8GadgetPack 12.0.0

Seamlessly integrates Windows 7 gadgets into Windows 8, and offers users a list of 49 stable tools to choose for their desktop screen
8GadgetPack brings back Windows 7 gadgets to Windows 8. It contains a collection of 49 popular widgets and creates a sidebar on your desktop.

Aside from the Windows 7 sidebar where you can easily organize and access active windows, you can write notes, to-do lists and appointments in an agenda with a calendar, access a separate calendar, as well as create a panel for launching apps, opening files/folders and visiting URLs.

In addition, you can check out the weather forecast via "Chameleon Weather", monitor Clipboard contents and re-use previous clips, view analog clocks with different time zones, trigger power management actions, keep an eye on CPU and RAM usage, convert currencies, customize a calendar, use a feed reader, and schedule alarm clocks.

Other gadgets in the pack include drive diagnostics and monitoring tools, a Google search bar and Gmail launcher, GPU and network meters, radio stations, battery status monitoring, Recycle Bin, sticky notes, slide shows, Tweeter, YouTube viewer, and volume control, among others.

8GadgetPack flawlessly integrates into Windows 8 without causing any issues. It has a good reaction speed, delivers accurate information, and uses a low amount of CPU and RAM. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. To sum it up, 8GadgetPack brings good news to all users who upgraded to Windows 8 but have missed Windows 7 gadgets.
