editor's review




The Widget Vault is a fun piece of software which aims to offer you access to the newest Yahoo! widgets, allowing you to preview them and view a description of their functioning, prior to downloading them to your system.

Functioning prerequisites

Keep in mind that the utility requires you to have Yahoo! Widget Engine installed on your computer in order for you to be able to use it.

It resorts to two RSS feeds from popular online widget sources, which means you need to be connected to the Internet to be able to benefit from it.

Adorned steampunk interface

After going through the quick installation procedure, The Widget Vault will launch and allow you to view a list of app categories, displaying a menu when clicked to show you the available items.

The tool offers a steampunk interface, featuring a set of moving cogs and wheels, and holding your mouse click on the rim of the window enables you to learn which are the functions of each element in the design.

Find your widget and save it to your PC

While The Widget Vault comes with two built-in RSS feeds, you also have the option of adding your own, so you can have access to multiple sources with a simple button press. A brass slider is meant to toggle between the various feeds, providing you with new information from each one.

The widget categories that you can access are ‘App Enhancer’, ‘Cam Viewers’, ‘Date and Time’, ‘Geek Stuff’, ‘News Feeds’, ‘Sight and Sound’, ‘System Utilities’, ‘Various’ and ‘Widget Tools’, allowing you to list the items from each group in a menu.

After selecting an option from the menu, The Widget Vault will display an image and a description if any are available, enabling you to determine if you are interested in it, then double-click on it to save it to your PC.

Handy widget grabber

To conclude, The Widget Vault is designed to work as a download manager, letting you keep informed concerning the latest tools, helping you grab and install them on your computer in just a few moves.
