You probably remember when themuzz released his streaming widget which was the first third party widget and then hrhnick released his MySpace widget as only the second third party widget. Both times we hoped that developers would extract the contents of the widgets to understand how they work and then use that to make their own widgets…and that didn’t happen. So we stepped in and we’re providing 50 Widgets today! So this can be your programs list:)

Widgets 3 Widgets 1 Widgets 2 Screen01

These are not complex widgets. In fact, they’re among the most simplistic widgets that can be made but they do provide a ‘chromeless’ experience that have the feel of apps (and they install like apps). They do require an internet connection when in use (since they are grabbing data from the web) but I think the end experience is still a good one. If you enter your information it is remembered so on the weather widget, for example, it will remember your location. And more than anything, the goal is to bring widgets to the attention of more developers so more complex widgets can start to be released.

Enough background, let’s get to the widgets:

Just to keep some order to 50 widgets let’s start with our own websites:

Alright, we’re getting somewhere now:) Let’s move on to a bunch of our friends. The goal was to help the WM community so we invited the Windows Mobile community and here are some widgets we created for a lot of the sites that we share content with (oh and we did reach out to a lot of other sites that are also our friends, but they didn’t respond – the invites are still open to anyone who wants a widget though). Let’s do this in alphabetical order:

OK, not bad for a day’s work:) We’ll get into how to make widgets later (sorry, getting through 50 of these things is really a killer). For now, get to downloading and we hope you enjoy them. Thanks of course to the sites on the top portions that are our friends and family and provided icons to use, to themuzz and hrhnick for setting the stage (and hrhnick for his guidance), bluemetalaxe (I used a few of his icons cause they’re sick), Mobile Matt for testing and creation and of course to Anudeep for testing all of these and providing the screenshots.

Remember, this is only for people who are already using WM 6.5 (or if you want to be really prepared for the official release this can be your starting point:)). There’s a cab in the download that you will need to install prior to installing the widgets and once installed you should have no problems installing widgets just like apps. The download is only 650k and includes all of the widgets but you can chose which ones to install.
