    Hello all,

    I'm looking for the best widgets for your homescreen. I'm currently using:

    Twidgit Lite
    Calwidget
    Weather Widget
    Tunewiki

    Can't get Facebook Pro to work though - shame as it looked like a nice little compact app.

    Can anyone recommended any others?

    it all depends on what your needs are. My favorites are:
    Beautiful Home (clock and weather)
    MotoTorch LED (turns my Droid into a flashlight using led flash)
    S2 Calendar (shows upcoming events in my calendar)
    ScreenModeWidget (ewasy way to change screen settings)
    USBSwitcher (great when transfering files from my PC by usb cable)
    Tap Dialer (easy access to my frequently used phone numbers)
    Power Control (access to turn toggle wifi, bluetooth, screen brightness, auto rotation)
    Music Widget

    Would it be inappropriate to recommend one of my own? On my own phone (currently the N1, previously the G1), I use the Executive Assistant widget (along with the EA lock screen). Please see Executive Assistant (Appventive) for more info. Available as both a free, ad-supported versions and currently for $1.99 an ad-free version.

    Feel free to PM me w/any questions (or email support@appventive.com).

    Cheers,
    Steve
