When talking of some of the most downloaded and popular homescreen widgets for Android, its hard to look past Beautiful Widgets. The entire suite of elegant and customizable Beautiful (SuperClock, Weather, Today and Toggles) Widgets is available in the Android Market for around $3 but thanks to GetJar (and its Gold project), Android users can now download the full pack of Beautiful Widgets from their Android store without paying a dime. This is great news as it seems that the developers have already removed the free (Lite) version of the app from the Market. Despite being a tad feature-constrained, at least, the Lite variant allowed Android users to experience on their devices whatever elegance Beautiful Widgets had on offer. However, with the full version now being offered for free on GetJar, rest assured that not many users will be found complaining against the removal of the free one.
Weather apps come and go, but when talking about something of the caliber of Beautiful Widgets, the testament that goes largely in favor of this revered app is that, despite being priced rather highly as compared to some of the free alternatives, it has been able to attract a large contingent of users who are willing to pay every single penny that Beautiful Widgets asks to be procured. Once you install Beautiful Widgets, you can modify app’s Home, SuperClock and Weather settings along with tweaking the skins settings for each. Beautiful Widgets are comprised of as many as 17 different widgets that include:
- Beautiful Battery
- Beautiful Home Weather (large & small)
- Beautiful SuperClock (in 4 sizes)
- Beautiful Text Clock
- Beautiful Today (in 2 sizes)
- Beautiful Toggle (total 12 switches)
