I wouldn't be surprised if they are a residue from the time when Apple still thought that the iPhone would need nothing but webapps. A kind of testbed or part of a project for webapps on the iPhone, which then fall into disuse when it was native apps all around in the end. I treat the Dashboard as I kind of overflow area for the menubar, for things I want to have at hand now and then without having to see anything of them in between.
On my Logitech mouse, that means I can bring up the Dashboard by clicking the scroll wheel. Dashboard is my quick weather lookup, the location of all 8 my stickies. And a quick calculator. I don't really use it for much more but for those three simple things it's worth it to me. Widgets do have value, they are simply ignored by the people making these OSes.
The thing is most people want easy accessibility. For example probably a good chuck of iOS app could be web apps but aren't because Apple lends almost no support or attention. Same thing with Android except you can't have chromeless web apps. Remember that Windows has Widgets but they ignored them too.
Probably the most interesting development in Widgets is KDE where they turned pretty much everything into a widget. I'd probably use iStat Menu, but I'm cheap. I use the international clock, the unit conversion, the weather one, the calculator and one that fetches lyrics for music I'm listening to and put the metadata on iTunes. I currently check exchange rates since that is very important for us mexicans that buy things abroad. I suppose if they ever dissappear I CAN cope since there's a million websites substitutes for these, but I don't need to visit those sites since I can just check the info on my widgets.
Personally, with Apple replacing all their first party OSX apps with iPad clones, I see a future where the Mac will be able to run any app from any ecosystem. I love the dashboard too. I only open it up a few times a day, but it's helpful as the widgets don't clog up my menubar with other similar apps. I use it for Stocks, Weather the Apple one , custom Safari Dashboard widget of a weather radar gif, Delivery Status, and my two favorite widgets of all OS X Dashboard: can it be revived, or is it destined to be a ghost town?

Registered: Jul 9, Posts: Currency Converter is a useful widget to precisely convert to any currency in the world.
Fills in a gap oddly left out by Apple. A must have for your Dashboard. This little widget will allow you to quickly convert any currency from your Dashboard. It offers the following features:. Automatically updated exchange rates Support all the traded currencies of the world Support the old legacy european currencies like italian lira, deutsch mark, french francs and other legacy currencies of the world Support multiple currencies conversions you can add all the currencies you want to the conversion table Support multiple widget instances, so that you can keep open more than a conversion table, each with a set of preferred currencies You can choose the desired decimal precision, from 1 to 5 decimals You can evaluate expressions ex.
You can sort currencies by name, by ISO code or by countries all the countries of the world are listed! Help me with the localization in other languages You can choose an interface theme between Blackboard the new default theme , Blackboard basic without the currency sign and currency flag , Mini useful for small screens , Mini translucid semitransparent and European the old default theme.
More will be added in the future, you can suggest me your ideas about them.
