[Widget] Meta Widget
Meta Widget : Meta is a unique widget that can turn virtually any online content into dynamic, interactive widgets.
Simply browse to a website, pick a column of text, link, image or element and enjoy this information right on your home screen!
Please read the NOTE and INSTRUCTIONS below before posting a comment or question. Meta Widget app is still at an early stage of development and we need feedback. If you have questions, write to email@example.com, we will help.
Almost anything can be parsed out of a website – images, articles, feeds or features. Use it for local papers, web comics, site statistics, analytics, account information, forums, threads, inbox status, weather, stocks, pics of the day and even Facebook pages!
Any widget created through meta can be customized and automatically updated, or updated on user interaction.
Meta Widget Features
★ Create widgets from almost any website element
★ Parse graphs and images
★ Extract statistics and information from authorized sites
★ Configure widgets (background, alignment, etc.)
★ Automatic updates
★ User defined click actions
★ Lots of other cool stuff
The free version of Meta Widget app has all features but automatic updates.
INSTRUCTIONS: To get started, add a Meta Widget to your home screen and navigate to the site you want to widgetize. Then, when you get to the page you want, check the box in the lower left corner and tap somewhere on the page. It’ll surround that element in an orange box, after which you can move the selection tool around with the arrows at the bottom of the screen. When you find the element you want to put on your home screen, tap the plus sign and go to town configuring text colors, widget alignment, and more to make it look just right.
NOTE: This method of creating widgets will not always work for every site. But it should work for many with the proper CSS corrections. There is nothing quite like this on Android, and we know that it may not work perfectly on all devices, so please help us iron out bugs and add new features by writing with reports and suggestions or visiting our XDA Developers thread hxxp://goo.gl/YgEDk and posting there!
Meta Widget User Reviews :
Very intuitive, and very useful!
Perfect for what i need. There isn’t really an app for swell and surf reports in Australia. Was writing one for myself, but now i don’t need to! Thanks!
I love the Meta Widget app, makes it easier to see news updates on home screen. But can you add an option to stretch an image vertically?
This is just what I was looking for! Found you on xda
I’m actually changing my rating to downgrade it. The developer seems to have a very immature attitude towards people writing on the xda forums by telling them they’re on his ‘ignore list’ when they are simply advising (for his benefit) on how to approach people asking questions. Its pointless putting a link in your description for help, when you just talk down to people.
Really amazing app i love it ! Also of course it isn’t showing up in the app drawer ITS A WIDGET YOU MORONS read the app description…
