Putting the Spotlight on Your Wolfram|Alpha Widgets

Wolfram|Alpha widget “builders” have been busy creating and sharing their innovative Wolfram|Alpha-powered mini apps on their sites and with their social networks. We’re thrilled by your excitement and widget-building efforts.

The Wolfram|Alpha Widgets home page with the new featured widgets

Beginning today, we’re shining a light on some of the most popular widgets in the gallery, one of which will be designated as the featured widget on the home page. Not only can you use any of these featured widgets on the Wolfram|Alpha Widgets site, but it’s easy to embed any of these widgets on your site, too!

This week’s featured widget on the home page is a quick calorie calculator that lets you calculate the number of calories burned when running, walking, biking, swimming, and cross-country skiing. You can even personalize your results by taking into account factors such as sex, age, distance, and speed.

Want to see your widget featured on the Wolfram|Alpha Widgets site? Share your custom widgets on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, and your other social networks. Then ask your friends to test and rate your widgets. Be sure to add a title, provide a description, and use proper punctuation. The most popular widgets will be reviewed by our team every two weeks and prominently featured on the site.

Do you have a Wolfram|Alpha widget on your site? Share a link to your widget in the comments box below!


Is there any chance, or any information on it, we will soon see plugin /widget /shortcode for WordPress *hosted* blogs?

I don’t have it on my site, but I have it on your site 🙂 Most useful widget, as it provides the answer to *everything*!
