Mesa Dynamics today announced the release of Amnesty Singles for Mac OS X, a drag-and-drop utility that allows any Dashboard widget to run as a standalone application. Dropping a widget file onto the Amnesty Singles window results in a small Mac OS X application that will open outside of Dashboard when launched. Applications built with Amnesty Singles automatically include features important for running a widget continuously outside Dashboard, such as adjusting the window level (desktop, standard or floating) and setting an “auto refresh” timer (for widgets that are designed to refresh only when Dashboard is shown). Amnesty Singles requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is priced at US$9.95.
