The Public Beta of Microsoft’s Popfly is online and ready to sign in.
Popfly is the fun, easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications. Popfly consists of a set of online visual tools for building Web pages and mashups, and a social network of creators where you can host, share, rate, comment and even remix creations from other Popfly users.
With a popfly account and the required Silverlight plugin (a cross-browser, cross-platform plugin for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. source:Microsoft) you can:
- customize and share media like pictures, podcasts, music, and video, build beautiful slideshows using pictures from Flickr, Windows Live Spaces, Facebook, or embed a Podcast or video player or any Web page.
- describe your online persona.
- add some fun to your Web site by adding customized games or create custom quizzes or polls to easily embed on your Web site.
- put it all together on a custom home page, add photos, a RSS feed, videos and more, all without knowing something about code.
Try it and enjoy!
