Does anyone else dislike the big ugly clock on the desktop?

    I was wondering if at all, that big ugly clock on the desktop could be removed. It's pretty big and ugly.

    I happen to like the clock, but wish there were options for different style clocks, as there are in the alarm app.

    If you press and hold on the clock for a couple of seconds, your G1 will give slight vibrating feedback, and the clock icon will get slightly larger. Drag the clock to the bottom tab, which will change into a trash can.

    Once you drag the clock to the tab/trash can and release, it'll be gone, "poof"!

    I like the clock. I downloaded Any Cut which allows you to customize your homescreen. However, you don't have access to the main screen, so you still have to swipe to get to your secondary homescreen.

    Big Ugly Clock

    If you long press on the clock you will feel the G1 vibrate and you will be able to move the clock around you will see the tab at the bottom of the screen turn into a trach can. Drag the clock to the trash can.

    I'm sure there will be a new clock app soon.

    I hope so anyway. It would be nice to see the date on the desktop as well.

    Ya that Clock is pretty whack. Deleting it was one of the first things I did. Looking forward to manageable Themes and the ability to update the icons! :)

    Themes will be real nice! Perhaps a nice digital clock replacement.

    I don`t really mind the clock in itself..But what i would like to do with it is move it over to the other side..You know when you swipe your homepage to get to the google section.

    If you LONG PRESS (put your finger on the screen and don't move it for about 1-2sec) you can drag the clock over to the next screen. You will have to drag it to the edge of the screen and hold it there for a couple of seconds for it to slide over to the Right "Desktop" Area. Since this can be a bit tricky there is another option - You can drag the clock towards the bottom of the screen (towards the grey menu button) which will turn into a trash can and trash the clock. Then swipe over to the area of choice, LONG PRESS, select WIDGET, and then CLOCK and it will put the clock widget where you have selected... Hope that helps!

    The clock has to go, at least the one that is currently on. The most frustrating thing is that mostly people like to keep clocks on home screen, just not the hideous ones like now.
