Ashampoo Gadge It full review

At this price Gadge It is obviously not going to be a full programming or development system, such as Microsoft's Visual series, that allows you to create completely free-form gadgets. What it does do is create small applets that can launch a program, launch your email program to send an email to a specific person, play a music file, open a URL, open a folder, or quit the applet.

These applets may be in the form of a Windows Vista sidebar gadget, Windows 7 desktop gadget, a standalone gadget for XP, Vista, or 7 (requires Microsoft .NET 4.0), a simple menu that runs as an application, or an HTML page that performs actions inside a browser.

The Ashampoo Gadge It editor is much like any WYSIWIG graphics editor. You choose from templates, can create multi-page gadgets, change the background, add/remove/delete buttons, etc. and define the actions invoked by the buttons. The program is very easy to use - you can literally create a gadget in five minutes.
