    How do I switch back and forth between the two. So far think lp has less dial lag. But the lag that bothered me most is posting on Internet in landscape mode.

    As long as you have not set any one as default, it should ask you which program you want to open up with

    What I would like to know is how do you get the HTC weather clock on the home screen on the Launcherpro, like they show in the image from the market app??

    I don't think it's Sense's clock/weather, I think it's a clone, perhaps Beautiful Widgets?

    That was something I didn't like. I couldn't find a half decent clock. Also my bookmarks. Couldn't find a suitable for those. But phone seemed more responsive with launcherpro. Thanks for top on home switcher

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Application

    This is where you find either HTC Sense or LauncherPro, (pick the one you made as default)

    Once in there, scroll until you find the Clear defaults button, press it.

    It will now give you a choice on which to use.

    Here Richard found one that looks exactly like the HTC Sense Clock Weather Widget

    Fancy Widget . It's free, but you have to download it using this QR code.

    If you want a cool and customizable clock, download divi clock, it doesn't have the weather on it but is sweet nonetheless.

    Fancy Widget has been discontinued, when you try to download it it won't download. Sucks because Beautiful Widgets and W&T both dont have accurate weather updates.

    Use the bar code scanner and it will download on your phone, that is why I posted it, works fine, but hurry before they take it off the site and deactivate it, LOL

    I could be wrong, but I believe the paid version of launcher pro has some additional widgets. One of them in the works (probably out already) was bookmarks. Check it out here:

    LauncherPro

    I don't think it was available to Android 1.5, try clearing your default on Sense and run "Home", that's stock Android, see if you like it.

    I use Flipclock. Great widget and doesnt use a lot of battery. Only problems i've found with it is that it takes a long time to load when a reboot is done, but so do most other widgets. It has a nice look and there are plenty to choose from. I am using simple dark right now, before that i was using nice pink. check them out.

    I checked it out and still like the Fancy widget I posted which looks exactly as the HTS Sense weather clock, you can't even tell I am using LP other than the taskbar

    I just wanted to find a simple digital clock that showed only time and date. I didnt like the weather widget b/c it wont show the correct weather in my home town. It seems that it just pulls the weather from the city which is 30 mins away.
