    When I have an HTC Clock widget on my home screen the time does not update fluidly. The clock will display the correct time only after I've unlocked the phone and given it several seconds to update. If I swipe over to another screen, wait any period of time (the longer the better), and swipe back; the clock will display the time at which I left that screen and again needs several seconds before it leaps to the correct time.

    I've tested this theory on the native Android clock widget and it worked correctly. IMO, it defeats the purpose of having the HTC clock widget when the clock in the notifications bar is always accurate.

    I am also using ATK but I've made sure the Clock process/app is in the ignore list.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    you have something lagging your phone

    the behaviour is normal, the lag is not. i can see my clock snap to the right time when i got back to the homescreen it is on but it takes like a split second

    Thanks for the input. I guess I'll just rely on the android widget and sacrifice the eye candy of the HTC ones :)

    Yeah, I'm hoping this gets fixed as well. I love the HTC clock widgets not only for the look, but also for the simple fact that they allow you to go right to the clock application by tapping them--huge for those of us who use their phones as alarm clocks and don't want to have to navigate to the clock just to sleep for another 15 minutes. Plus, it just gives me a little more justification for eating up such a large chunk of the screen with a clock... don't just show me the time, Android clock widget! Do something!
