One of the problems that widget developers are facing is to decide what will be their next widget. Sometimes you will see an idea or a need come up on the Captivate Forums. A developer might decide to take on the task and create the widget. He will then either give it back to the community for free and charge a small fee for it. I just saw such a need a few days ago for a Youtube widget that would work in Cp5 and decided to give a kick at the can.
Tristan at www.infosemantics.com.au started a while ago a nice initiative to complement the Adobe Exchange. He created The widget Treasury that displays the different widgets created by developers just like me. However, this made me think that there are no real places where the community could post their suggestions for widgets and vote for it.
As such, I decided to give this a try. I created a page on my blog and installed a small plug-in to keep track of the votes. So, if you would like to voice your ideas about widgets, access the Wish List page and add a comment describing the widget you would like to see created. However, read the other suggestions first to see if another reader has already proposed the same widget. If the widget was proposed, then simply vote for it! The more votes a widget will have, the more chances you have that a developer will step up to the challenge!
So, go to the Wish List page and vote now!
