    It would be really nice if you could PAUSE, and/or go back to words with a finger swipe. For definitions longer than a quick sentence its is impossible to complete before it changes.

    Can you please fix this widget? If you extend the time, it just restarts with all blank pages. It moves between words way too fast to read or re-read these new words and give no interaction ability, like going back to look at one, or pausing. I would say whomever wrote this widget was much more concerned with the artistic content than the functionality. I wonder if the creator even used it...

    Just display a word and its definition... not the silly finger pointing to someplace on a page (that is often blank). I'll try some rss feeds instead of this widget.

    Drat, my last comment was interpreted as valid HTML instead of what the "word of the day" is displaying. Démarche displays on my Chumby as D& eacute;marche (without the space).

    Sometimes shows no word at all, the finger just points at a blank spot on the page. Also, today's word (demarche) apparently has an accented character, but instead of showing the accent, it's showing what is probably the HTML code for an accented character (démarche).

    I'd like to be able to pick only to show the current day's word. It seems that the widget takes it off the screen to show yesterday's word... which I saw yesterday. Please give me the option to only have the word of the DAY up there... as the widget name would imply. Or change the widget name to "Words of the Days".
