Looking for a time, date, and weather app. I would reaaly like the original app that came with my little tab, but have since lost after upgrading to Gingerbread. That app wasn't too large or pretensive, just had the weather, time, and date without too much other fuss, but I am open to others. Did a search on the market and I don't like any of the options I saw, I'm hoping someone knows something I don't (which shouldn't be too hard, haha).

Beautiful Widgets is highly customizable, with different sized widgets and lots of different skins available.

Thanks for suggestion. I wound up going with fancy widgets cause it seemed the simplest and most streamlined while also offering a nice picture of weather conditions.

Just picked up my new 10.1 Tab Saturday and downloaded Fancy Widgets b/c I've had good success with the app on my other Android devices - Incredible, Eris, Droid 2, etc. For some reason I cannot get the clock widget to appear on the fancy widget. I've tried adjusting all the settings, skins, etc. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. It's a rather simple app to use on my phone so I assume there must be something else going on here other than operator headspace. Any suggestions?

After playing around with Fancy Widgets some I found that the lack of a clock is related to the 4 X 4 widget size. Apparently there is no clock skin for that size; it's only a large weather widget with lots of useless info on it. It works fine on the 2 X 2 size and I really want a clock so that I can tap the date to launch my calendar app. Anyone had these issues with Beautiful Widgets? I've used them too on my Droid 2 but finally went back with the stock widgets after instability issues.

Hello! I'm new to the board! I'm also looking for this weather clock widget. It was replaced after updating to 2.3.4 on sprint. I can't find it anywhere.
