    List your favorite Widgets for use in the notification center..

    Here are mine!

    1) Weather
    2) Yahoo Sports (easily customized for your favorite sports teams)
    3) Deliveries (I've used this for years on the dashboard and now it's available as a notification widget!)
    4) Calendar

    There are not many available right now but I'd love to see more...

    I didn't know Reddit had one as I don't see it in the Mac App store. Can it be downloaded from Reddit?

    I use Delivery Status, but that's about it for third party widgets. I do use sticky notes now and again. However, I've started to use Google Keep for that stuff.

    I was using Slice but it has no widget. Delivery status would be a great alternative for package tracking. Thanks for the link.

    There is an app in the App Store for Reddit called Alien Blue. That is the one you want.

    Did you mean Delivery Status? I'm not seeing a widget for it.


    I've been using it for years as well. It's one of my favorite apps.
    The last update I see is September 18th and I don't have a widget option. Maybe I'll try reinstalling it.

    It's listed as Deliveries in store but it's the same as Delivery Status from June Cloud..

    I'm not sure why they changed the name.. I also use it on my iPhone.

    Yeah, that's the one I use. No option for an iOS widget here.

    Edit: Just realized you and Chris are talking about a Mac widget. I didn't initially notice what subforum this was in.

    I tried to edit the topic title to say "List your favorite Mac notification widgets" but I can't.. Can you do this?

    Thanks in advance!
