I agree with Da Vinci. First, the widget should be MUCH smaller. I think the maximum reasonable size for a widget is 350x350, and a good size is about 280x280. Aim for something near that. You shouldn't have too much trouble putting the same amount of functionality in that area, as everything is much bigger than it needs to be at the moment.

The interface is easy to fix- I might even redo it if I get the chance, after it's made smaller.

Nice widget. Yes, it's too big, but thanks to you, we actually have a card game for OS X now.

I must say that I don't keep large widgets active, but SeeSS is my model. Make it shrink to a pellet when the user doesn't want to use it, and all is well.

It's been a long time since I saw this many games in one package, so this is cool.

The only two things I'd like to see added to really make this a great widget:

I think its about as small as is reasonable to have a functional playing surface (Its hard to make out some of the cards on those of us w/ smaller screens), so a minimized pellet would be great (think a la SayCheese widget).

I'd also be great to be able to clear my score for those bad runs of spider solitaire.

Otherwise - great job - I've missed my solitaire since I switched.

With this widget, you have finally ended my need for Windows! Thanks!

agreed, it is too big. Also, tooltips on all the cards are unnecessary and love to linger after I close to the dashboard.
This version barfs all over itself if I try to do anything while it's doing the card animations, the only solution for which is rebooting the entire widget.
Fix those problems, and this is the perfect solitaire widget!
