Smart Widget Installer

OS X 10.6 or later is required. For OS X 10.4.10 or 10.5, download an older version.

Tired of Dashboard closing your open widgets whenever you install a new version of widget? Smart Widget Installer is the answer.

Just drop any number of widgets on the app to install them. If the widget is not installed, it will install normally. If it is already installed, you get the smart upgrade option, which will update the widget without closing any copies you already have open. If you’re tired of having to move your widgets back in place every time you update them, this is for you.

With OS X 10.7 or later, you can set Smart Widget Installer to open automatically:

  1. Select any widget in the Finder
  2. Choose “Get Info” from the File menu
  3. Go to the “Open with” section of the Get Info window and select Smart Widget Installer
  4. Click the “Change All…” button, then click Continue

Dashboard App for iPad

TechCrunch links up Carnegie Mellon student Richard Hong and his pretty much pixel-perfect looking rendition of Apple’s Mac OS X Dashboard widget platform… on the iPad! The video shows not only the widgets working, but being added from the web and managed on the iPad as well.

Video after the break. (Tap the link below the box if you’re on your iPhone or iPod touch).

BTW: Its our Rollercoaster Mac OS X Dashboard Widget in the end of the video:
