    Guys, what are the best APPS/WIDGETS for the following:
    - News articles/News realted stuff (politics, UK/World news)
    - Financial News
    - Live Stock Prices
    Theres a couple of multi-source news apps which you can personalise by subject or news feed. Google feed, BBC, UK Newspapers Online but my favourite used to be Sky News.

    Google Finance and Bloomberg are one of the best stock apps (I think)

    More recently I havnt been using my news feeds though because I have installed Opera as my default browser and saved different news websites on my homepage.

    I've decided to give launcher pro a try and already I'm impressed. The screen transitions are super cool. Only thing I'm missing now is the giant sense clock.

    You can get shoddy replacements via Beautiful Widgets themes.

    I like the default BW clock though

    Okay I've customised my Laucnhe Pro and just wow, I'm loving it already, it's like I have a totally different phone now. Things I'm loving:

    1.It has that iPhone animation when you open apps where it's transitions from the centre.
    2.The dock is super cool, I've found some Icons which has made the fun more dynamic
    3.Removed the notification bar so the phone looks so much more classy
    4.Loving the transition through home screens, super smooth

    I can't go back to sense now :sigh:

    Sense has the best dialer though, which is something that you can't live without!

    For news apps as well: Pulse.

    News for Dual Cores: May (1.2ghz QC) and 1.5's end of year along with Ice Cream (legitimate copies).

    It's gonna be a good year I feel

    Is there anything close to the HTC dialer on the Market?

    I love Gingerbread but the default dialer has always sucked.

    I've set my grid up at 10x9 (or 9x10 not sure) instead of 4x4. It allows for much better resizing :coma:

    The love the sense dialer, but it's only an app so I can still use it on Launcher Pro. The only thing I can't use from sense before now is the big clock widget which I don't mind too much.
