Mobile widgets – the bluetooth chat is taken to another level by Clint Jhonson

 You can now interact with your friends by having a bluetooth mobile phone and some mobile widgets installed. Most companies in this domain provide all that you need in order to find people and chat with your friends, business partners etc. Who would not want to stay on top of things all the time and know what their friends are up to? It would be great to communicate with them and stay in touch just as if they were right next to you. With mobile widgets you can do all that – and more: you can get traffic alerts, news, blogs, gossip, restaurant reviews, weather reports and loads of other stuff that you would normally get through a web service, without having to wade through hundreds of websites. Bluetooth chat is also possible between two or more people that have a mobile phone which supports bluetooth and mobile widgets.

Bluetooth chat is a direct text chat between two or more users, where every one of them utilizes a bluetooth device and names it (optional). This way of communicating is generally used in a public and populated space like a pub, a street, a plaza and so on. To initiate this chat, one goes to the connectivity menu on his/her device and turns on the bluetooth port. Next, one should try to discover new bluetooth devices in order to find and add some bluetooth co-chatters. Now that the list is made, one can create a note and send it via bluetooth to the other devices/users. Even if you do not have a mobile widget on your phone, people who have this feature on theirs can still detect you; they can declare your cell phone as a friend and receive notifications each time you are around or even invite you to use the same company as they do. Because friend alerts are based on the bluetooth feature of your friend’s cell phone, they will work anytime your friend’s bluetooth is switched on. Mobile widgets only help you communicate easier and offer you many new opportunities.

Generally speaking, a widget is a small application, a little bit of code, that does one simple thing but does it well. In order to be able to run a widget, you need a “Widget Engine”, which is the framework needed to run these micro applications. This approach fits particularly well on mobile world, where space on screen is limited, and where it is not easy to switch between applications. A widget engine is so hassle free that there is no need for you to click from site to site, refresh, or browse for what you want – the information is updated to your cell phone automatically. Each bluetooth chat implies finding out the names of the people with whom you chat. This is how it is done: each bluetooth cell phone has a name, which is visible by other devices. Many people change the default name (usually the cell phone brand or model) into a friendlier one. If you play with the scan feature, you will meet lots of new people and for some of them you will already know their names. Which means that these mobile widgets are quite some ice breakers!

The second important thing about a mobile widget is that it can be combined with other widgets. These applications were previously called plug-ins, components, extensions, or gadgets, but the real innovation is that now it is up to the users: they can combine these mobile widgets to create their own unique application. For example, the user can choose to have CNN News, Paris weather etcetera. Some companies come up with technologies that allow complex widgets for communities; they also facilitate user created applications – you can create an application for your business or one for your blog.

You can find companies on the Internet which offer you a series of advantages, like reading your favorite blogs on your mobile phone, checking your horoscope daily, meeting new people, finding the latest sport results, being alerted when a friend is near you etc. The most important feature is that by having a mobile software provider, you can talk via bluetooth with all the people that surround you. Thanks to this bluetooth chat technology and the mobile widgets, you can declare as a friend a person who does not have both features yet. Those services are very affordable, taking into consideration that they are totally free; you can use them as much as you want, create as much as you want, and share with others to the point that you can’t share anymore.

As the mobile phone industry expands every year, the mobile widgets are welcome to make our lives easier and make the connections between people stronger. People get connected also through bluetooth chat which, together with these phone widgets, improves the mobile phone technology.
