Here are the new customization pages for the the Fish and Treefrog gadgets:
I added a “Release Fly” option to the tree frog gadget a couple days ago that allows you to feed your frog without clicking. You can set it to release a fly every 5, 10, 20, 30, or 60 seconds. This feature is nice for keeping your frog entertained while you work.
I added a “Pattern Color” option to the tree frog, since there have been a few requests for it over past few weeks. I also added the pattern option to the tree frogs that are on Pageflakes and Netvibes.
To see the new a pattern option for the tree frog on iGoogle, edit the settings as described in my last post and select a pattern from the pattern drop down. There are currently two patterns available. Expect to see more in the future.
I will add the patterns to the other start pages soon.
Go ahead and feed him some flies.
I just added an update to the Tree Frog Gadget that allows you to display a jpg image behind the frog. Just edit your preferences and add the address of the jpg image to the Background Image textbox.
I made some bug fixes to the Tree Frog Google Gadget that should improve the load time. I also added a minor update that allows users to add four colors of their choosing. To do this, the user adds hex colors to the new Custom Color text boxes and then selects the custom color from the drop downs. This will make it easier for people to match the tree frog to the color of their site when using this page.
Stay tuned for a color chooser gadget that I should be done with late tonight or early tomorrow.
I’m releasing an update to the tree frog gadget this weekend. This update will allow users to change the color of the tree frog’s body, hands/feet, eyes and the background. You will also be able to change the size of his belly. Here are a few pictures to show you how you might modify him:
