    A transparent one would be great!!

    I don't know who they have designing these widgets. But, they should find a new designer.

    Call me nostalgic, but I've become too fond of my ol' flip click and weather animations on the stock Inc.

    Is there a way to keep the look of the stock Inc clock/weather widget but make the shaded area behind all the information transparent?

    EDIT: Found the answer on xda forums - had to push the apk to the phone.

    This link isn't working anymore - trying to install the clear/transparent genie news and weather widget on my dinc running Virtuous 2.5 - already tried various other files with metamorph that I found through google searches but I'm getting an error message that says they are invalid because the control file is missing or it was improperly put together...

    any suggestions??

    my first post - thanks all!
