Let me introduce a company where I have some involvement as a technical advisor. This company is called Mobease, and their first product, still in beta, is called mobifindit! It’s a search engine for mobile phones that goes through offline and online content… MobileCrunch already has a positive review here. Mobifindit! will soon reach the 1.0 stage, but the company is working on a second important project named Mobidgets!
Mobidgets is a widgets engine for mobile phone. I will not describe all the features here, first because they are not yet frozen, but also to keep some excitement. I will do it in a later post. But Mobidgets is looking for alpha testers, people who are interested in creating widgets for mobile phones. So, to join the program, we prefer you to be a developer but there’s no need to be an expert! The only constraint is to have a Symbian S60 device 2nd Ed FP2 or FP3. If you are interested, go to Mobidgets.com
And here is a screen shot….Looks nice, no?
Update: a Java MIDP2.0 version is in the pipe too! The Symbian one was only a little bit more advanced than the J2me one. Of course, widgets will be compatible between the two versions, but Symbian provides some features not accessible through Java.
