Beautiful Widgets Live Wallpaper Released

Beautiful Widgets was updated today and included a special prize if you ventured into the app’s settings.  The developer behind one of the most successful apps ever, created a live wallpaper to compliment BW called Beautiful Live Weather.

This new live wallpaper pulls up your local weather and streams it across the background.  Pretty cool right?  Oh, and it works even better if you have Beautiful Widgets installed.

*Side Note* - I know that many of you are reporting that you cannot see the app in the market.  Try our direct link below from your phone’s browser.  There is also word from the dev that they will be posting the apk tomorrow.  It’s free so I’d think about posting it, but I’m not sure everyone involved would be that excited about that.

    Hey everyone, just created an empty icon set to eliminate the duplicate sun/moon.
    Download link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/pafrxw
    To install, download the zip on your phone (or to your computer and transfer to your sd card) and unzip. Move none folder into data/beautifulwidgets/wskins. Note: make sure there's no redundant “none” folder from unzipping…I made that mistake to start. All the files should be in wskins/none. Once it's in the right place, just go to Beautiful Widgets settings, configure, select icon set, and select 'none'. Now you're good to go with no icon in the way of that beautiful live wallpaper.

    • pyroholtz

      It seems, that now you can just grab the “none” skin from within BW's interface. Is the BW method better or worse than grabbing the skin directly from your link? It seems like the BW method is much faster and less complex,(although not that this is an issue for me) I was just curious what you recommend Drew.

      • Drew

        Through the app is much quicker. Mine was just a temporary method until they put it up. If other people are like me I don't always like to wait, so I thought I'd give everyone an immediate way to get it until they responded. Fortunately, since I emailed it to the LevelUp team late at night in the US, they got it in the UK and put it right up. I love when developers are that responsive!

    I couldn't download this from the site or thru the app setting.. :( Why can't i get it?

  • cee_em_jay

    Until someone can find a way to make a live wallpaper not lag the phone all to bejeebers, people can release all the coolest looking ones they want to, rooted or not, cool, but no thanks. BB 1.0 did it for one night before it started not recognizing my memory card. I can overclock to whatever, still lags it more than I would like.

  • andy

    its 1:27am here and the background has been showing the sun rising since midnight. Anyone else running into that sort of problem?

  • http://twitter.com/AngelRod111 Angel Rodriguez

    It works…just make sure you have the updated version of BW. The app will keep sending you to get the App, but if you already have it installed you should notice that the LWP pulls the same info ur widget shows. Without the App there is no way for the LWP to update, so it just changes based on the time. Either way, I removed it because the 2 moons were driving me nuts! LOL

  • Nolan

    This is so annoying, I really want this app but some get it and others don't. I really hope this gets fixed soon. I have tryed through beutiful widgets, the bar code and the direct link. Nothing.

  • EVOIXMR

    link doesn't work for me and market doesn't either.

  • Chefmelv

    Bugless Beast V 1.1 is out Now!! downloading now. Just released in past couple hours I guess.

      I'm running it now! Still looking for something new. Lol. Is yours running hot?

      • evltwn

        I just downloaded it too…so far it's good. Running 7slot 1ghz Kernal. Transparent stock theme. All though I was running BB with Dark Edge over it, which I really loved and will probably go back to if I can't find any real difference with BBv1.1 Any thoughts?

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          Damn, why am I just hearing about this lol
          Seriously, nothing new? lol :-(

          • dominguez619

            I see nothing. In the vague description in rom manager it said it included some froyo elements. But I haven't found anything spectacular or anything for that matter

  • Drew

    Anyone know how to create icon skins for this? I really want to create one that has no icons. That way there's no double sun/moon. Or they could just update with an option to turn off icons. Either way…I want it to happen ASAP haha

    • Drew

      Nevermind. Got it. Just emailed you instructions and the icon set Kellex. If you don't respond quick I'll put the file and instructions up so people can go ahead and do this.

      I basically just created an empty set of icons to install so that you don't get the duplicate icons.

    can anyone help i rooted my phone today and download both rom managers and when i try to flash clockwork it says error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands please help asap

    i am a noobie so thanks for whoever can help

  • Cowpoke

    If you can't find it in the market, go to settings -> applications -> manage applications -> market -> clear cache and uninstall updates.

    This works and you can find the live wallpaper then. Not sure what the side effects of wiping cache and uninstalling the market update is, may wipe out your credit card info?

    • Drew

      This worked for me. Don't know what the side effects are, but app aware about a minute after I uninstalled the updates to the market and got the notification the market was updated…apparently updated again. So I'm assuming I'm back to where I was before.

  • joed5122

    I was able to download and install the Live wallpaper widget but I'm not sure if I've got the full version. In the settings there's an option to unlock wallpaper. When I click on that it asks me if I want to get Beautiful Widgets from the market. I've had BW for a couple months now and it's fully updated so I'm not sure what's going on. Likewise when I set up Beautiful Home and I scroll down to the bottom of the settings where it says Weather Live Wallpaper the option is to Download from Market. When I click on that it shows that I have it installed. Not sure what's going on.

    • OldNuc

      I am going to jump to the conclusion that there is a problem and the live wallpaper just does not like some of us.

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        You guessed it lol

    • nkhex19

      I am having the exact same problem. It doesn't seem to recognize I already have BW downloaded already.

    • Trem

      The links stay there. What happens is, so long as Beautiful Home or Beautiful Smaller Home is running the live weather feed updates the Live Wallpaper. It works fine for me on my Desire and looks ace.

      I have the Beautiful Home on a seperate screen from my main so as not to have two suns/moons. Of the seven screens available (thanks to the More Icons Widget) I am only currently using three on my main scene.

      The only problem I have is even though geolocation isn't activated in BW my gps still keeps activating?

    • scorpion77

      I am having the saaame problem …

  • OldNuc

    For some reason, can not locate it by any known method.

  • jbrock98

    dang it! i had a problem with my bank on buying an app that charged me from overseas so i had to go w/ weather widgets hope they come up with this too

  • Codash

    I got right to this app from bw settings. D/led no problem. Looks good, let out cycle through for a day or two…

  • Codash

    You need to check out MrBob's new 'steam' rom. Its awesome. Consider featuring it on friday!

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      Really? lol What did you like about it?

      Maybe it's just me but I found it rather shallow and pedantic.
      lol But Cyan in general just can't compare (IMO) to Bugless.
      Or even Pink-Life by JRum.

      Can you give me some insight why you switched over?
      Thanks

      • nkhex19

        There are so many new Rom's coming out I can't keep up. Lol, JRummy just released a new Rom (The Shiz) I tried that and it was pretty sick. I am currently running Cyanogen 5.0.7.1 and Its honestly really smooth. OC'd at 900mhz and I have experienced no lag doing anything. Very impressed. Have you checked it out?

        • aarynk

          Nice!! I didn't know that the Shiz ROM was JRummy's will have to look into that one…

          Running Smoke Glass Esque 1.5.3 over Cyanogen 5.0.7.1 OC'd at 1ghz love it. Just as smooth if not more than Bugless Beast V1.0

          will probably switch to BBV1.1 when it comes out though

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            V 1.1 is OUT!!!! GO GET SOME!!! :-)

          • droidroks

            Kellex or anybody try BB1.1 yet? Looks to be a lot better and snappier. The first and only rom I've tried so far is BB1.0 after reading your kick azz review. *hint*hint*

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          I'm downloading the Shiz right now. Seems like just a fancy customizer though :-P
          My SD card is getting filled with nandroid backups of all these ROMs hahaha
          I tried 5071, really wasnt blown away. I guess I havent found a theme i care for yet.
          idk :(

        • scorpion77

          I liked 5.0.7.1 but my Gps stopped worked for my weather channel widget an didn't work so well in the other ones either .. :(

      • Codash

        I obviously must be a noob. This was the first time I switched (came from Bugless Beast). I can clock Steam 4.5 at 550 and the preformance is still lightening fast with launcherpro (feels faster than Bugless). I enjoy the customization. Changing the notification ticker text, the clock color, having the battery percentage in the battery. (all of these things are new to me). I have never tried a cyan, but I think 'steam' is based off of that. I liked Bugless Beast, the font, icons, widgets were awesome. Bugless started to heat up on me too much (pushing 135F+) But I want to play with 'steam' some more. Mr.Bob said new fonts are coming out by this weekend, so I'm super stoked.

  • Carson's dad

    If you have the most recent version of Beautiful Widgets installed there is a direct link to the live wallpaper in BW's settings.

    • doog

      Already tried this route.. Still doesnt find the App properly

  • Carson's dad

    If you have the most recent version of Beautiful Widgets installed there is a direct link to the live wallpaper in settings.

  • PsychoticPenguin

    Pretty sweet, try looking in the Beautiful Home app, the link to download the live wallpaper from the Market is on the very bottom of the options when you first open it.

    • mike sombloski

      just tried but i got the same 'there are no matches in the market' message. thanks anyway, i guess i'll just try back in the morning.

    • craig

      Not one method or link I have found including the ones here have worked.
      What gives?

  • doog

    I have BW installed, yet i cannot find the BW Live Weather Wallpaper by a) searching Level Up Studios in the market b) clicking the BWLW within the Settings of BW… c) the posted QR Code brings me to a page that does not exist in the market.. Running Stock Moto Droid 2.1… Any Suggestions?

    It didn't just crash GDE, it locked my entire phone up. I actually had to recover a backup to get rid of it as rebooting just locked the phone all over again every time.

  • teejaytm

    So off topic but do I have to come from cyan mod to try JRummy's or can I go from my bugless beast to JRummy's?

    • kellex

      Off topic!

      You can go between all of those as long as they are ESE81 based ROMs which they are.

      He didn't get rid of the graphic, it is a cloud in the screen cap so it blends in really well in landscape
