Counters - Download Tally

Description: Ever wanted a quick way to check how many times your widget has been downloaded? Behold. Simply enter the DashboardWidgets ID number (from the URL for the widget's page) and this widget tells you the current version number and the number of downloads, both for the latest version and for all versions.

Wow.

You can even have multiple copies open and track how popular all your widgets are.

This widget was brought to you by the friendly chaps at Mindre Panda.

Now, can this be extended to track multiple sites? I have listings with HandyWigets, DashboardExposed, WidgetDeveloper, DashboardShare, VersionTracker, and Apple. I am waiting on Tucows, MacUpdate, and macprime.ch.

I guess it could. I did look at Apple as a lot of the Peep widget downloads came via them and there seemed to be no easy way to extract the information from their site. I'll look into the others though.

We are also considering using the large empty space on the right side for an image of the widget if that is a feature people would be interested in.

I think a name would be better.

The name of the widget you are tracking appears on the top, the example pictured is tracking itself.

it seems that the widget doesn't save the widget id's ... has anyone the same problem?
