How do I make desktop widget?
Start the wizard and follow two steps to create a desktop widget. You´ll need a web widget in order to convert it to desktop. In the first step you´ll be asked for a web widget code, size, name, description, and category. You´ll be able to add your own icon and submit a widget thumbnail. In the last step you´ll be asked to provide information to access the Dashboard including your name, e-mail, and password.

Where I can get a web widget?
Three ways: you can create a web widget from scratch, use any web service that allows web widget creation, or ask us for help.

What is the size of the widget?
The size of your widget highly depends on your content. It can be 300Kb or 1 Mb. Widgets for Mac are smaller than for Windows.

What platforms supported?
Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000. Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, 10.4.

What content I can include in widget?
You can use plain HTML code (or part of your website) for your widget. You can use also JavaScript, AJAX, and Flash.

What the difference between these widgets and Sidebar widget?
Sidebar widgets requires Sidebar to be installed. Not all of your users use Sidebar. The main difference for you is that Sidebar usually includes many widgets, and your widget will share user attention with other widgets. Desktopify builds stand-alone widgets.

I have a website and I want a desktop widget
You can just place code of your website block (for example, a site search, news block, etc.). You can write us for help if you´re unsure what exactly you want to build.

What is Desktop Alerts?
Using the Dashboard you can send alerts to your widget. Just create an alert and your users will receive it in a pop-up window on their desktops.

How I can track widget usage?
The Dashboard gives you statistics on installs, uninstalls, downloads.

What is the Dashboard?
Dashboard is your account - you can log in any time to edit your widgets, get statistics, and send alerts.

How will my users know that I changed my widget?
Your widget automatically checks for updates. If your has changed it will be update automatically. The user does not have to do anything.

How much does it cost?
It´s free.

Do you contact my users or send them ads?
No, we don´t contact your users in any way. Nor do we provide their personal data to any third-party.

How do you profit?
We place a search box near your widget. Every time a user searches and click ads on the search page we get paid from the search engine. This doesn´t disturb your users, and provides them useful feature: they can search right from desktop.

Can I get rid of this search box?
Yes, we can remove this box. Please
contact sales.
