    "It is great."

    March 10, 2010  |   By Poetrywriter7

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    The weater widget is accurate & I really like it. I also love the desktop calendar, very convenient as is the desktop digital clock. Small & accurate. Just the way I like it.

    Cons

    There is nothing I dislike except about 1 or 2 years ago I had the Garfield clock for a widget (loved it) & somehow lost it & have never been able to get it back.

    "Very good, funny, practicle, but not all the widgets."

    March 7, 2010  |   By irena64

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    I liked some of the widgets very much-Garfield, Weather, clocks, yahoo, notepads, games...It's quick,and very practical to use. There are so many widgets, so I'll need more time to try the rest. I liked how easily I could delete those I didn't like.

    Cons

    Some widgets I tried were rather impractical and boring, but luckily there are others similar to them I can use. Also, I tried to find ZaKi widget, but it seems not to be available anymore.

    Summary

    The product itself is very functional and easy to operate. So far I have tried only some widgets, of which I liked some, and some I didn't. But, I'll surely try some more.

    "Yahoo Finance Widgets have been broken for 3 months"

    February 1, 2010  |   By leftcoastdave99

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    Great concept, but highly unreliable. 3rd party apps are terrific, Yahoo appets are not so much

    Cons

    Submitted multiple trouble reports from which I received confirmation that these broken widgets would be fixed. Three months later they are still broken.

    "Widgets keep moving around on desktop, frustrating"

    December 21, 2009  |   By CurlyBrian

    Version: Yahoo Widgets 4.5.2

    Pros

    Lots of simple widgets, searching and installing widgets is easy.

    Cons

    If you have any programs which run full-screen in a different resolution your widgets will keep clustering in the middle of the screen, even if you lock them in place. The most useful widget of all, the WeatherBug one, hasn't worked for a year.

    Summary

    If you have a setup with a large screen, don't use any full-screen games, and require only simple gadgets like a clock, calendar and general weather then this might be a good fit. If you want Bloomberg radio, WeatherBiug with radar and forecasts, or international support then look to the free competitor. Updates to widgets flash the screen if not visible. General quality of non-Yahoo widgets is poor (missing settings pages, error message, update failures, etc.). Yahoo Picture Frame moves around desktop every time the picture changes from portrait to landscape and every reboot, it has been broken for years and there is no alternate to display pictures stored on your computer. Good first impression, poor foundation shows quickly. I would call this neglected or abandoned software.
