As part of the Widgets Live conference this week, we announced a partnership with our friends at Widgetbox, the online directory and development site for web widgets. Widgetbox has supported the TypePad Widget API since the day they launched the service, which means that any Widget you find on Widgetbox you can install on TypePad.
As part of working together, we've syndicated their featured and new widget listings into the sidebar of our own Widget Gallery. (We used their Widgets, of course, to make this happen.) In short, if you're looking for a Widget you can't find in our gallery, check out Widgetbox, since they make it easy to add their Widgets to your TypePad blog.
In other Widget news, we recently added a few new items to our own gallery...
- The ThisNext.com widget enables you to share product recommendations with your blog readers
- The MeeVee "What I'm Watching" widget lets you share what television shows you're watching through their online guide.
- Evoca's Browser Mic widget enables any of your blog's readers with a computer mic to leave you a voice recording which you then can decide to post to your blog.
- The Feed Crier IM Subscription widget allows readers to subscribe to instant messaging alerts from your blog.
We're always working with new partners, and have more great Widgets in the works. If you're interested in developing your own Widgets (it's easy!) then check out our TypePad Widget Developers guide.
