Today, we're excited to open up a developer sandbox for iGoogle. The sandbox includes support for OpenSocial, a common API designed to let you easily build social applications that run on a growing number of web containers. The iGoogle OpenSocial container also supports canvas view, allowing developers to build powerful and feature-rich full-page applications for iGoogle's tens of millions of users.

To get started, please begin with the documentation and examples on the iGoogle developer website. The site includes detailed information about iGoogle and a guide to incorporating the new social features.

Watch as Jake walks us through the sandbox and shows how to build a basic gadget.



Sign up for access to the developer sandbox and keep up-to-date with our new iGoogle Developer Blog.

Happy coding!
