Vysr Opens The Doors To Its RoamAbout Platform


Vysr took another step forward in their development of the “user-centric Web” earlier this week as they announced the opening of their RoamAbout platform to 3rd party developers.

I’ve covered RoamAbout in the past and was impressed at the idea of being able to connect to my networking and other services from anywhere, all without leaving my source site.

Their existing Personal and Business Packs gave us a taste of what RoamAbout could do, but I can’t wait to see how things progress in the hands of the development community. I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on the application directory to see what we can come up with. The demand for access to the development site has apparently been overwhelming.

RoamAbout is a free extension available for IE and Firefox.

What services would you like to see added to RoamAbout?



Good job, vysyr. Pls develop a few search engine aps. Also want to see a creative commons ap. I like not needing to open new windows to do this.


I downloaded this a few days ago and it’s really awesome. I like the youtube and music apps. Helps me not get too bored at work :]


I’d like to see RoamAbout add these services—Netflix, imdb, amazon.com and multiple news services. Also would want more non-US stuff for us expats.
