FancyWidget v. Beautiful Widgets- HTC Sense clock
My Incredible arrives tomorrow and the first thing I'm going to do is install LauncherPro. With that said, I really love the HTC weather/clock. I want a replacement that looks exactly like it. I'd like it to have the weather animations when the phone gets unlocked but that's not necessary. So which is the better option, Fancy Widget or Beautiful Widgets? Which is more accurate? Do any of them have issues with not reporting the time or weather correctly? Thanks!!!
P.S.- another random question. I'm coming from a Blackberry. Is there anyway to make my unlock screen list my name and email address in case my phone is lost? Thanks.

I love Beautiful Widgets, I use that for my weather/clock needs on my home screen. It also comes with some nice toggle widgets for WiFi, airplane mode, vibrate, silent, gps and bluetooth. It does have the animations on unlock. I also can attest to the fact that the developer replies quickly to bugs or problems and fixes are put up fast. I have not had an issue with the time or weather not updating.

You can download the app, and if it doesn't look like what you are aiming for, return it. I think there is nothing wrong with using the 24 hour return policy as a trial...

I'm using Fancy Widget myself and it's absurdly close to the real thing. I switched back and forth between Sense and LP using HomeSwitcher, and I barely noticed any difference. You can set it to open the stock HTC Weather and Clock apps when you click different parts of it, just like the real deal.
