58-9 is not a widget app. and it should not be compared to it. ... by the way, I do not understand your creativity rating.
Anyway, more new feature will be there in my next update of 59-8.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I think this program is quite neat. It's functionality very clearly makes it a better widget than an app. An excellent widget that has earned a spot on my dashboard. smiley

Great app, but a one thing:

It might be nice if when, say, Uzbekistan is pulled up, nearby countries' borders (and identities) could be displayed (optionally)?

It might be cool to have it minimized when there isn't a country selected, instead of that head graphic. Than at least it'll take up less dashboard space when not in use.

Great widget though!

hihagen, it looks like Grey gave you one star for creativity because this widget is a "Knockoff of that app 59-8." Of course, he didn't bother to research that. Because, if he did, he would have seen that you are also the developer of 59-8. ::sigh:: Another misguided review.

i like the widget, but could it be possible to show the other country borders next to the selected countrey and maybe organize them by continent?

Some of the countries are obscured by the text making their maps useless.

why not organize the countries by continent?
why doesn't the menu show the country that's currently selected? (in the old version, it always said "Afghanistan." in the new version it says "Select Country."

New features - cool, but:
There should be a button on the search panel to go back to browse mode.
Same for the photos and information.
There is a standard Aqua scroller on the info panel. Always use custom widget controls.*
There is advertising on the photos.*
The flags are a bit too small.
