Must-have widgets

by Volker Weber


I am starting to add widgets to the Tiger Dashboard. Here are two that I find most useful. AirTrafficControl lists all available WLANs in the area. You can join an open WLAN by clicking its SSID. Niederschlagsradar zeigt die aktuellen Niederschläge für Deutschland und die Schweiz wahlweise als Animation.

I am also starting to love Tiger's widgets. I used Konfabulator a while ago but I like Dashboard even more, by the way: does anyone know of a widget to show timetables of public transport (in Germany)? I couldn't find one yet, I guess I'll have to make one myself.

I found good resources for Dashboard widget programming here and here. Here's a template for XCode.
