Building a listing and selecting Lotus Notes widgets I would use daily has been a trying process. I have added and deleted widgets to my Lotus Notes client on a regular basis. The other problem is that some of these actually call plug-ins to be installed but begin as widgets. These are in no order. Just a useable top 10. Some are not even fancy, but provide excellent function.
1. Gist - This is what I run daily beside my mailfile to see what information exists for you in the social networks coupled with my personal address book. From company profile, Twitter information, recent news, Facebook, picture and more, it is dynamically there by sender.
2. Tungle - If you wish to have a meeting with me, you can schedule online with a simple click. Tungle reads my local freetime database and combines it with my Google calendars to give a global freetime. I even place the web widget on my blog and run the Lotus Notes Widget in the client. Oh, and I just loaded the Blackberry version.
3. Plantronics - A new part of my Sametime voice (and all VOIP service) arsenal. It moves call control to the headset for a handsfree answer, hold and switch. Oh and hang up.
4. Recon Sidebar - from Julian Robichaux. This awesome administrator widget for Lotus Notes allows you to quickly work with remote server consoles. A must have.
5. SideLog - from Jeff Gilfelt. This allows the administrator to view the latest Domino server log events in reverse chronological order. Miscellaneous and Mail Routing are easily opened for quick troubleshooting. Couple that with my own QuickAdmin Smarticon code for administrative tasks and you hardly need the Administrator client open.
6. Wildfire - This has hooks to multiple social networks from one interface allowing you to easily update your status. For those that do not have a flow of status updates or want to do each individually, it is a great solution.
7. File Explorer - a sidebar view to explore and drag and drop files into the operating system. Open, rename and delete as well.
8. Widget Library - imagine a slew of widgets in one pack. From Flickr, Unyte, search ISBN, DeveloperWorks and Redbooks. And More!
9. Web Widgets - Widgets pointing to Google, YouTube and a mps3 player. Embeddable in XPage controls too
10. Lotus Learning Widget - a no brainer. Learn all about Lotus stuff in a widget. Instant access to videos, tutorials and more.
