    Android is known for it's famous widgets. My most used widgets are from Mippin with their over the top information on things that interest me such as sports, technology, video games, etc.

    How about you?

    *Please explain the use of the widget*

    pix of your widgets or screens are great as well :)

    The only widgets I use are HTC's own.
    Clock (flip mode)
    Calendar (agenda mode)
    Bookmarks
    Profile
    Then the small toggle widgets for Bluetooth, GPS and Mobile Network.

    I've toyed with other widgets but they seem to suck a lot of battery. It would be very interesting to see what other people use.

    Weatherbug elite maps... I work outside, so the weather is important to me especially in the summer when thunderstorms roll through.

    SwitchPro Widget. It is just like the power control widget, but it does a whole lot more, and is highly customizable

    Beautiful Widgets. I don't run sense, and wanted a similar clock widget so I bought this.

    Jorte calendar widget. Just a nice looking calendar...

    And I'm not opposed to using others from time to time, but these are my most used ones at the moment....

    It can control from 3 to 7 functions (of your choosing), you can change the color, there is a reboot to recovery right from the home screen button on the widget. It is pretty cool...:eek:

    I thought Switchpro only had a regular reboot button on the widget? I downloaded the Quick Boot app to stick Reboot and Reboot to Recovery buttons on the home screen

    I think the reboot feature is for rooted only

    I believe Quick Settings also does the same thing, and Juice Defender is another one, something else for you to check out, and one more thing, I would suggest if you do try these widgets out and decide to uninstall them make sure you put your settings back to where they were

    Oh wow, you're right. Never knew that (AND the choice to go to bootloader!), kind of just thought it was just a regular reboot button. Looks like I can get uninstall Quick Boot and get rid of those two buttons from the home screen then.
