Apple Announces Dashboard Widget Contest

Apple Announces Dashboard Widget Contest

by , 8:30 AM EST, November 8th, 2004

Apple Computer over the weekend announced that the Apple Developer Connection (ADC) is now accepting entries for the Dashboard Widget Contest.

"This is a terrific opportunity to begin developing Widgets for Tiger and to receive recognition for your work," Apple said.

Dashboard is a new feature that will be part of Tiger, the next release of Max OS X that is expected to be released in the first half of 2005. Dashboard is a semi-transparent layer that zooms across the Desktop with a single button click, and adds access to mini-applications called Widgets.

Entries will be judged on technical excellence, innovation, and ease of use. The developer of the winning Widget will receive public recognition along with an Apple 40GB iPod. The contest is open exclusively to Apple Developer Connection members whose memberships include access to pre-release versions of Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger. Submissions must be made between November 5 and November 30, 2004.
