    I just downloaded SeisMac and I want to run it all the time through dashboard. Is this possible?

    For those who don't want to click the link, SeisMac is a small program that turns your laptops' Sudden Motion Sensor into a real-time seismograph. It's cool in a widget kinda-way, but it's not a widget :(

    Thanks :)

    * I searched the forums for widgets and programming but all I got was threads for actually programming widgets from scratch. I no know programming :p

    I'm pretty sure you cannot run an App as a widget.

    i don't believe you can as of yet. but when leopard comes out there is a widget making program included, so that should be able to do it, although in the keynote presentation, steve jobs did only demonstrate it working with webpages.

    It only works with webpages. Widgets are basically small webpages which is why that works so well. The ability of that widget maker is built into Safari.
