Would love for this to work with the new iCal.

Love it. It's almost like having a Windows task bar without Windows. It's nice to keep all your info in one place.

Love it. Just what I've been looking for to keep my to-dos constantly visible but unobtrusive, and remind me of up-coming deadlines. Nice way of displaying the current track in iTunes, too.

The only feature missing for me is the ability to run Stattoo without a dock icon.

Stattoo is permanently on the desktop. It's a bar on the background. And it's really 5 or 6 separate things you can put on a recessed "bar" on your desktop.

Dashboard you have a variety of widgets (you can mix and match), but it only shows when you bring it up. Dashboard is more expandable, as widgets are really just mini javascript applications.

Download a copy and have a look. I thought Stattoo was kinda neat, but not enough to spend $13. Though I do like Panic's apps.. I have licensed copies of Transmit and Unison.

I'm pretty sure Statoo 1.0 was released before Dashboard.

As I understand it, Statoo displays the "capsules" on your desktop all of the time, where Dashboard only displays your "widgets" when a hotkey is pressed.

Unlike Dashboard, there is no need to press F12 and on slower machine to load it, Dashboard lag is a problem when you don't have the latest Macs.

I looked at Konfab. but couldn't find anything for my very basic needs - then I decided to check out Stattoo. Problem solved....I just wish the hot key would work but no problem.

Quite versatile for my needs and very stable up to now. Good job.

would be great if you can control some of the things you see- for example itunes will be great and if there is an option to stay always on top of every program.

Installed Fine. Started asking for Audion... Clicked cancel and then the program continue loading normally. However, the app still doesn't work properly with iTunes... and crashed 3 times while I was moving other tattos around. I really want to like this app but when many other products do similar things... it's hard. I think panic would be well advised to make an update to transmit and implement some new features to a stale application.

in the audio panel on the preferences, it pops up with a dialog asking where Audion 3 is because it can't be found, Since I haven't got Audion 3 on my computer I clicked cancel, but the dialog appeared again and again. This is a bit annoying.

do a Find... use Audion as the keyword. delete the files on your Mac with the name Audion in them.
