    Widsets - Mobilize Your Web (Widgets App)

    Advertisement



    This is my First Time seeing this application and Its pretty cool for a Beta.

    Mobile Widget Application.
    You can add some of the over 1,000 widgets they have or you can make your own!

    Check out their website:
    http://www.widsets.com

    I have only tried using this on the Blackberry 8800.
    Although it will most likely run on most 4.1 and higher BB's

    The only download link that worked for me was this OTA one:
    http://get.widsets.com/new.html

    Once downloaded if you use it in "light" mode it runs smoother, to change it to light mode while in the program go Options>Client>settings>change mode to light.

    On the 8800 the buttons to run the application are:
    Q= options(or anything on the left side of the toolbar)
    P= Right Side of the toolbar
    Enter(lower right key)= Instead of using the trackball as pushing it does not select what you have highlighted.

    Re: Widsets - Mobilize Your Web (Widgets App)

    This is what I get from the website: "WidSets is a very simple and yet clever little service that brings information that you normally have access to over the Internet, directly to your cell phone. It uses mini-applications called widgets that keep an eye out on updates to websites you normally visit several times a day. This is done through RSS feeds, which push information from these websites directly to your cell phone whenever they are updated. Whenever the information on the website of your choice, lets say a news service, a blog or a weather forecast is updated, the widget alerts you about it and you can view the information right away, regardless of where you are."

    It sounds like the widgets alert you to new info, unlike having to go into Piconews or the like for your information. Not sure tho since I haven't tried this yet.

    I used this on a few different handsets back in the past and I wasn't impressed.

    i havent tried this Widsets app yet for my phone,...i dont know if i will after reading some of the replies about the app already... but if you were interested in widgets on your windows/mac computer though, http://widgets.yahoo.com they have thousands of free widgets that i really like using on my desktop on my laptop.

    here is a print screen of yahoo widgets for your computer desktop.


    i love it, you should try it out too!

    I have deleted this application. It wasn't "horrible." The UI was clever and it works as advertised. But..
    It was slow, sometimes painfully slow.
    There really weren't a lot of great "widsets." The engadget mobile widset was kinda cool, but by the time it loaded I could have easily taken Opera Mini, or even my BB browser there.

    If they had a Pinstack widset that worked well.....I'd download again.
