Dashcode Beta

Apple has officially released Dashcode, an application for developing Dashboard Widgets. It’s in beta, but from what I can tell from using it, it seems to be pretty feature complete, and very stable.

This application is really cool, I must say. It allows anyone, even someone with very very little technical knowledge, to create a dashboard widget in about five minutes. It took me about five minutes to make a Christmas Countdown widget, which I’m now happy to say is living in my dashboard.

You can check this out by downloading it from Apple’s Developer Site. If you aren’t a member already, it’s a simple 5 minute free registration. Once you’re registered, you can download lots of useful stuff besides Dashcode, like Apple’s Developer Tools.

If you’ve tried this out, what widgets have you made?
