    Default Widgets on iPhone?!
    Erica Sadun has posted a neat little guide on TUAW about getting widgets to work on the iPhone!



    You basically have to install the System/Library/WidgetResources folder from your Mac onto your iPhone (into the same place), and then pop the widgets themselves into /var/root/Library/Widgets in the iPhone.

    Then use the attached Widget.app to access them!

    works alright for now but great ideas are already being made...lol

    I have a great idea so we need to figure it out...

    the itunes control widget actually runs good but since it cant find itunes it cant control it... it would be awesome if we can figure out a way to sent the commands through wifi to our computers! Make it work and your god!

    Absolutely fantastic! There are so many cool dashboard widgets out there that would be great additions for the iPhone.

    Springboard is going to fill up FAST now...

    I followed these instructions.. then installed the dictionary widget from my computer into the folder.. but have nothing. Should it have an icon on the SB?
