Some of you may have seen my earlier post regarding this.


I've now made it available for general release.


The widget can be used to check your account balance and current goodybag.  It also shows the latest blog posts, forum posts and ideas.


The widget can be downloaded from:


Mac OS X v.10.4.3 or newer is required. If you're using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, the widget installer appears. Click Install if you want the widget installed on your Mac. If you're using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive and open it to show the widget installer.


Those who took part in the beta should update to the version linked above.


I will continue to work on this and add fixes/improvements where necessary.  Feedback is welcomed.

Looks great. A confusing bit was that I got my password incorrect the first time but after correcting it I kept getting a message saying it was incorrect; after resetting my password via and then trying again and seeing the same I thought it was a bug, but I waited a few moments and it then updated.
Maybe once changing the credentials the message could change to authenticating or something suitable to prevent confusion.

Yes.  It's very rare that this happens and is due to delays at the giffgaff end.  The next version will show a notification to clear up this confusion.


Thanks for your input.

Is there a possibility of the widget showing which goodybag you currently have active?

Do you know if there is any other way to get hold of this? I have been looking for another way to find out credit etc. and this came up in the search, however, doesn't seem like a very old topic.
