    Are there any widgets around anymore that have the HTC flip clock look or did they have them all taken down?

    search the market for "weather widget" and buy the $1.49 widget and add the free update. pretty much a dead ringer for the Hero clock with weather info

    Thanks guys! I was going to get beautiful widgets but I don't like the change in the clock. I better get that weather widget before they get the C&D from HTC too!

    It used to look just like HTC's flip style clock, but now it has a digital clock look that I don't like.

    FYI, I just installed the weather widget ($1.50) and it looks awesome!

    lol, its ironic you asked your question when you did. This weekend i switched from a Hero to the Moment as well and felt disappointed that the Hero clock/weather widget was missing and had installed that widget only a couple hours prior to your post. Certainly worth a buck and a half!

    Maybe slightly off-topic, but I think the change to beautiful widgets is just awesome, and I love that you can change the font with the latest release. The flip-clock thing is fun, but I dunno, I got sick of my phone looking like everyone else's... and the redesign definitely helps that!

    I want a Nixie home clock! The only one available doesn't have the widget and doesn't do the fade between digit changes that I like to see in my Nixies :(

    OK, I went ahead and updated beautiful widgets, and a part of me wishes i wouldn't have, BUT its really not THAT bad. lol it just turned it into a digital clock. We can not alter the color of the clock but there are 3 different options for font Android, Bloodwax, and Tahoma...not much of a change. once i pick my daughter up from school i'll take a photo and post it. ;)

    Cool, I have been sitting with that available update sitting in my market for quite a while. I just haven't wanted to update it because of the reports that they changed it. I can't wait to see the screen shots! I would really like to see what all the clock options look like!

    The reason for the clock change with Beautiful widgets is because the developer recieved a nice warning letter from HTC for trademark infringement if they didn't change the design. I like the new design but I do miss the old one.

    Sorry, very busy day at work, just saw this now to respond. Three font options, although I prefer the original one. I should mention that if you back up your .apk file before updating you can always revert back to the old version. I lost mine due to a semi-bricked phone, but don't mind at all!

    That's why I'm afraid to update. It's my impression that it is impossible to go back.

    Don't update. He said that if you update the widget, you will not get back the original.

    Not true. See my above comment. If you don't like the redesigned one you can uninstall it and reinstall your backed-up .apk file.

    I was informing them about what the DEVELOPER said to me personally when I asked about it. Now as far as the technological ways of restoring the original clock, I have no knowledge of that. I only repeated what was told to me and what is also on the details of the widget when you install it.

    Since you know, maybe you can share this with everyone else, otherwise pump ya breaks dude.

    I just installed this widget.
    But I noticed that with it running or even after install, my phone would not go to sleep.
    I rebooted the phone and it seemed to go to sleep, but once i started the widget again, it would not.
    As soon as I uninstalled the weather widget, it went to sleep as normal.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    This is unplugged (forgot my charger today).
    I am going to try and isntall it, run it, then reboot and see if upon reboot it is acting normal. I will report back.

    What would you suggest using to backup apps to the SD card?
    I know there is one... I just can't remember the name.
