    I turned Sense UI home/launcher on my EVO 4G and replaced it with LauncherPro. The only thing I miss are the HTC widgets, in particular the Twitter and News full screen widgets.

    I've tried several potential replacements, but have found none as good.

    For Twitter, I'd like a full screen widget that shows both tweets from people I follow and mentions.

    For news, I'd also like full screen and the ability to display articles from more than one source in the list.

    Any suggestions?

    Newsrob is reputedly a good news app. I downloaded it, but have never really tried it because I was content with the HTC news app (I'm still using Sense).

    Thanks. I tried NewsRob, but it seems to be exclusively tied to Google reader and doesn't have good widgets. I also tried Newsroom, but it only has glorified shortcuts as widgets.

    I'd really like a full screen widget. If I don't find what I want, I may end up writing my own.

    Beautiful Widgets makes a very nice replacement for the Sense clock. It's actually better as it lets you use downloadable skins to get the look you want.
