% of cpu usage varies depending on your cpu... that is always true. my computer shows about 2%(+/-0.5) when hidden.

just to be clear, the widget does still use resources all the time, but now doesn't use as much when dashboard is activated.

Hi! Indeed there was a bug in the 1.0 version of Tigergotchi that made it consume CPU cycles just as fast as meat, water and love. This bug seems to be the cause of similar behaviour we have now seen in other widgets as well, and we have reported it to Apple. The good news is that this is fixed in Tigergotchi 1.0.1, it now uses no more than 1.5% CPU time....

a nice idea, but this little cat is a resource hog.

with dashboard active it takes nearly 50% of my resources, and with dashboard inactive it takes about 2%. i understand the need to have it constantly run, but that breaks apple guidelines and should at least be noted.

i wasn't the target market in the first place, but needless to say-- it is off my computer.

A virtual pet that matches my OS. Cute! Installs smoothly. Feed, water and love him and he becomes very satisfied. I love it.
