I'm posting this because I feel somewhat responsible for what I consider plagiarism following a post I made on version tracker.com. (http://www.versiontracker.com/php/feedback/article.php?story=20050716120531829#28400) My opinion is that Widget Maker now appears to be nothing more than a copy of something called WCode/widget creator which has been out as a beta version for over 3 months. I know that there are always going to be several products that offer to do the same thing with a twist- but in this case really I'm saddened by what's happened. WCode/widget creator, which can be found on www.widgetfactor.com, is VERY cool, has a better user interface, was there first and is actually a cheaper shareware! It deserves your support. Laetitian

I have tried several of the widget making programs out there and did not like the interface here at all. I prefer WCode, it was easier to use and I love the different templates it offers.

It is a bug then if it is complaining when on your desktop. As long as it is in a writeable drive it should not care. I program because I enjoy programming, but I also have a day job and working on an MBA. For me it is much easier to release and then add features. Plus I did put out three betas before the first release and got little feedback.

Woah Woah Woah...Let's just get some things straight. This is a rough and unfinished program, and the developer is just clearly trying to make some money out of his little app. Well, sorry mister, but it doesn't work that way. You have to make a nice clean Mac OS X compliant application in order to do that! The program doesn't follow Apple's UI guidelines what so ever, and doesn't even have a mask on some of the toolbar icons. If you're just an engineer, then get someone else to do the graphics of your application. It is missing lots of features (which are also missing in WCode), such as code debugging, syntax coloring, and so many other things, too many to list here at least. The Wizard includes too many steps, and the application requires itself to be in your Applications folder to run, WHY? Not worth $16.99, should be freeware with its current quality, stability and feature-set. This is certainly a beta, not ready for real use.

I find it much easier to get the base product out and add features than to make a product that does everything. We are almost done with the syntax coloring (done, but slow now so disabled until it is sped up). The wizard is actually three wizards in one (an easy, medium, and advanced wizard). Rather than make three wizards we went with one. The program just needs to be on your hard drive rather than a non-writeable drive.

May be easier for you but it gives your product a terrible reputation, and makes it look crap from the start. Release it as a beta if you want to release it when its not really finished. Wrong, the app complained even when it was on my desktop and said it needs to be in my Applications folder.

Since the app icon is clearly taken from dashboardwidgets.com, perhaps the next update can include an original icon?

The base of the icon was taken from a purchased stock icon set called aquapak. I am an engineer, not a graphic artist and I realize that.

Some strange inconsistancies: The author's website mentions a 5 day limit, not 20 days as mentioned above - Also, the version on the site is 1.1.0, not 1.0.1 as mentioned above. Which is it?

I believe that it is actually a 10 day demo and during the demo it is fully functional. The current version is 1.1, but I would always check the developer's site for the latest. Luke Jackson LAJ Design

The website says it is version 1.1 but the application itself, when a 'GetInfo' command is issued against it, reveals that it is version 1.0.1. Confusing.

Honestly I am not sure what the other program does (I will see if I can take a look though). I took a look at where widget maker was orginally and decided to go with an IDE format and the widget manager (actually had another developer suggest going to a graphical format). I decided it needed to be able to open apple widgets, 3rd party widgets, and also developer widget examples. Even then it still seemed too complex, so I added in the widget wizard, just taking one of the developer examples. So that is where it is at now. Still a few minor things to add, but for the most part done. I did add recently to the manager so you can disable or enable dashboard, which is handy if you are running short on ram. Please let us know of anything that you would like to see added.

As the developer I took a look at Wcode today and the two both use an IDE format and toolbars, but so do alot of other programs. Since Wcode does not actually allow you to try it (asks to buy first), I did not get to try out the features. Widget Maker also has a widget manager and a Widget wizard built in. As well as an online tutorial. So while they are a like in ways, they are different in many features. I think we (Wcode and Widget Maker) are on the same path of trying to make Widgets easier for users. I like to use an IDE to develop in and want the same thing to make widgets in.
