    Just got my phone today from Best Buy and I love it, but I am rather disappointed in the widgets offered from Samsung. There isn't nearly as many as on the HTC Evo, I am surprised that there is no Music widget at all. Does anyone know of any music widgets similar to the HTC Evo's, preferably a large one that shows a pic of the album cover?? Any other apps that I can download that has a little more widgets?

    I've never used them but I know a lot of people who love the app beautiful widgets. A lot of people on Aosp roms that miss sense use those widgets because they are close to sense. Not sure if it has a music one or not.

    The touch Wiz UI has a fisher-price look and feel to it, HTC Sense looks way more polished.

    Yep, that's what I've always used on non-sense ROMs along with LauncherPro.

    One of the pros and cons of the Evo 4G was that they had these great Sense widgets and yet I eventually had to get rid of all of them for the sake of battery power. I was able to grab Beautiful widgets from the Amazon app store when it was the free app of the day. I'm going to try those on Touchwiz first and then move to LauncherPro if it's not good enough.

    Almost every third party music app has widgets. I personally use Meridian.

    Oh, and if you want to use a widget, do NOT move those apps to SD. The widgets stop working if you do that.

    Does Fisher-Price have any design patents awarded in Europe? Samsung does not need another lawsuit on their hands. :)
