If that widget looks familiar and you're not using HTC Sense, chances are you've been acquainted with LauncherPro Plus and the Sense-like widgets that are bundled with it. I'm a big fan of LP+ and all, but the only thing keeping me tied to it were the awesome widgets. Thanks to Android Pro Widgets, however, I'm free to move on.
Android Pro Widgets is a free Market download that looks to replicate the Sense/LP+ widget and make it usable on any launcher. Android Pro Widgets does just that, and it does it well. Widgets scroll nicely, and there's a good variety.
One of the best selling points about Android Pro Widgets is that it's actually free to use. The only things you miss out on by not buying the license are the skins, unlocking the timeline widget, and a few features unique to certain widgets (people, calendar, agenda, and bookmarks). There's fairly strong theme support already, and the "Holo" theme based off of the Honeycomb look is just too cool.
If you're looking for excellent widgets but don't want to have to be confined to Sense or LP+, I'd definitely take a look at Android Pro Widgets. For me, it means being able to use ADW EX again, and that's worth the $1.99, to me.
More pictures and download links are after the break.
