Have you heard of the Walmart Ice Cream widget?

January 22nd, 2010

Walmart has an Ice Cream Social widget that allows you to plan an entire party geared towards an Ice Cream Social.

You’re probably thinking “Who cares…its cold outside!” and that’s true. However, it won’t always be cold and an ice cream social can be a fun time.

The widget:

This widget offers far more functionality and usefulness than the average widget. You can search for creative, ice cream related recipes…and print them in recipe card sizes or even full page format.

Create an invitation for your guests via evite.com and start this process right in the widget.

You can see a weather forecast based on your zip code. Knowing what the weather is going to be like can make or break a party.

There is even a shopping list feature where you can create and print out your shopping requirements for the party.

The shopping list feature also offers the ability to email or SMS text a list to guests telling them to bring something to share. (Only 160 characters permitted)

Where can I put this widget? Just about anywhere…here’s the list.

Conclusion:
This is really a feature rich widget. I would like to see more brands offer functionality such as this.

Growing baby widget from babyzone.com

May 28th, 2008

Expecting parents can easily track the growth progress of their baby

babyzone.com has created a widget that allows you to track the growth of your unborn babies and also babies that have arrived. The widget also includes a button that links to detailed information about every specific stage of your baby’s development. Also included are tips on improving yours and the baby’s experience.
babyzone appears to be a great resource

some details:
The web version of this widget uses Flash programing. This is great because most blogs and customizable social pages allow embeds that use Flash.
babyzone.com indicates that there is a desktop version of this widget but they require you to sign up with email and a password just to get the widget.

babyzone.com says:
