Killer Apps and Cool Gadgets: Take HuffPost With You Wherever You Go


In June, I wrote about the very cool gadget that our tech team created to allow iGoogle users to keep up with the Huffington Post at a glance -- and without having to leave their iGoogle page.

I really love how you can flip through all of our content areas quickly, getting the top news of the moment -- delivered with the signature HuffPost attitude and style. It's a lot more than just a feed of our top stories - it's interactive, it's visually compelling, and it's constantly refreshing.

Here's a taste of what the gadget gives you:

HuffPost Gadget

Our goal is to make it possible for you to take HuffPost with you wherever you go -- whether it's via our amazing iPhone app, our new BlackBerry/mobile site, the app we are developing for Android, or the iGoogle gadget -- which, thanks to a host of new features Google just launched, has become a lot more interactive and social.

Earlier this week, I talked about how social news is going to be the next step in the evolution of news -- and how much more engaged we are when we share the news experience with friends. That's why we launched HuffPost Social News, our digital water cooler -- making it easy to connect with your friends over the news, and to dig deeper into the stories you like best.

For those of you who spend a lot of time on iGoogle, the updated HuffPost gadget offers some of the same social experiences. You can now share stories with your friends and keep up with what your friends are up to online.

And don't worry if you're an iGoogle addict and also signed up for HuffPost Social News -- we'll be integrating Google's social tools into HuffPost Social News soon.

You can add the HuffPost gadget to your iGoogle page here. You can get the iPhone app here, and the BlackBerry app here.

And, if you want, you can add any or all of the gadgets on my personal iGoogle home page (or the home pages of Dave Matthews, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Rania, Al Gore, and Rachael Ray, among others) to your iGoogle home page here.

Let us know what you think. We love getting your feedback.
