Astronomy Picture of the Day - Google Gadget

Post by steff » Wed Aug 30, 2006 1:39 pm

Hi,

I made an APOD gadget for the Google Desktop Sidebar.
Image

It shows the image, title and description (animated extra panel) of the APOD.

You can find it here:
http://desktop.google.com/plugins/i/astronomy.html

Any C+C is welcome.

br,
steff

I'm sure this is good thing, but somehow I don't feel like installing Google Desktop. I did something like this before, btw, but I have no idea if it still works.

Good job Steff! I spotted this gadget on Google a couple of days ago and installed it. It works great. I like the fact that clicking on the image description opens the web browser to the APOD page.
