    This will be moved along with the other half a dozen or so "BW is back!" threads that belong in the Android Applications forum.

    I actually really like the design of the new clock. Instead of floating there on your homescreen, it actually looks integrated, like it belongs there and is a part of the phone. I'm not a huge fan of the clock font, though. Is that the same one that is on the 2.0.1 lock screen?

    I believe thats the look he was going for. Its not too shabby, I still prefer the HTC style though.

    Hmmm...much prefer the previous floating style, rather than edge-to-edge. Font on the clock isn't to my taste either...hopefully there will be options to change the font/style in the future. Developer has been great - frequent updates and improvements.

    Please do Not post asking for free Paid apps or apps removed from the Market for such reasons. No one will allowed to promote illegal distribution or to solicit for the distribution of paid apps or those removed from the market such as BW {previous version} ...

    I have issued Infractions to certain members for asking and for providing a link to download this illegal software

    If you have questions you may PM me ...

    Thanks for everyone's cooperation in this matter.

    I have to say, I was skeptical at first about the new look, so I made sure I backed up everything. Wow! I must say, I really dig the new look actually on the device, seeing it in the flesh. Especially with my wallpaper, it fits perfectly. It actually looks like a DROID. I guess, also in the fall-out with the HTC thing, I almost don't want any HTC-ish stuff on the phone anymore. Now, I can say that I'm not trying to pretend the phone is something it's not... it's a DROID, not an Eris. AWESOME, LevelUpStudios! Mad, mad props!

    I'm with Sooper! The new BW looks good and the small home widget looks excellent, and not an add-on.

    +1. I was somewhat disappointed when I saw the mock-up, but actually seeing the small home on my Droid, I'm very impressed.

    I like that it shows the date now (not sure about others, but date wasn't shown on my small home widget previously), and I always thought the HTC widget looked a little like a pair of eyeballs. :)

    Forgot about the date! Certainly a welcome addition. It lets me delete the clock from the power strip on Home++.
