iChat notification app.

Overview

ichat. personalized

locket is a Dashboard widget that provides an ambient monitor for a single iChat user on your buddy list. When the person is available, the locket opens. Otherwise, it is closed. Clicking on the open locket will start a new IM chat.

Sample lockets are free to try; locket is sold customized by the developer with your image, starting at $10.

A generic public domain version is available at the developer website. Sample shown with Joan Crawford (public domain image)

This whole concept of so-called "ambient" GUI is just silly in my opinion. And this widget gets my vote for the most overpriced and essentially useless one yet. What's so hard about using the Buddy List window and keeping it small in a corner or hidden?

Who needs a calendar in the Dashboard? There's an app for that already, and the Dashboard one doesn't even let you browse or set appointments. And another address book interface? and an iTunes controller? Or weather, you can just open a web page and keep it in a corner of your screen. Ditto package tracking. My screen is out of "corners". And I don't want to see a list of 40 people I talk to once a month. I just want to know if one person is online. Not even to say "hi," just to know they are OK. I want a little less information, and a little more elegance. Oh, yes, and as for the price, there are nine useful and attractive free samples, possibly more coming, and if you can handle Photoshop and a text editor, you can customize it yourself (donation requested). It's pretty close to free.
