Widget Machine today announced the availability of NotePad 2.0, a massive upgrade to their popular note-taking Dashboard widget. The update adds several popular user requests, including iPod syncing, two new types of pages (lists and sketches), three skins by IconFactory artist David Lanham, password locking to keep your notes from prying eyes, and custom font selection for the contents of your notes. In addition, 2.0 fixes a number of bugs and optimizes the notepad for more efficient use. NotePad requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and is priced at US$7.95.
