Review: DashboardCenter for Mac allows you to find and download useful Mac widgets

Search for widgets more quickly and download them with ease using this useful desktop enhancement app.

DashboardCenter for Mac aggregates all widgets available for Mac, making it easier for you to locate and download the ones you need. It lets you search for widgets using keywords, as well as browse them by category, and provides a description and screenshots for each of them. Fast, useful, and functional -- this app is worth checking out.

DashboardCenter for Mac installs into the widget menu so it can be quickly accessed. A search bar along the top of the main window is easy to locate and allows you to look for a specific widget by entering a keyword. Alternatively, you can select categories from the drop-down menu next to the search bar. Categories include games, news, and clocks, as well as specific sections for devices like iPods. When we selected a specific category, corresponding widgets populated the main screen, which is controlled much like a Web site using sliders. Widgets available for install are presented in a section that includes a brief description of their features, screenshots, and of course, the install links. The extensive number of widgets available covers almost every need. During testing, the links all worked well, and the installed widgets operated as intended.

If you have trouble locating and downloading widgets on your computer, DashboardCenter for Mac is the right app for you. It allows you to find and download widgets easily, through a convenient menu, and is stable and easy to use.
