I just wanted to let everyone here know that I’ve been working on a new Hamster app that you will be able to install to Chrome or Windows 8. It will have many more features and will be much more interactive than the current Hamster widget. You will be able to customize cages by adding tubing and other parts which I will reveal as I get closer to completion. I will be posting pictures here in the next few weeks and I’m hoping to release it sometime in Decemeber.
I added some new embed code to a lot of the widgets tonight that will work for people who host their blogs on WordPress.com.
The aBowman Dog is now available as a gadget on iGoogle. You can change the look of the dog here and then add the gadget to iGoogle by pressing the button below the customization form. Over the next few weeks, I will be adding some new features, optimizing the code and fixing bugs.
The update I applied today to the Groovy Fish Android app fixes the anti-aliasing issue users were experiencing on the Droid and Nexus One. Those users should no longer see distorted graphics (jagged edges on the fish and lily pads) after installing the update.
Some of you have probably already seen the Newton’s Cradle gadget. Just figured I would announce it here for those who subscribe to the blog.
It is currently available for iGoogle and Chumby. The Chumby version adds another dimension to the gadget, since it responds to tilting. I’ll be making it available to other sites soon.
Check out the new Hamster gadget.
I’ll be adding a Clearspring menu soon so that you can add it to sites other than iGoogle.
Over the past week, I’ve been adding new buttons under each of the gadgets that allow you to easily add the gadgets to MySpace or Blogger. Some of you may want to customize the gadget before adding it to your page. To do that, click the “edit settings” link and use the form to adjust the colors or to change other values. When you’re finished, click one of the “add to” buttons below the customized gadget to add it to your page.
