HoverDash takes advantage of a little known feature of Dashboard which allows widgets to be used outside of the Dashboard. HoverDash does NOT use the well known developer mode of the Dashboard that allows users to drag widgets out of the Dashboard.


Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later is required. HoverDash is a Universal Binary application and will work on all PowerPC and Intel Macintosh computers.
