    I have tried several launchers, but so far none of them will let me use my sense widgets. So far I've tried Launcher Pro, Go Launcher, ADW Launcher, Circle Launcher & Crazy Home. Although I prefer Go Launcher, none will let me access my sense widgets. Is there a launcher app out there that will allow me to put my sense widgets on the screens? TIA!

    Sense widgets will only work within the stock HTC launcher. Part of why they've been so impossible to port out. Just look for similar replacement apps. I do wish someone made a similar scrollable pic frame widget.

    I tried adw-but again widgets were limited. Guess I like my sense widgets, wish there was some way of importing them!

    Well I like the friend stream one. Where I can type in a status/quote/etc & it posts to both my Facebook & Twitter. The clocks, but d/l a few I could live with. Oh yeah my bookmarks. Not the picture one, but the list one... Not real biggies.

    ...... and power settings similar to sense. I like to be able to turn off/on for wifi, mobile network. As well as turning off & on my background data. Helps to conserve my battery!

    Since the update, I now have those controls in the status bar. So now I only need the icon for turning off background data. And then a sounds one to silent/vibrate & normal my phone. Thanks everyone for your replies!

    The widget pack that I mentioned has all the widgets you need.

    root and CM7 to have both widgets and notification buttons as part of your core.
