Let 'LOL This Page' Widget
Release Your Inner Comedian
Show the world just how funny you can be with a new widget for S60 3rd ed devices that supports the web runtime (WRT). This includes all Feature Pack 2 phones like Nokia N78 and Nokia N96, but it also works on the WRT extended FP1 phones like the Nokia N95!
Called 'LOL This Page', the widget lets users add statements to an assortment of funny pictures, then post them on their blogs, personal sites and social-networking pages.
The widget also offers built-in editing tools that let users create and save new statements.
Beside changing the comment, you can also configure the text color, text size and font style. There is an also a gallery function that lets users brows through other LOL pages and view images personalized by others! The real fun begins when visitors to a site try to come up with captions that are even funnier than the ones already there.
WTF is Widget?! I guess you're familiar with them from the desktop. Small, focused Web applications that are easy to install and use. Perfect for the small screen. Nokia has now extended the S60 browser engine to behave as a runtime platform in its own right.
Web Runtime is arriving with selected new devices and will be made available for millions of existing users through the Nokia Software Update service. Web Runtime is great for the small screen - a simple mobile web technology that can really work for you.
Through widgets, Web designers and developers can make favorite Internet experiences available with a single click from the S60 idle screen or Applications menu. The WeatherBug widget, which enables users to access the weather information they need, is one example of what widgets can do.
