With OS X Yosemite, Apple introduced widgets for Notification Center. And what a fantastic idea. It basically kills the dashboard, which was pretty much useless. Personally, before Yosemite, I was using the dashboard only to track packages via Deliveries. But now, Deliveries is available on the Mac App Store and guess what? It comes with a widget.
Now all you have to do is wait for developers to update their apps to include widgets or wait for new apps to come out. One of the apps that takes advantage of Yosemite’s NC, is iStat Mini . It costs $1.99 and everybody is going nuts over it. Personally, I think it’s just hype. Basically the app, it’s a stripped down version of iStat Menu and places a widget in NC that shows you CPU, memory, and disk usage. And that’s it.
Well how about doing that for free? May not be as pretty as iStat Mini but… basically you can create and add any widget you can think of in NC this way.
