In order to start using the site or taking a look at other users’ creations, one must login as a member, which is free and simple. After that’s done, just enter the URL of any flash widget, attach a “share” button on to it, customize it in terms of graphic design and outlook, and then figure out what you want to happen when your widget users click “share.” The site takes special pride in offering extreme customization tools intrawidget, that is, that are embedded in the app and not next to it, and go to pains to lay it clear that the app is not a theme picker, where users can just pick a color or upload logos and pictures to change the general aspect of the widget, but to be able to modify every aspect of it, from the functions, content, panels, backgrounds, borders, buttons, etc. by uploading graphics or using the gradient creator.
