The developer of Wcode will be spending a summer working on Dashcode and highly recommends it. However, In the event that you really do want to use Wcode, maybe to decided whether or not to hire the developer who created it in his early high school years, send an email to the address listed and I'll get you a registration key.

Make templates for Wcode, the instructions for creating them is in the manual bundled with Wcode. If you make one send it to me and I will put it on the widget factor website.

it'll get you started, but you still need to do coding and graphics work, so it doesn't make it much easier.

more importantly, i didn't see the plugin creator/manager anywhere. either it doesn't exist or it's not intuitive, and there is no help or directions.

my 2ยข, it's not worth more than $5.

why would it be there? Most software including freeware has some basic support/instructions...

It's full of features, but a lil' on the expensive side.. It makes the widget making process 100% less painful.

Good app with Great potential.
Sets out the basics for novice developers who may want to cobble quick widgets together.

That being said, as some have commented before. For experienced developers, most of the elements that Wcode brings together can be created manually in about 10minutes.

Still a good app, though.

One question: for the developer, why do the widgets created keep disappearing?
They disappear fromt the widget manager install screen (if you wait long enough), and they disappear once initiated in Dashboard...
--
Saw someone else ask this, didn't see it answered.

Cheers.
