Version 1.0 is betaware with beta quality results, IMHO. I think this is a promising and fun widget! I'm going to keep up with its progress. For now, here are a few bugs: 1) The button to expand it to full screen and back again doesn't do anything except inexplicably stop the playing video. 2) Not all the station buttons work. I got the BBC running! But then nothing else worked. I went to the developer's blog and played with the widget there with odd results. I got one German station running and then I could get it running back in my installed widget. But not all the blog's stations work either. 3) The thing is huge within the Dashboard screen. I seriously needs a button to shrink it down to a tiny litte box when you're not playing it. If such a button exists, I couldn't find it. Many widgets have such a shrink button. 4) Kind of odd: Apparently the widget is playing the blog version of the app directly. When I was attempting to mash on the buttons to get the widget itself to do something/anything, I could see the links to each of the stations being highlighted in the background on my Safari page for the blog. They apparently are one in the same. It's free! It's a great idea! It needs work! It seriously is betaware and not ready for prime time.
