I am somewhat a newbie in OS X, and I just discovered the dashboard and amount of widgets I can download to it. And my tow questions are:

  1. Is there a "iTunes widget" that plays music and controls it from the dashboard rather having an open program?
  2. Can I program one? Is that OK with apple's guidelines\policy? (Or at least tell me where to look to get the answer to that)

Edit

The reason I want that is because I have quite a bit of open programs in the doc. And I want to get rid of the iTunes, because it is really just there to play music, and I barely click on it.

So is your real problem that you want to hide iTunes from the dock? –  slhck Dec 28 '12 at 8:56
    
Yes it is, and these are charters so I can post the comment. –  Martin Dec 28 '12 at 9:27

See here: How do you hide the Finder from the list of applications when Command-Tabbing? – should work the same for iTunes. –  slhck Dec 28 '12 at 9:29
    
Thanks, that will do the trick together with the widget suggested by aliasgar –  Martin Dec 28 '12 at 15:45
