Webkinz Desktop!

Webkinz released the new Desktop App today, and it is WONDERFUL!!!

It is easy to install, easy to use, and since it is full screen you can see little details! Webkinz World has never looked better!!! (Note: Since it is full screen you can just press the Windows button on your keyboard or alt-tab to switch windows to still chat on the blog, do Peek A Newz, etc. at the same time.)

Go install it! YIPEE! You can click the image above or <here> to go to the WKN page with the installation link and information.

    Okay, here’s a problem though – you can’t have a screen up with a code & enter it in the code shop while still looking at the code on the other screen . . .

    yikes! obviously we can just toggle back & forth between windows, but i wish we could keep it from being full screen for that reason . . . i like having the windows side by side when i’m entering community codes

    Interesting, I didn’t know they were working on something like this.
    I like the idea of the pineapple turtle from the last post, but I don’t like how it turned out. It had the potential to be cute, but it looks kind of off… and high…
    Boyfriend is doing better, he got moved out of the icu. Probably another week or so in the hospital, not sure if he’s going to the psych floor or not.

    choco – has he regained his memory?

    they announced this a little while back when they figured out it was too much to rebuild the entire thing without flash – the desktop app works with flash where the web browsers will not some time soon

    Heylo, this looks FUN! I’m firing it up to see how it is. I wonder if “Dumas” the laptop can handle running this version better than the online one…

    It’s HOT here- isn’t it Moms? When’s it going to rain again? I’m watering the gardens daily now, and we got Kiddo a swimming pool. He’s in there a few hours a day. We’re harvesting potatoes in the garden (we’ve dug up close to 40, and still have a few plants to excavate), and trying to get summer stuff started up.

    I’m struggling keeping up with Webkinz World lately. Too much other fun stuff to do ;) Got the prizes for this month, though- just in time for the new challenges to begin! :)

    Choco, glad to hear about your BF improving. Do they know if he’ll make a full recovery, or if there’s any lingering effects of the trauma? How are you holding up?

    Pineapple turtle looks a little off to me too. A little… “dopey”.” Coooooool, maaaaaan. Pineapples… they rooooocckkkkkkk.” ;) Maybe he’s been dipping in Dee’s medicinal herb garden, if ya know what I mean! :::snort:::

    Hot? What is this hot weather you speak of? We don’t seem to know what that is here in michigan. At least not this year.
    I don’t think he remembers falling down the stairs, but from talking with me and his mom, as well as the psychologist, he’s aware of what happened. Not sure about long term affects. Mentally he seems fine.
    That turtle has definitely been messing around with the herb garden.

    Puma, we have wildfires all around us. Everything is yellow and dingy looking. The air smells of smoke and it just keeps creeping forward. I tried to take a picture of outside with my phone, but for some odd reason, it doesn’t see what I see?? Like when I see a bright red sun because of the smoke, it just sees a golden ball. It’s like it corrects my vision, just like it continually corrects my spelling.
    Moms, just use your windows swoosh on your keyboard to gain access to your browser. It’ll be a pain in the tuchus for a bit, until we get used to it or they come up with window in window.

    dixie – i’m thinking i’ll use the browser log in, get caught up on codes, then switch to the desktop ;-)

    that might sound lazy, but we are talking about a lot of accounts that are behind on codes, and i want all those white egg prizes because i LOVE them ;-)

    Oh my goodness, Dixie! Or maybe I should say…Oh…..my……gooo…oood…ness….Dix….ie! Ha ha!

    Gaga – I mainly have trouble with strength. Sometimes with speed, but usually can complete that one. I’m totally frustrated with being stuck at level 8 strength with 33 more classes to go for almost a year now. That is trying it twice daily since it is a deluxe account. I can hardly pass level 7.

    Miracle! 3 graduates from same household? Wow! I had two last year and that was plenty! But, I can kinda’ related. I had three weddings in an 8 month time span, two of them being three weeks apart! Crazy times, yet fun & memorable.

    Don’t have time yet to figure new app! Packing for trip. Leaving in about 12 hours.

    I was talking to someone on discord back when they first announced they were doing the desktop app and they said it might be possible to have two accounts up at once with full screen using a work around from toontown on pc. I am on a mac so can’t try it out. They weren’t sure if there was a way on macs or not.

    tmt5 you could look up the old “run two toontown accounts at once” videos if you’re on windows. the original toontown ran the same way, it defaulted to fullscreen and you couldn’t open the launcher if you already had the game open already but there was a way around it via the task manager.

    I found this not sure if it is what they were talking about.

    Hi everyone! :)

    I agree with those saying the Pineapple Turtle looks a little “off.” I was so excited when I saw the name header, but then I scrolled down to the pet picture and was disappointed.

    I am sooo glad those who have Windows are reporting mostly GOOD things about Webkinz Desktop!! I figured there would be a bunch of negative comments on Webkinz Newz under the post about WD, but surprisingly not. I just hope the Mac version turns out just as good!

    I hope everyone has a great Friday!

    the bags sound like they have some really nice prizes! can’t wait to see them all!

    dixie – the wildfires always sound SO scary to me! i can’t imagine having them close! that video made me LOL “Speedy” seems like a great name for it! i was guessing the pineapple turtle talks like Crush – “duuuuude” lol

    Moms, gagagee, catmom, dixie, and everyone else thank you all so much for your support! :) It made my day seeing all the warm wishes and positive comments that this fall den has gotten! There were definitely so many beautiful and creative room designs submitted for that contest, so I’m not going to get my hopes up just yet! But who knows? Maybe I’ll get lucky! :)

    Also yay on the desktop app!! I know so many people would be devastated if webkinz decided to shut down completely (still miss mazing hamsters and amazing world which are no longer available)!! Thank goodness Ganz is creating a work-around for that whole adobe flash issue, and we’re starting to see some results in the right direction!

    Hugss all! Enjoy today!

    Just went and voted for Fall Den! Congrats Muffin on a gorgeous room and being selected for the finals!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

    Lots going on in RL, I too am trying to keep up with WW. Hoping to get a few white egg codes in tonight.

    I’m so glad the app is working for everyone. Hoping they release the mac version soon and come up with a way to have side by side windows.

    I LOVE that Daisy Lion too and hope they come out with more daisy items to match the bed! They should to do a whole fl0ral favorites line with daisies. I kinda like the stoned turtle. :D

    Thoughts, prayers, hellos and hugs!

    Is anyone else having problems with keeping their pet full? Every time I do one activity it still drains a crazy amount of hunger level.

    HEY, I just saw this today, and I’m LOVING it! Super catchy (synth-music-y), anime-styled music video. It makes me so HAPPY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9Q3i5w6-Ug

    It makes me think of the music videos from Daft Punk in the early 2000s. *lesigh*

    Moms, isn’t it a GORGEOUS, cool, sweet, breezy night? *sigh* I’m glad this heat wave started to break today.

    Guess I’ll hold off on feeding my pet until the bug is fix. No point on wasting my food when it’s going so fast.
