When Twitter And Gaming Collide

Written by on May 9, 2009 under Games, News, Twitter, Widgets

One of the main goals of widgets is to make various platforms accessible to users. Widgets bring together these platforms, making it much easier to share information with other people. And this is exactly what PlayXpert had in mind when they came up with the idea of the PlayXpert Twitter Widget.

CNET reports:

Combining two of the most addictive things about the online universe—Twitter and World of Warcraft—seems like a good way to bring productivity in the Western world to a screeching halt.

If that happens, you can blame PlayXpert, a maker of various in-game widgets for PC gamers. The company today announced the PlayXpert Twitter Widget, adding Twitter functionality to the existing PlayXpert software, which works with WoW and other online PC games.

In-game widget engines such as PlayXpert (which bills itself as an “in-game operating system”) run alongside PC games, offering voice chat, Web browsing, and other tools for players, without the need to quit or ATL+TAB out of the game to launch another app (popular examples include Xfire and Steam).

“A screeching halt” is but an understatement, I think. Having personal experience with both Twitter and World of Warcraft, I am pretty sure that a large number of people will get hooked even more. And you know what the best thing about this new widget is? You can download it for free – along with other widgets – at PlayXpert’s web site.

I can now see critics (of spending too much time playing games) shaking their heads right now.

Wowzio For the Blogger’s Edge

Wowzio

One thing that provides edge towards blogs these days is the proper selection of widgets to use on their site. There are millions of widgets available online these days and apparently it all depends on which widget element is truly fitting for blogs that aim to give better projection and easier navigation.

Widgets are a blogger’s friend when it comes to making their site more appealing. Ranging from simple to complex widgets, it all boils down on how these widgets can be able to entertain and assist visitors on the site.

These include a Gallery Widget that automatically finds all the pictures on your blog and then builds a photo gallery using them. In addition to that, each photo title links to the relevant post. The advantages of such a widget are evident. Not only does it entail a new discovery mechanism for readers to use, it also makes for simple syndication of your photos and increased online distribution.


Other widgets that merit a mention include a Panoramic Slideshow Widget and a Live Activity Widget that displays a list of the latest visitors to your blog in real time. This includes useful information such as what specific post they are reading and where they came from.

So if you want to check out new widgets in the market, check out Wowzio. This site may contain the much longed for widgets you are looking for.

Cases of Missing Applications on Facebook

Written by on October 31, 2008 under Facebook, Games

One thing about Facebook is that you can never get too much of one application. Thanks to the developers, the preference of applications to use has become rampant and from all indications, you may find yourself loaded with application widgets which you can also bookmark thanks to their new bottom sidebar.

But the sidebar can only carry so much, 5 applications at the most. At some point, you may have to ignore some applications since it cannot carry the load. Add to the fact that too much applications may become a load on your browsing, a prime reason perhaps as to why there are connection glitches at times. You can just call yourself unlucky if you are in the middle of a game application like Wrestler and then all hell breaks loose.

Another thing that may perhaps capture the ire of most Facebook subscribers is that of the ever changing face of applications and that of Facebook’s main page. While constant change for improvement is a given, it can also be annoying. Rearranging the initial setup can be totally discerning and while you want to air your side on this matter, you just have to consider the fact that it is all for easier interface.

So if in case you are missing some applications, take a second look. They are most probably around but you seem to have overlooked them due to new designs and setups. It is a pain at first but just like your first sign-up with Facebook, it is all about getting used to it.

Widget Games for Site Entertainment

Written by on August 25, 2008 under Games, Software

If you are a constant follower of the classic games such as Super Mario, then you can rekindle those old times through widgets. Yes you can download and even install them at your site, playing the same way that you did with your old Family Computer. But don’t expect the resolution to be as clear as the ones you have on television though. Widgets still have some shortcomings and apparently considerations such as connection speed still play a vital role in determining how well you can access games through widgets.

Now aside from the famed Super Mario game from Nintendo, you are bound to see a whole lot more of game widgets. You can download these widgets and install it at your site and before you know it, a lot of visitors may be frequenting your site to play the eternal popular game that had them glued to their TV sets.

However, just be sure your bandwidth can handle it. One thing about websites, if they are slow to refresh, visitors may not wait until the whole page shows. Among them would include the widget which eventually becomes part of the website once you install it.

That is perhaps the downside of using too much widgets on your site as optimization issues may arise. It would be advisable to check it out first and see if it does have an impact. If so, better pass it up and just play it from the site where you got it or refer visitors to it. A good deed for you by any means.
