Wolfram|Alpha Launches Widgets to Share Computable Facts Across the Web

Wolfram|Alpha LLC announced the beta versions of Wolfram|Alpha Widgets and Widget Builder to allow anyone to create and share simple yet powerful web applications using the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. This brings the full power of Wolfram|Alpha into a handy widget you can embed right on your website or blog.

A Wolfram|Alpha widget can be built in only a few steps using the drag-and-drop Widget Builder. Widgets can also be personalized, allowing creators to customize the look and feel of the widget as well as the display of the results.

Widgets can be created from any Wolfram|Alpha query. Want to have an app on your blog that calculates the predicted adult height and weight of a child based on his or her current stats? Or how about an app that compares the financial data of two public companies? Or creates a customized nutritional label for any recipe you have? The possibilities are limitless. For more examples of widgets, see the hundreds already in the widget gallery. You can freely take any of the gallery's widgets and embed them on your own blog or website as is or customize them any way you wish:

Wolfram|Alpha powers the website as well as factual results on partner sites like Bing, mobile applications such as the Wolfram|Alpha iPhone and iPad apps, and ebook content for books like The Elements: A Visual Exploration. With today's announcement, anyone can have a widget powered by Wolfram|Alpha.

The beta versions of Wolfram|Alpha Widgets and Widget Builder are available now for free: Release 1.0 will be available later this year.
