Getting More Widgets

Half the fun of using widgets is finding and downloading widgets to gather even more info for you, and they have everything from widgets that can track your flights, to widgets that bring you song lyrics for songs on your iPod, to widgets that are simply games. To find more widgets, open Dashboard (F4 on your keyboard or F12 on older keyboards), then click the Open (+) button in the lower-left corner to open the Widget Bar. Once it appears, click the Manage Widgets button, and in the Manage Widgets dialog that appears, click the More Widgets button. This takes you to Apple’s main Dashboard webpage, which gives you access to a library of literally thousands of free downloadable widgets. You can look at a listing of the top widgets or search by category, and when you see one you like, you just download it and it installs for you automatically. Then, to access your newly downloaded widgets, you simply choose them from your Widget Bar.
