Sprout, the WYSIWYG flash application and widget building tool, will no longer be offering free accounts. The service will become pay-only starting early February 2009. Sprout is offering current customers a monthly subscription of $13.95 through 2009. In 2010, all accounts will start at $59.95 per month. The company will continue to offer free accounts to non-profits and academic institutions.
Does anyone know of another free widget service?
