WebWag

WebWag

A mobile widget framework that can run hundreds of different widgets including a weather app, headline feeds from CNN, CNN, Yahoo, Techmeme and many other on-line news sources, a notepad, to-do list and Twitter and Facebbok clients.

WebWag needs a fast processor, large screen and lot’s of memory to run well. I found it frustratingly slow on my i776. Some of the widgets, like the weather one, were to big for the screen. It should be better on the i9 or i856 and StratMatt, who found WebWag and posted it on the BoostApps forum, says it works flawlessly, other than the usual key mapping issues, on his i465.

When you install WebWag it asks you about your interests and adds a number of widgets based on your answers. You can add and remove widgets using the app but if you have a PC, it’s easier and faster to configure WebWag using the desktop web site at webwag.com/startup/

I found that the news feeds like CNN and Engadget worked best on my i776. The Twitter client also worked pretty well and was quite attractive. But it was very slow and unlike dabr.co.uk it can’t display Twitpics and other embedded Twitter content. The Facebook client seems broken and get an error every time I tried to log in.

JAD JAR ZIP

  1. Signed version thats all i have to say,signed version always works well on all fones and weblag is slow lol my granny has more kick than webwag. I tried all formats jar & jad kb & mb i rather stick with nimbuzz and smoke signal.

    • Nimbuzz has widgets too?

  2. works great on the sanyo incognito only thing it cant validate when loggin in to twitter

  3. Installed and ran (very slowly) on my i465g. I was excited to see the Traffic widget, but it never loaded, just froze the phone. Nice try, but I deleted the app all together. One of these days we’ll have a a simple traffic app that will actually work, until then, it’s sigalert.com using Opera.

    • @boostapps.comMatt.Since when is traffic a factor?With more than %20 of the working age population,maybe more in major cities through out the US major traffic jams are so retro.Sad but True!

  4. @boostapps.comKrazyKev…I’m definitely not the author of WebWag,nor do I have any affiliation.I’m just the poor bastard with an i465 that stumbled into this app & posted it on the boost forum.I had no gain by posting it.Im not even French(the author’s are)lol.

  5. Ahh , I see what you mean . But the i465 is far from a jewel . That’s why reviews by the author are not recommended .

  6. Flawless is all relative in that nothing runs flawless on my i465.Compared to other multi feature apps it’s just as laggy imho.My Memory up ram booster helps big time.Maybe that is something you folks are missing.

  7. I cant download it on my incognito is there any other site to download it at? I clicked the jad and it says sumthin.

    • The apps on this site are tested on Motorola i series Boost phones like the i776. Some will also work on an Incognito and some won’t. can’t tell you which will because I don’t have the phone to test with.

      There are lots of download sites. There’s a big list here: http://wapreview.com/?id=200 Two good ones are: http://wap.getjar.com/ and http://mobilerated.com/wap/

      No matter what site you use not every app will work on every phone. You generally have to try several to find one that works.

      Also take a look at: What apps are you running on your Sanyo Incognito? on Howard Forums to see what other Incognito useres have found that works.

  8. slow on my 465.
    deleted it

  9. Were you using an i465 phone or an i465 emulator ?

  10. Hmm . I can’t seem to get this to work flawlessly on my i465 . But maybe I was having an ADHD moment . A wider screen and faster processor is a must .

  11. If you click on my name it takes you to my personal blog where you will seea “webwag this”chicklet.Im curious if this can be turned into a user bookmarklet Making adding non-mainstream blogs easier to add?Any coders willing to give it a shot?
    Thanks,
    Matt
