More Widgets

If you’re running Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger”, here are a couple more map-related Dashboard widgets. Quick lookups are the epitome of Dashboard, so it makes sense that location- and mapping-based widgets will proliferate; it’s worthwhile to keep an eye on Apple’s widget downloads site.

  • The WORLDview Widget is a quick reference to the world’s countries; it provides limited information (capital, flag, a basic map) and, when I tried it, I found the interface a bit wonky. Via Gadling.
  • The Google Maps Widget is self-explanatory: it provides access to Google Maps from the Dashboard. Via TUAW.
