Mobile widgets

Filed under: 80/20, mobile, user experience, widget — danielharris @ 3:17 pm

I’ve made a mobile widget of so that more and more people can access the wisdom of this crowd wherever they are!

You can download the widget engine onto most phones via, and provides quite a nice experience. igoogle or netvibes to go really. You can scroll around your set of widgets in order to find the one you want – an interface paradigm that’s becoming quite familiar what with google maps and multimap etc. but particularly useful for small screens.

Would be nice to see somemore non-RSS reader widgets available – and mobile widgets that function in a more contextual way to the how and where of the mobile experience

Find the frank and pat widget below:



  1. This is one of the easiest and most fun applications I’ve ever downloaded! Instant fan.

    Interesting to note that this came out of the Nokia Emerging Business Unit, and already has (little finger to edge of mouth) one million users, which is pretty impressive.
