Please keep the widget suggestions coming, even thought iSlayer (and Dicko and myself) have a few more to do.

Would you mind acknowledging whether White & Yellow Pages widgets are a possibility?

eBay Australia would also be nice (and eBay US)

I'm sure they are.

It'd be a lot of work though (if it was to display the results in the wdiget).

When I saw it on your site I grabbed it instantly!
Great idea!

(I actually put it where I had Red Carpet widget).

I'm still hopeful that Canberra gets added to AusTV widget as it looks great - and I'd love to be able to use it!

You should display the download volume :)

Out of interest - when are you launching the rest of your site and the new forum :P

ill have some more of my site up this weekend.ill get a gallery of screenshots for each widget to start with and a bug tracker i think

my next widget will hopefully be out tomorrow but you guys will love it.
if i get it done right it will quickly become one of the most popular widgets around for sure.

Hi islayer.

Great widgets! I use AusTV all the time now with my EyeTV, they have become joined at the hip.

I was wondering if you could do a widget that could post the DVD release dates of Madman.

The have a list on there main page, seeing I have no idea on programing I have no idea how easy, hard or act of god it would be to get the data into a widget.

They have there release titles/dates on the following…

http://www.madman.com.au/news.php

Good luck & thanks for making widgets with local Australian content!
