Sneak Peek

What's been going on behind the scenes at zoomshare recently? Well lots of things. Yes, even with a wedding and a honeymoon, I've been putting in a few hours of work and well, I'm happy to say a new widget will be on its way in a few days.

You'll recall that there are currently three Zoomshare Widgets for use; Flipbook, YouTube and Google Video. At the time I promised more widgets to come and the first of those new widgets is getting ready to spring to life. (By the way, if your curious, as of this writing the YouTube widget is the most popular widget of the original three, followed by Flipbook and Google Video.)

What you maybe wondering is this new Zoomshare Widget? Well its a feed aggregator. With it a zoomshare user can collect and display one or more of the latest news stories on their site. Want to keep your readers up on the latest sports news? Well now you can. Or perhaps you want to keep up on the video game scene, no problem. We've collected several dozen news sources for you with topics ranging from Entertainment to Zoomshare itself. And you can always add your own feeds, including your zoomshare blog!

What's great, in my option, about the new widget is the user interface we've put together. Unlike Flipbook for example, this latest widget can be customized so its color scheme will match the rest of your zoomshare site. Plus, a site visitor can control the widget to display stories at a pace of their choosing, even jump ahead or jump back all with a minimal amount of effort.

Sounds neat right? Well then keep your eyes out for it, because it's coming to a website near you!
