Convert Widgets to Apps
Mesa Dynamics has released Amnesty Singles, a new developer tool that creates applications from widgets through a drag and drop procedure. Users can drag a widget onto the Amnesty window to convert the widget into a small, standalone application. The created application offers options on how the window will act (desktop, floating, or standard) as well as features an auto-refresh timer to gather information from the internet. Though the current Amnesty product, Widget Browser, supports running widgets in Mac OS X 10.3.9 Panther, not all widgets are supported fully; therefore, Mac OS X 10.4 or later is recommended for Amnesty Singles. Amnest Singles creates Universal Binary applications for both native support on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs.
