What is the Dating Widget?
See photos of single people that meet your dating interests, right on your desktop!
First you set your dating preferences (I'm a Male/Female seeking...) and your location.
The Widget will then automatically download photos of selecting singles just for you in your area!
The photos will be displayed as a slideshow, showing a different photo every 30 seconds.
The set of photos will automatically update every few hours.
If you are interested in someone, click the heart icon (or double click their photo) to go to their profile to learn more about them.
Click the next and previous button if you want to skip through the photos manually.
Or click the search button to see your matches online.
The Dating Widget works in Mac OS X Dashboard (Part of Mac OS X 10.4) and Yahoo! Widget Engine (aka Konfabulator) for Windows or Mac.

What is a Widget or Gadget?
A widget was first popularized by the software Konfabulator. This was software that worked on Macs or Windows
that let you install these small programs called Widgets on your desktop. They would
be available for quick access right from your desktop at any time, and could act as
calculators, mini games, digital picture frames, clocks, controls for iTunes, and much more.
They are meant to be used as small, handy applications - not robust applications such as complete word processors.
relatively easy to develop. More advanced Widgets also access the Internet to show live data, such as news,
webcams, and in the case of Dating Widget, photos of people that meet your dating criteria.
The four flavors of widgets:
Our Dating Widget is available as a Yahoo! Widget and as a Mac OS X Dasboard Widget.
Google and Microsoft Gadget versions are in development!
- Yahoo! Widgets:
Yahoo! purchased Konfabulator and rebranded it as the Yahoo! Widget Engine.
You must run the Yahoo! Widget Engine software to use Yahoo! widgets.
- Mac OS X Dashboard Widgets:
Apple Computer added widgets as a standard features of Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger"
which really popularized the whole concept of widgets.
