Dashflix for Mac1.6

01 November 2008

Widget to check your Netflix queue, Dashflix mini also available.

What is Dashflix for Mac

Note: TuneBar is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

Dashflix... If you're like me, you are both obsessive and a Netflix customer. This combination leads to constantly double-checking what's in your queue and what has been shipped to you. Now you can engage in this psychotic behavior from the comfort of your own desktop!

The Dashflix widget gives you a list of your "At Home" movies, complete with estimated delivery dates. Flip it over, and you'll see all the movies in your queue. Click on any movie to bring up Netflix's summary of the film in question.

Originally written by Joshua Emmons, the widgets were donated to the public domain in April, 2008. The latest release of the code has been imported here and updated to work with Netflix's latest changes. Developers, if you're interested in helping maintain the code, please join the discussion group. This project exists so fun, useful code doesn't simply evaporate over time.

Excellent little widget, the faux-Netflix mailer is perfect. Netflix site updates will break the functionality, but the developer usually updates within a day or so.

An update to the NetFlix site in the past week must have broken version 1.4. This doesn't work as of 5/10/2008 (perhaps earlier).

Broken? It says that there is nothing in my at home queue and when I flip it over I do not see any entries. Hmm. 10.4 v 1.2

Although not yet loaded here, on the developer's web site (click "More Information" above) he has a new version (1.2) that fixes the estimated arrival date issue, as well as a mini-version for those (like me) that wanted a smaller sized Dashflix. Nice widget!

Neat idea. I'd like to see a larger font, especially given the bulk of the widget and the room available for the text. And it would be nice if it showed you the top 5 or 10 movies in your queue, not just the movies you have out, and I'm on the 3-at-a-time program.

This is a neat and simple widget that does what it claims and no more. The design is quite clever also. I like what it offers and would like to thank the developer. that said... 1) the widget might be too bulky for some. 2) the mouse scroll wheel doesnt work with the scroll bar. 3) it seems to rely on safari cookies which may be problematic for non-safari users. 4) the widget opens netflix pages in the current window (so if you are writing a review for instance and click on a movie in the widget you'll lose it...) I wish that... 1) there was an easy way to jump straight to your queue. 2) you could manage your queue (move movies up/down, add to queue) 3) you could look up movies
