Page Capture Widget v1.1

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

The icon of the Page Capture widget.I’ve created a new widget that will generate a screenshot of an entire web page — no matter how long it scrolls! The Page Capture widget is the easiest and fastest way to generate these normally tedious screenshots. No longer will we have to puzzle together multiple screenshots manually!

Don’t forget to donate!

What You Get For Free:

  • Multiple instances allowed (each with their saved preferences restored).
  • Choose how much to resize the image (default is 50%).
  • Easy to use: type or paste a URL —  hit <Return> or click the logo.
  • Uses Safari’s powerful and fast WebKit rendering engine.
  • Check for new versions by clicking the version displayed on the back.
  • Operation can be canceled by clicking the spinner.

Public Beta of Data Vu Released

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Data Vu IconMy file-synchronization widget (Data Vu) is now officially released (1.4b). It allows you to synchronize the contents of two folders extremely quickly by copying only the differences between the two.

Imagine you are sharing files with a colleague via a USB thumb drive with over 1000 files and over 8GB. After giving the thumb drive to your partner, he only changes 2 of the files and returns the entire external drive back to you. Rather than re-copying the entire drive to your local folder and inefficiently replacing every file, you can use my Data Vu widget which is smart enough to realize that only 2 files needs to actually be copied.

It can save you a lot of time! Find out more…

Wallify Widget v1.2 Released

Monday, September 15th, 2008

I’ve released a new version of my Wallify widget. There have been some improvements in functionality but the main new features are that it now dynamically lists all the Screen Savers installed on your system (no more static lists). It also allows you to check for new versions via AJAX (at your request of course). And I even reduced the size of the widget! Full release notes.

I’ve added some more useful information in the FAQ and don’t forget that it still maintains the same best features:

  • Free!
  • Uses no third party applications.
  • Only uses stuff already built into the OS.
