My iTunes Widgets from Apple
Apple has released a web widget that allows users to embed their recent iTunes Purchases, iTunes Reviews and iTunes Favorites into their website, blog or social networking profile. The new service is called My iTunes
iTunes is giving you an effortless way to keep your friends up-to-date with your favorite music, TV shows, movies, and more. My iTunes widgets are simple, self-updating add-ons for your web page, social-networking profile, or blog.
Use My iTunes to share your top reviews, favorite artists, and new music, movies, and TV shows from the iTunes Store with anyone who visits your site.
To start, you need to log into the iTunes Store. From there you click "Enable My iTunes" from your profile and check off which features you want to display:
- My iTunes Purchases - The most recent music, music videos, TV shows, and movies you've purchased from the iTunes Store.
- My iTunes Reviews -Music, music videos, TV shows, and movies you've given a 4- or 5-star rating on the iTunes Store.
- My iTunes Favorites - The artists whose music you've purchased the most from the iTunes Store.
The end result is a Flash widget (Screenshot shown here):
