As the title says i want to know which of the 6 choices you want first.

My personal preference is the yellow pages Or Mac database widget's but if there is demand for one of the others i can do that first.

If you want one that is not listed let me know and i can tell you if its possible or not.

i should add a few things.

Yellow Pages will search by postcode and Name only in release one.
Its a big job so i will do it in stages and ad more advanced searching in later releases.
Its the same for White Pages more or less.


I will start work on the Most popular request tonight or tomorrow so vote now

I voted white pages.

iSlayer... I'm assuming the ASX widget would be different to the one that's already been done?

it would show the results inside the widget instead of just opening them in safari.

Whitepages is leading and i dont mind that.its probably the easiest one to make

im happy to do it and its the top item on my list but i have 1 problem.
i havent got much data for testing.
im on a unlimted plan so i cant test things very well.
i need data from an account that has gone over the usage limit
i have built the basic structure for the widget i just have to add advanced stuff to it.

tell me what features you want in the internode widget.

Do you have a catalog of your widget ideas that describe basic function, potential, and who might need/use them?

No, there's no catalogue.

The ideas are spread all over the AT forums. If an idea sticks, then it usually gets developed within 2 weeks. :)

I voted for the whereis widget, as that is a site i use quite often!

Would be good to have once i get my Mac.

I voted for WhereIs but it would need to include directions from/to an address and the ability to print the map & instructions

On 2nd thoughts its probably easier just from the web site so my 2nd choice is:

White Pages :)

This Guy (http://stephenwithers.com/) has written scripts which work with Address book to show you the location and/or directions to/from locations. Unforntunately, doesnt appear to work with Tiger address book... Tho, they could be used as a basis for a whereis widget,,
