An independent UK developer has produced a travel information widget for Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger".

The widget lets its users see travel problems on a regional basis, or by mode of transport. The list is sorted by severity and can be filtered, so the most important travel news is at the top.

The widget picks up travel information for most of the UK.

Developer Ashley Howes explains: "This widget was born out of frustration with travel delays in the UK. Now, there is a quick and easy way to help solve that problem. My widget uses data supplied from"

The widget's background colour changes to reflect which feed is selected: green (roads), blue (motorways), black (train), dark blue (underground), dark yellow (ferries) and grey (airline).
