Bring back some Anna widgets to Belle... please?

Just curious as to know the complexity of adding and allow settings for widgets to be multiple sizes... like a minimized Music player widget AND Mail widget - I got 4 e-mails to keep track of and I'l love to have them all on one Belle home screen like I could with Anna, not swipe between two and already have two screens taken up just for mail. I dislike having more than 3 screens as it is, but it was nice to have the multifunctional clock/profile/date widget from the Pre-Belle era.

 

Anyone else feel the same way? I'm not going to really bicker or complain as much as I just want a developer to add different sized widgets to choose from... I don't really care to dynamically go through portions of my e-mail from the homescreen, It's reasier for me and others just to see who e-mailed last and be able to open up the mailbox in it's entirety... 

 

I've grown to dislike the dynamic element because it's more processor intensive and more animations and more space taken up to make the battery die just that much faster. 

 

Are there also themes that change the mail widget color? it's blindingly white and was wondering if there was a theme to change the attributes of those widgets?

 

thanks to all reading and reacting

great link, I'm not sure it'll work for me... Will attempt to locate an update in my area, but why not release it in the OVI store? it would simpler to choose the clutter you want... just saying

 

and will that feature pack address my issue?

If you have an older Symbian^3 device (such as N8, C7 etc), you may not find any update as mentioned on that article... This feature pack is available for newer Symbian phones, such as 700, 701 etc
