MiniDashboard for Mac serves as a portal to a variety of mini applications or widgets you can quickly install on your Mac OS X dashboard. These widgets are different from what you can get through the actual Dashboard of your Mac.
Offers more widgets for your Mac OS X Dashboard: MiniDashboard for Mac brings you interesting widgets from OneMac.org, including games, productivity tools, and some fun applications.
Light and fast: You don’t need more than 1MB of space for this app. It is also snappy, although the loading speed of the app selections available depends on your Internet connection.
Can confuse new Mac users: If you are a beginning Mac user, you could be in for some confusion or disappointment. The app is basically just a mini-fied version of the actual Mac OS X Dashboard. It does not offer anything else other than allowing you to add new widgets from a source other than the official Apple Dashboard downloads page.
Redundant: You don’t really need this app. You can access the mini applications or widgets it offers through Safari, by downloading and installing them from OneMac.org.
If you are a fan of OneMac.org, MiniDashboard for Mac may prove useful, making it easier for you to browse and download widgets. If you are not, there’s little in it for you, especially since all the widgets are available online, in case you ever need one.
