    Depends on the theme I have, I just change to those which fit. Currently I'm a bit tired of themes and such so I went for a basic look, so I got Beautiful widgets.

    Beautiful Widgets before they got the C&D from HTC. Glad I still have a backup of it.

    Beautiful Widgets is still in GetJar, and free. :)

    I don't see the need for a clock widget when you have the time displayed in the top right corner of your screen at all times. :p

    UssjTrunks, I'm guessing that you are under 50? Spare a thought for those of us who aren't and whose arms seem to be getting so short that no matter how we stretch them in front of us we still can't read that tiny clock! in the corner!!!!
    My clock of choice is SDS Clock which is very simple, shows the date too and the paid version allows you to launch 2 other apps (I have chosen Weather and Settings) by tapping above or below the clock. I have noticed that the developer has other similar clocks in the Market, varying by font and size.

    HTC Sense has made it so I must have a large clock and weather widget on my front homescreen. I just got so used to it that now the main homescreen looks odd without one. /sigh...so now I use Beautiful Widgets with the ICS theme.

    lol, same here. Beautiful Widgets it is, and change the theme over every so often just to make the Home look a little different.

    SiMi Clock for me too.

    Yeah, and damn if it isn't the prettiest one out there. The really sad part though is that since my last post it seems it has a few issues with ICS. Tapping the clock doesn't open the alarm, and the large weather animations don't work (the small one on the clock itself works fine) despite having transferred the animation files.

    I suppose I'll have to try out some of these other clocks.

    What am I missing about Simi that everyone likes so much?

    I gave it a shot. I hate the line. Yes you can make the line go away by making it the same color as the background, but then your time looks like this
    11: 03
    or this
    11 :03.

    And who makes you set colors with RGB these days? I'm fine with RGB as an alternative for people who must have that special shade, but making that the only way to set a color????

    I wanted to like this widget, but if there's no way to get around these issues, it's just too quirky for me.

    New Orleans Saints clock widget. Shows live NFL game scores, also has NFL top stories , team schedule's, and other functions. I think the app is available for most other teams also.
