    I am experimenting with different home screens for my HTC Desire. So far I'm testing out Home++, Launcher PRO and ADW.

    The only thing that I haven't managed to find which will let me switch from ever using Sense again is HTC's widgets.

    I have found alternatives for the bookmarks widget and one for the calendar, although not perfect, it will suffice.

    The one thing I haven't found a replacement for is a sync button. HTC has a many toggle widgets and there is one that when pressed, it will begin syncing everything. I find this handy, so I can sync everything when I want, rather than hourly or whatever.

    Note that this isn't a widget for turning on or off auto sync, it's a button so it syncs everything when pressed.

    Is there a widget that does this? I have extended controls which covers everything but this!

    As said in my post, I'm using Extended Controls, but that just turns on and off the auto sync. I want a button that syncs everything when I press it, not to turn on and off auto sync.

    I'll look at the other one, but I have a feeling it'll do the same thing.

    It will do the same.

    So is there a widget that when I click on it, it will sync everything, rather than just switch auto sync on and off?

    I just downloaded the app "Synker" from market.
    It's still in beta but it has a "sync all" widget, much like the HTC stock one, and it seems to work just fine.
