Pref pane for Dashboard.

Overview

Dashboard in Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" is a very nifty way to get a quick glance at a ton of information without the hassle of opening a lot of applications. It's an easy mouse click or keystroke away when you're in front of your Mac and need to take a peek. But what about when you turn your attention to something else or walk away for a few? Wouldn't it be neat if Dashboard popped up by itself after a certain amount of system idle time? Well, it's pretty neat indeed with Dasher, a preference pane that gets your Dash' on automatically.

What's new in Dasher

Version 1.0.3:
  • Universal Binary. Dasher is now compatible with both Intel and PowerPC Macs.

An excellent looking utility, must be very useful. But you must consider, that it may consume some more system resources in the background to keep Dashboard "ready"

I used to have to wait about 15 seconds each time I launched Dashboard for it to "catch up", but now with Dasher launching Dashboard every so often throughout the day, when I launch DB manually, it's all ready to go! No more waiting for widgets to update the first time I launch them (Plus I need more memory). This is great, thanks!

Simple but essential addition to Dashboard IMO. Developers respond quickly to issues, which is a huge plus.

Dasher does what it is designed for well. I wish it added another option: To activate dashboard upon sleeping the machine. I find it useful to have weather, stocks, and other widgetty goodnes ready for me when I get to the computer in the morning. It could use a few more features to help justify being a PrefPane.

Works as advertised... but would be great to have a further option in Dasher that activates the screen saver.
