    People keep speaking of the Handcent Widget, but I still have yet to find this. I have the Handcent icon, but definitely not a widget.

    I am thinking people don't realize the difference between an application icon and a widget.

    The Handcent widget is under the Android Widgets. It's just a Handcent icon with green circle the pops up on the bottom corner which shows the number of new messages.

    Up until this update I had no problems with the widget. Now it is not available in my android widget list.

    That is weird. I just updated and the Handcent Sms is still in my Android widget list.

    Update #1

    I just rebooted my phone and the icon link broke. Handcent Sms is also missing in the Android widget list now. Looks like it has been removed.

    Update #2

    I found that after a soft reset, Handcent changes back to version 2.9.15 in the about page. I know 2.9.16 is installed though because 2.9.15 had the Sms widget (icon) in the Android widget section. I tried reinstalling the app and the same thing happens.

    Update #3

    After uninstalling, rebooting, and then reinstalling, the widget appears in the Android widget section. I am now having the boot-cache issue which means that if I reboot with 2.9.16 installed, it will break the widget and downgrade the app to 2.9.15.

    Is anyone else having this issue? I may end up installing 2.9.15 as I didn't have any problems with that version.

    Update #4

    I just hard reset my phone and 2.9.16 works good now. I'm already back to my 100% wake time though. It occurred after a phone call was missed. I really like Handcent though.

    Still hasn't fixed the icon. Is it really THAT difficult? Honestly I wish HTC would just fix the dumb SMS app because I'm kinda tired of Handcent.

    I just am not as impressed with Handcent in general as the HTC messaging app. But that bug is just...jesus...battery killer and a half.
