Notefile: on the Mac App Store, iCloud, and more Now available on the Mac App Store Dashboard is great for simple widgets like Notefile…
Plus: the anything widget (beta)
Extend your Dock or desktop onto your Dashboard. Create visual shortcuts to your favorite sites. Create a button to open new widgets. Or just decorate your Dashboard.
Just by dropping a file or two onto Plus, you can:
- Create a widget that launches any application, widget, file, folder, or web address just by dropping it onto Plus. It’s perfect for quick access to things you don’t want cluttering up your Dock, or widgets you open often (like Stickies or Delivery Status).
- When you drop on an application, file, or folder, Plus will automatically grab the icon—but if you prefer, you can drop in another image to display.
- If you just want to decorate Dashboard, you can drop in any image—even animated GIFs! You can drag images from your computer or straight from your web browser.
- A simple slider lets you adjust the image size. For larger images, check the “Max” box (where applicable).
- To edit your settings later, drop in a new file, or move the widget slightly and press + on your keyboard.
If you don’t already know how to drop a file into Dashboard: first you need to make sure you have a keyboard shortcut, mouse button, or screen corner set up to open Dashboard. To do this, open System Preferences in the Apple menu. Click the Exposé & Spaces icon, then click the Exposé tab. Once your shortcut of choice is set up, you can start dragging a file, activate the Dashboard shortcut without letting go of your mouse button, and then drop the file onto the widget.
