MacWidgets for Mac's intuitive interface and easy-to-use controls make it a good program for those looking to search for and install widgets in many categories. Its dashboard menu includes clear graphics and widget labels, making it easy to identify useful applications to install.

After installing into the Mac dashboard, the application needs to be added to the active area for use. Once started, MacWidgets for Mac has a small window in the dashboard. The graphics are modern and well designed, showing the application name at the top, along with a search bar. In addition, users can click a drop-down to sort widgets by several categories and popularity levels. The widgets that are returned show up in the main window, which contains a graphic for each, its name, and button to download it. In general, the search completed quickly, as did the downloads for new widgets selected. The number of available widgets was extensive and across a number of categories, from weather to games.

With its easy-to-use interface and large selection of widgets, MacWidgets for Mac offers a good option for users who want a central program for searching and installing other widgets.
