It updates with good regularity. The graphical organization by roadsign is a big plus versus other widgets. Feature-wise, it does everything a traffic widget can be expected to do & coverage is great. Ease of use is excellent. Value is excellent, as it is completely free & works very well. Stability: there have been no stability issues on 3 different Macs.

This is a great widget! It definitely supports all important areas of the country. If it doesn't support your area, move to a less crummy area.

This would be nice if it supported my area. Useless until it does.

Works great! When this particular Widget first came out, it did not work. Now the programmers have through with flying colors!

Folks, you can update (refresh) any widget by clicking on said widget (just to make it active) and then pressing command-r (just like refreshing in a web browser). Obviously the no-scroll is still an issue, but the update thing, while it would be lovely if it did so automatically, shouldn't really be much of a big deal.

i agree that this will be better once an update feature is included. i thought that it was really cool, until i noticed a day later that it was still displaying the same traffic info that was obtained from the day before and hadn't updated. i couldn't find a way to get it to update other than changing the zipcode and then changing it back.

Will be a nice widget once an "update" button is added. Thanks for taking the time to make this!

Didn't anyone test this before it's release?! I am also experiencing the 'no scrollbar' and 'no update' issues. I'd love for it to work because I'd use it religiously!

I downloaded this on 4/30 and I would really love it if it would only update. I can get it to work ONCE by closing and then reopening the widget and resetting the zip code. But no more updates after that. Also, there is no scroll bar and I can't see all of the items if there are more than 4. Needs work but has potential
