Proverbs Widget is a Dashboard widget that displays a verse from Proverbs each time you open Dashboard. You can view the book of Proverbs one of two ways: in consecutive verse order, or in random order.

At the user's preference, it can also be set to automatically load a new verse each time Dashboard is launched, or to only be changed by clicking the new verse button (so one can ponder each proverb for a while).

Version 1.5 is the biggest update in the (short) history of this widget... with the largest enhancement being almost a complete rewrite of the underlying framework to

"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get "...this Widget." Proverbs 4:7 (kinda)

Looking good (the transparency was inapropriate). Do you think you could fiddle a bit with the edges of the widget? Something looks a bit off, a darker color and perhaps a bit smoother might do the trick.

Interstitial:

Good idea about the translation... I will add a note about that to the backside of the widget in the next version. But in the meantime, the translation being used is the King James Version.

Regarding the Proverbs 1:1 issue... yes, it does show just the standard biblical introduction to Proverbs ("The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;") rather than one of the actual snippets of wisdom which come later. I wasn't sure about whether I should remove those verses which were not proverbs per sé or not. It wouldn't be difficult to take them out though, if it was so requested.

Thanks for the reviews and comments, everyone!

Thanks for this - I like the use of widgets for this type of thing. I was wondering which translation is used, not that it affects my gratitude, however. Also, I don't know an easy way around this, but when it randomly picks Proverbs 1:1, it hits prologue rather than wisdom.

This sort of widget could be useful for educational/recreational use too. Like say history facts or famous biography snippets etc.

Proverbs Widget is a Dashboard widget that displays a verse from Proverbs each time you open Dashboard. You can view the book of Proverbs one of two ways: in consecutive verse order, or in random order.

At the user's preference, it can also be set to automatically load a new verse each time Dashboard is launched, or to only be changed by clicking the new verse button (so one can ponder each proverb for a while).

Version 1.5 is the biggest update in the (short) history of this widget... with the largest enhancement being almost a complete rewrite of the underlying framework to support skipping through Proverbs chapter by chapter. Graphical enhancements include a new icon, new fonts, smoother corners, etc.

Now in version 1.5, it features five buttons: two new buttons to scan through the book chapter by chapter, two to scan through by verse, and one to view a random verse.

Thanks for everyone's reviews and suggestions!
