Beautiful Widgets are back, baby

Beautiful Widgets are back, baby
Two days ago we learned that one of our favorite Android Apps, Beautiful Widgets, was forced off the Market. This is because HTC felt it looked to similar to their own SenseUI/TouchFLO home screen widget, and they sent LevelUp Studio a cease and desist letter. At that time, we informed you how current users of Beautiful Widgets could back-up the app using Astro, as many felt it was gone for good. But you know the old saying..."you can't keep a good thing down", and today an updated version of Beautiful Widgets made its way to the Android Market. This new version has a different layout and appearence, so hopefully this is enough to make HTC happy (and to stop legal action). If you update to the new version, but don't like it, and have the older one backed-up, you can always uninstall and revert back to the original one by installing the .apk file. So which version of Beautiful Widgets do you like better, the new one or the original? Let us know in the comment section below.

I say, just get the real thing and stop stop messing around with the phone. I do admit, the original Android interface is ugly and I can see why people are switching to Sense UI but come on. Stop copying us!

I first heard of this App when PA said it was taken down, and was dissapointed when I couldn't download it. Most of the free time widgets I have found are very small, and some are just downright hard to read. I was really excited when they threw the program back up, and downloaded it on the spot. Compared to screenshots of the old HTC style, I have to say I like the new style better. The more "digital" looking font goes well with the droid, and the big screen widget is absolutely amazing compared to it's competition on market. Also, the single power widgets are a great alternative to the standard "Power Control" widget that the droid comes with, where most people will only use 1-2 of the buttons on it and it takes up a 1x4 spot. Well worth the "approximately 1.42$" that the app costs. Great job guys!
