Weather & Traffic - Houston Traffic

Description: FLIP!
Yes, we have a backside! Flip over the widget to turn on its coolest new features.

The zoom feature is easy. Just use the magically-appearing + and - buttons in the lower left-hand corner.

The pan feature is also easy. Just click and drag the map! The map slides around within the widget, so there are no messy scroll bars.

Once you get things the way you like 'em, flip the widget over and turn off zooming and panning. Now you can click anywhere on the widget to reposition it on your desktop without disturbing your map! (You can also drag the borders to move the widget with panning enabled).

You'll find the large, high-resolution map offers you better detail and more information than smaller overview-only widgets. Plus, did I mention you can pan and zoom?

Houston Traffic 1.0 saves your map's size and position, so your map will be right where you want it every time.

See at a glance what the swirling colors mean with the speedometer on the back. It's as bad as you ever imagined!

Thanks. That's precisely what I had in mind when I put this together. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement, and how you think it could be made more useful. I'm already working on the next revision.
