Floating window displays number of emails in Mail.app inbox.

Overview

MailBadge floats above all of your applications displaying the unread count of your Inbox. Hold the Command key and drag it around your screen - even above the menubar. Click the mail icon to calculate CPU usage, show more mail details, control iTunes, and show the date and time in a larger window. (The large window will revert to a mail icon when anything else is clicked.) In the large window: Click the iTunes icon (or album cover) to open iTunes. Click the CPU usage icon to open the Activity Monitor utility. Click the larger mail icon to open Mail. Click the large date icon to open iCal. Click the small preference icon (looks like a circle) to open the preferences window. Click the little desktop icon to hide all open apps and close open Finder windows. (MailBadge is a faceless application -� it does not have a menu or appear in the dock.)

Ugh, Dashboard... the implentation is so clusmy right now. And Statto... well yes, a nice program but one that is also lacking in a lot of configuration features. Look people.. it is cool for multiple apps to exist that do the same thing but in their own way.

Hey guy !! This is a wonderful app (and FREE !!) it use virtually no CPU, no desktop space; with it you can see lot of thing without opening any apps; konfabulator is shareware and use lot more memory; it's really subtle and very clean and cute; no dock space, no menubar item. Lot of shareware should feel shame about this freeware... Try it before trusting other comments please :) (and no i'm not affiliated with the developper)

although this is cool, and i like it, this has already been done in a program called Sattoo, and there as a widget for Konfabulator. It'd be better to recreate it as a widget for Apple's upcoming Dashboard.

Ok, played around this tool for a little bit. My first request is that it would be nice if you could resize the mini-badge. Second would be some options to configure what is shown in the large view - how many of the most recent emails to show.. which widgets to show... you get the idea. Otherwise, the app itself seems stable and lightweight. If you hide the dock and don't prefer menubar apps then this is actually quite useful... because I imagine for a lot of people they are using konfabulator to do the same simple tasks. Anyway, this is a fine effort... no need to slam the guy.

Actually this could be useful to those that like to hide their Apple dock.
