So there are those times you wish you could have a cool handy service on standby without logging into the website. Pandora is one of those services I use. I don’t use it often enough to pay for Pandora One although I am considering it just because I’d like to have more “skips”.
If you’ve ever wanted to have the “widget” feature without forking over the dough however, then watch the video I put together below for an example of how to make a custom widget. This process can also be used to really use any kind of web service and post it to your Mac OS X dashboard.
