BBC Listen Live OSX widget…

We’ve been developing a prototype widget for Macs running OSX at work as an experiment with network-enabled applications. It’s allows you to listen to BBC national radio stations on your desktop computer as if it had a built-in radio (although you do need RealPlayer installed). It’s a pretty nice – simple – piece of work and I’m quite proud of it. Kudos here goes mainly to Duncan Ponting who did the heavy lifting, with me doing the pretty pictures and UI work (and with contributions along the way from Mr Biddulph and Mr Hammond among others). This is what it looks like:

And here is where you can get it: BBC Listen Live Widget. We’d love to get your feedback and thoughts around this area – so we’ve put up a feedback box to collect it. Make sure you use it!
