When Apple debuted the highly praised OS X, one of the inclusions was Dashboard, a utility that allows users to develop widgets to increase the functionality of their computing experience.

Since its launch, there have been many Dashboard widgets released, and some of them have been developed to increase the usability of Google and its services. One such widget, GPeek (pointed out by the Unofficial Google Blog), allows users to check their Gmail account for incoming messages from the comfort of their desktop.

According to the developer’s description, GPeek features the following:

  • Multiple instances so you can check multiple accounts
  • Three modes to suite all your moods: mini, long and full
  • Subject, sender, time and summary info for all new mail
  • Slick interface with intuitive controls
  • Check your account:
  • by time – every minute; once a day; whatever you’d like
    by event – only checks when you check dashboard
    manually – for those that fear automation

  • Easy access to Gmail – it will automatically log you into your account!
  • Auto-checks to ensure you have the latest version of GPeek
  • Lots of fancy DHTML goodness
  • Handy preferences so you can get it to work just the way you want
  • Integrated picture of the day
  • To ensure account information safety, the developer also ensured all communications between the widget and GMail was doing via a secure SSL connection. Passwords are also encrypted.

      Pretty neat widget. I also like the fact that if you have your gmail open the page will still refresh every few minutes and will update you when a new message arrives. Something that some mail services still don’t do.
