    "DISCONTINUED!"

    April 30, 2012  |   By StAnneAdmin

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    NONE! BOO to Yahoo!

    Cons

    Another useful tool discontinued.

    Summary

    Yahoo closed their widget gallery in April of 2012. I know because I went there to download a widget I had on my old OS and couldn't. Since Microsoft has also decided they don't want to be in the gadget business any more, I feel betrayed, actually. I need to find some kind of something that will provide the same functionality that will be available for the foreseeable future. Anyone got any ideas?

    "Frustrating . . ."

    April 6, 2012  |   By linyoest

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    Don't have any at this time.

    Cons

    This was a "required" application for another program I wanted to run, but this one loaded my desktop with "widgets" I didn't want or expect. I couldn't close or remove them. Finally uninstalled the program to get rid of them. Never did get to run the original program.

    Summary

    Not impressed.
