Technical Definition – A portable software application intended for one or more different software platforms. Users interact with widgets through the widget’s host platform, but the widget’s functionality is often largely independent of the platform itself.
Layman’s Definition – A small application that plugs into a host web page or application, often providing content and functions not offered and not directly controlled by the host. These are often encountered in the forms of web advertisements, social media buttons, or weather plugins, but there are many types of widgets out there.
How we use it – For customers who are seeking to get more out of their existing platforms, alligatortek can create custom widgets for those platforms tailored specifically to their workflows.
