Update: TPG Usage Widget

This version introduces two new features:

  • Click on the current usage value to see the current target
  • Notification if there’s a new version available on the back of the widget

Download TPG Usage Widget for OSX (version 1.8, 92kb)

It’s also now available from the Apple Dashboard Widgets site

3 updates in one week! Maybe I should stay off the booze more often 😉

That said, this version clears out all the todos I had on my list for this widget. So unless there’s any bugs, I don’t anticipate any new versions for a while, but let me know if there are any problems.

    Hey Paul, Can you make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version (1.10) from http://www.3thirty.net/blog/?p=31 and let me know how you go with that?

    Hello Ethan,
    Yes i have the latest version and i’m still getting the same message ‘Error reading….’. i have also tried it at work on an imac running 10.54 with the same error message. i also followed your instructions on ‘Enabling diagnostics in tpg Widget’ to no avail. Is there some secret with the log in that i am missing (i presume it is the same as logging onto to my tpg account online)?
    Please help.

    Apple OSX widget meter was working fine up until a couple days ago, then I got an error reading asking if login details are correct- re-entered my login details , yet still get the same error, has something changed or do I need to do something else?

    Hey Frank,

    Looks like TPG have changed their site a little bit, and it’s confusing the widget.

    I should be able to get an update to fix this shortly.

    Hey Frank,

    Updated version of the widget is on the main page now. Should be working fine for you now 🙂

    I’m getting the “error reading asking if login details are correct”
    Have tpg changed something in the last month to cause this?
