This past Monday, Konfabulator 1.0 made its debut.
It seems to be taking off quite well. On Monday, there were about a dozen Widgets available. Some basic clocks, a weather widget, a calendar. Five days later and the count is well over forty, with Widgets for search engines, controlling iTunes, and even some small games.
The program is very easy to use, simply download the disk image and drag it into your Applications folder (I also recommend setting it up as a Login item). Once you run it, an excellent wizard-type program walks you through Konfabulator’s use and features. The initial set of Widgets are nice, but one of the first things you’ll want to do is click the Konfabulator icon in the system menu and select “Get More Widgets…”. This will take you to the Widget Gallery to pick out and download more Widgets.
Registration for the program is $25. Currently, the Widgets are all free, and I think that’s the way the developers want it. This is definitely a program to try out and will certainly grow a large set of Widgets.
Have you tried Konfabulator? Have any favorite Widgets? Any Widgets you’d like to see developed?
