Beautiful Word Clouds for iPad and iPhone


GAget Puts Beautiful Google Analytics on Your Dashboard

What comes in linen and shows off really pretty graphs for your website? We're talking about Zoltan Hosszu's GAget of course, a Dashboard widget you might actually be interested in downloading. Not only is the website beautiful, but the widget is super handy as well. Right on your Dashboard, you can get analytics that feels like it was designed by Apple themselves with the fit and finish of OS X Lion while presenting lots of useful information like the day's page views, your unique visitors compared to total visitors, new visitors to the site, your bounce rate, and a handy graph which can show you how well you're doing today compared to the last two weeks. We need more Dashboard widgets like this — GAget is terrific in design, and the developer put in a lot of love for an area of OS X that many don't pay enough attention to. If you're a web developer or a website owner and want to be able to glance at your website statistics, I totally recommend installing this (it supports multiple profiles too). And as always, you can donate to the developer if you find this free extension to your Dashboard super useful (there's a PayPal button at the bottom of the page).

You can download the GAget at http://www.zoltanhosszu.com/gaget/, and you can follow the developer on Twitter at @zoltanhosszu.
