    I have an Aria and a Samsung Captiate. I'd like to put the weather/clock widget on my Captivate. Does anyone know if it's available on the android markt, and if so where to get it?

    The weather widget relies on the HTC Sense UI, so you would not be able to load it on a Captivate. The Android Market does have a package called Beautiful Widgets which look like the HTC widgets, so that would be an option.

    I downloaded the app on my Captivate but for some reason it does not show up on my apps list. I can find it when I go to manage my applications but it does not seem to be a working app, what's the deal:thinking::thinking:

    Have you tried adding a new widget to your desktop? Maybe it is only a widget.

    it probably will be a widget... in which case jerkyboy, u need to hold ur finger down on the home screen (in an empty space) until a menu appears on the screen > widgets > weather widget u installed.

    Fancy widget is also a viable alternative. I use this on both my HTC phone and my Captivate. Remember they are widgets...not applications. They need to be activated from the home screen by holding your finger down on an empty spot.
