View Full Version : Australian Skiing Widget Request

12th May 2005, 08:23 PM
Here is a completely pie-in-the-sky widget request, that would make a lot of skiers happy.

I'd love a widget that can display all the ski.com.au snowcams. My idea of the basic layout would be a drop down menu on the back of the widget to select which resort you are after, then tabs on the front of the widget to switch between your chosen resort's individual cams.

Right now I have about 6 individual SlothCam widgets open on Dashboard, but they hog RAM, and screen real estate. Also it is a fixed size & scales the pictures it receives.

That is my basic request.

To further enhance it it would be great to grab relevant weather maps, live AWS data & forecasts from the BOM & also the snow reports.

Any takers?

hmm I would love something like this, but instead of it showing snowcams, it displayed the actual cm's of snow on the trails. This is less eye-candy, but more actual usable info for avid skiiers. :)

Is anyone willing to step up to the challenge? :D
