Beautiful Widgets Receives Update, Introduces New SuperClock and Hi-res Skins

Just yesterday we revisited Beautiful Widgets with some new skins and today a major update popped up for it.  I suggest you take a look at the changelog above which talks about a new “SuperClock”, battery meters, re-written live wallpaper, hi-res everything, and a bunch of fixes.  It also introduced a fairly new UI for setting up your clocks which should make life easier for the novice user out there.  We are seeing one major problem though, and that’s the idea that all of the previously made skins will no longer work with these “SuperClocks”.  Let’s hope for everyone’s sake that current skins will be easy to port over or this update may be a giant failure.

Grab it from the market now.

Cheers Jason and James!

    How do u skin the toggle Widgets?

  • MK17

    Whoop! for the update

    So I really enjoy the forecast and options that pop up when I use weather toggle widgets, but prefer the look of beautiful widgets. Is there a way I can make the weather toggle widgets forecast pop up from BW?

    Also, Is there anyway to get my alarm clock pop up directly from tapping the time?

    I can’t seem to figure out how to get the new Live Wallpaper to work with it. Yes I downloaded the Live Wallpaper separately months ago… but everything is still the same with it… what am I missing :(

    Oooooo this update is total win. Superclock 4×1 instead of “smaller home weather” is nice. Hoping we get a “naked” skin update for it though. Not a huge fan of the square “card” numbers on the clock and the 3 available skins have it.

    Am I just missing something, I updated and I can’t seem to find that clock that is shown in the picture. I like that clock!

      You gotta choose superclock widget from the widget list

    I’m really diggin this new update. It’s come along way since the old days of just the one knock off htc sense flip clock. The htc lawsuit really made the creator innovate in a good way.

    That clock looks a lot like HTC’s standard Sense clock.

      Not really

    The one thing that has always bugged me about BW is the terrible looking background on the temperature for the notification bar. Remove that so it is just the temp and I will use it! :)

    Cool concept but they need some more high-res skins to compete with their previous lineup …. I’m very happy with their Smaller Home Widget on the DX however :)

    umm my skins work on the super clock. well the weather skins anyway. there are only two skins for the super clock widget at the moment though. i love it. just need more skins for the clock itself.

  • Keithsmnr

    Nice but as of now, only the stock skin is available for the super clock

      Not true. There were a few skins available for the super clock when I updated to this version at 5:30am central time.

    Its great to see this kind of innovation & re-write to an app that has been around for a long time. Good to know community supported apps like this continue to support the community, perfect symbiotic relationship.

    What’s the name of that clock widget?

    • Kaufkin

      RTFT – Read the Friendly Title.

      • EC8CH

        “Is it free?”

        he inquired with even more sarcasm…

        • Kaufkin

          :-) – admit it, on behalf of all folks who deal with the public, RTFM really is the answer that you wanted to give, but never could…

    Major update! Looks nice

    Looks like I got worst and the treasure chest!

  • Hogasswildmc

    I just noticed that your 3.3 version looks slightly different than my 3.3 version. My option tabs have rounded edges where yours are squared off. I’m using a DX.
