Widgetbox Creates Showcase for New My iTunes Web Widgets

Use the New Widgetbox MixIt(TM) Tool for Sharing Music Across the Internet

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Widgetbox(TM), the world's largest marketplace for web widgets, today announced the Widgetbox Showcase(TM) for iTunes featuring the new My iTunes web widgets, giving users new and fun ways to share their music and movie tastes across the web. The My iTunes widgets can be used to share top reviews, favorite artists, new music, movies, and TV shows from the iTunes Store. These new widgets can be easily found by anyone who visits iTunes, the Widgetbox Showcase for iTunes, or any site with the widgets posted, and can then be shared across the Internet. The My iTunes widgets reflect the way users use iTunes, so each one is unique-just like iTunes users' taste in music, movies, and more. The My iTunes widgets can be embedded on any Flash-enabled website, including most social networking profiles and blogs. My iTunes feeds can also be used with any standard feed reader, keeping web pages up-to-date with favorite music, music videos, TV shows, and movies from the iTunes Store.

Also featured in the Widgetbox Showcase for iTunes is the innovative Widgetbox MixIt(TM), a web tool that turns any iMix playlist feed into a web widget that then can be easily posted on social network profile pages, blogs, and other personal web pages. With the MixIt tool, iTunes users can build their personalized playlist on iTunes, and then easily share their customized iMix music selections with their family members, friends and millions of other music lovers across the web with a single click - no cutting and pasting of code is required.

"People pride themselves on their iMix playlists. Now users can easily share their iMix lists with their family and friends," said Giles Goodwin, co- founder of Widgetbox. "We expect the reach of iTunes to expand further than before imagined as the viral nature of web widgets will enhance growth."

The Widgetbox Showcase for iTunes is available immediately to anyone visiting http://www.widgetbox.com/showcase/itunes. Users who already have iMix lists published in the iTunes Store can immediately use Widgetbox's MixIt tool to create their customized iMix widget. Once this process is completed, the MixIt widget can be easily embedded in social-networking profile pages, blogs, and other web pages. Friends and family can easily get a MixIt for their own web pages and continue passing it on to additional friends.
