offtype.net Art widget (Goog Gadget)

offtype.net has taken their online art creator software and created offtype.net Google gadget. Sweet!

This is cool!
1. registration: There is no registration! Sweet!
2. Use: There is no need for instructions, it’s that easy to use.
3. Hosting: The art that you create and save is hosted by offtype.net so you can display it anywhere.

This is OK!
1. Features: One feature from the original offtype.net online art program is missing in the widget (fine tune color selector)
2. Google: Google gadgets are cool but at times I think too limited in customizations.
3. Code: This widget uses Javascript. Only certain blog hosts allow Javascript. (sorry MySpace users)

This is a bummer!
1. Customizations: Having width and height options that result in scroll bars on a widget is pointless. Especially with this widget. This is a Google Gadget fault, not offtype.net
2.Brush options: I wish there were more brush options such as square, star, triangle etc…
3. Help: There is no help page of FAQ page for the noobies out there. Either on the Gadget page or offtype.net

Overall
I love this widget. I had found one earlier but it was on a Japanese page and my Japanese is very rusty. The best feature of this widget is the save and host free option. So simple, almost too simple. Enjoy!

offtype.net also has a version of their art program for download and installation. It offers the same great free hosting.
