    Are there any useful widgets for dashboard besides the stock ones and iStat nano?

    I'm wondering if there's anything else that's awesome and would be useful for someone who does a little bit of EVERYTHING on his macbook pro.

    Here's a link to the old Apple Widget page: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/

    Unfortunately widgets seem to be on their way out. The App Store has few if any. Which is a shame since they were a great way to get quick information.
    I have ones for tracking the weather, printer ink levels, and mail orders.

    I don't think the App Store has ANY dashboard widgets...

    Also, I don't think they are totally on their way out, as Apple continues to refine Dashboard in Mountain Lion. I personally think they are convenient and will continue to use them :cool:

    PS- here is a widget I made just for fun. It doesn't do much, but it was fun to make :D

    There are lots of GREAT dashboard widgets, but nowadays, widgets have fallen out of fashion and are not paid attention to anymore.

    I've got widgets for all sorts of simple or fun things that are quicker and easier to access via the dashboard than opening another app.
