    I downloaded the HTC battery widget. I am wondering how accurate it is, or if it is more accurate than the meter in settings. The battery widget showed that within 30 minutes of unplugging and checking emails, surfing the web, and looking in the market, my battery had dropped to 90 percent.

    Seems to me that a 10% drop in 30 minutes would be about right, since that would add up to about 5 hours of heavy use to fully use the battery, right? I think that is around the rated time for the stock battery...
    Non-heavy use it'll last a lot longer.
    I tried installing that battery app and it crashed my SenseUI, so I uninstalled it.

    IMO:
    Battery is a nice widget...
    Tip Calculator should be an ap, not a widget...
    Dice is... not great...
    Today in History was still loading after 5 minutes, so I deleted it, but there are websites that give the same info, and don't take up room on my Hero.

    yeah...the battery widget is basically the only good one.

    tip calc is alright...you can easily use your brain to figure out a simple percentage but it's still useful.

    dice is almost pointless.

    today in history took forever to load but once loaded, i decided that it's completely useless as a widget since it loads too much data in such a small portion of the screen. the links on each data point makes it almost impossible to scroll through the information without pressing on a hyperlink especially for those with a rubbery screen protector (zagg).
