A Mac Like Dashboard?


Recommended Posts

"myboard" is a fantastic application which unfortunately suffers from too few useful apps, but it does have weather, notepad, twitter, & a couple others....if ppl would design apps for it it has a lot of potential, id probably prefer it to windows gadgets, or at laest consider it as an alternative, although they are pretty convenient, theyre less aesthetically pleasing imo.

Widgetdock version 2.9 - Available here: http://www.osx-e.com/news/widget_dock.html

Search around for widgets and you will find many that emulate most of the Mac one's very well.

Here it is running on XP SP2 on an APPLE 30 inch Cinema Display

It is customizable so you must be missing something regarding the icons somewhere. I can't remember how I did it but when I get the chance to play on a PC again, I will see if I can find out what the problem is.

What I do remember though is that I set it up as an almost perfect clone to the Dashboard's running on my Mac's. All of the widget icons were 100% correct, the only problem was that some of the widgets themselves did not work as they do on a Mac ...

Press "Managage Widgets" click on the icon and choose one from the window.

@Mark: You have some widgets like Flght tracker and iCal on the list. Is this windows and do you still have the widgets?

Maybe you can send them to me or else.

Thanks,

Björn
