In our first installment of our weekly “Download This App” we bring you an app that makes Dashboard what it should have been from the start. Mesa Dynamic’s Amnesty allows you to run widgets as if they were their own stand alone app. Why is this a good thing? It means you get to run them on the desktop away from all the other widgets and in turn makes the ones you use frequently much more accessible. Amnesty allows your widgets to run completely separate from Dashboard with their own preferences and expanded features.
Also, another cool aspect of this app is that since it is completely independent of Dashboard, it allows Panther users to use the widgets now. This aspect alone could surely give the knife in the back of Konfabulator a good twist.
You can try Amnesty out for 30 days free of charge, after that it’s $19.95 for a single license (a bit steep in my opinion). So give it a try and let us know what you think about it.
