I have tried this but agree with Robk, the app is not flexible enough and in the latest versions of leopard does not show all my widgets. I think if the developer could get together with the widgetrunner developer they may have something really good

HoverDash works great. But the widgets will float on top of all your other Windows.
E.g. The widgets will float on top of your Safari Window.
This is annoying.

I found another FREE program which lets you specify whether or not you always want to widgets on top of all the other windows. It is WidgetRunner.

Maybe the author of HoverDash can look at the code for WidgetRunner and use its tricks which allow you to keep widgets JUST on the Desktop.

One word to describe this, fantastic! Been hoping something like this would turn up for ages. You can choose which widgets you want to run outside of the Dashboard layer and the changes survive a restart, excellent! To return a widget to Dashboard is easy too. Hope HoverDash works in Leopard as well. Thanks to the developer/s PlatkusWorld, for truly useful software.

Thank you for positive comments. HoverDash works just fine in the Leopard seeds that Apple has seeded to developers. I'm confident that it should work in the official release as well. Glad you find it useful.

Definitely like this - brought my iTunes widgets to my desktop so I can change songs without opening iTunes or leaving what I'm doing. My family will like like it so they can catch the game scores while working too!
