    I just bought Beautiful Widget and selected the clock and weather skins. My questions is: how do you get it on the home screen. I've tried a few things but the stock home screen is still there.

    Its best to first remove the google search bar from the top of the home screen so the upper field of the home screen is open to take the clock and weather image. Once you choose a clock and weather style make sure you save both after choosing one. Then go to the home screen and long touch with your finger where the google search window once was. Click on android widgets then select and save "beautiful weather" from the list. Your clock and weather icons should now appear in the general area of where the google search bar once was.

    I finally got it to show up on the home screen. Thanks for the help. The only thing left is to get the clock/weather to look more like the Sense screen.

    I picked Airportone for the clock and standard for the weather skin because they looked the closest. The problem is the white numbers for the clock are just laying on top of my wallpaper which is visible through the numbers. What I was wanting was the familiar white numbers with the black background.

    Any help would be great.

    Try "KeoFlipBoldNaked" for the clock. Then use Boca for the weather. I like this combo because it kinda looks like HTCs clock except the background is more transparent and blocks less of your wallpaper. Give it a try let me know what you think. Boca is the closest thing to HTCs weather app. It looks just like this only with bolder numbers on the clock flip cards.

    There is also an option under Home Settings (go to the Beautiful Widgets "app" to configure) to center the weather icon like Sense does it.

    This is better than the sense one. You should enjoy this more as it had more options and as you have discovered, more skins.

    Download Link: SenseUI (SenseUI.zip)

    Download Link: SenseUI Charcoal (SenseUICharcoal.zip)

    Very simple install:
    1) Download/Install the latest Beautiful Widgets app.
    2) Place the SenseUI and/or SenseUI Charcoal folders on the sd card: sdcard\data\beautifulwidgets\skins\
    3) Look for skins within the app and apply

    I can't seem to find where I can download different skins. I click on "Download Skins" but nothing ever comes up.

    that's the right place, you should see a list of skins to pick from. you will need to have either wifi or data on and give it a few seconds to load them up.

    There are a lot of skins sometimes it takes a while for them to come to the phone. I also noticed if I had a weak signal it sometimes would stall.
