increase the font used in it, it's just a little smaller than I'd like.

    Used to be when I used ATK before reading all about how Froyo renders it useless, if you ran ATK your pre-installed widgets would "freeze" so if you ran it at 4:30pm your clock would read that until you restarted the widget. So I stopped using task killers, but now I want to see about also using non-preinstalled widgets.

    Thanks for the input folks!!!
