Preserving webOS apps

Yesterday, webOS day saw the ninth testing release of LuneOS, but it was also the first anniversary without the servers and app catalog. The future looks promising, but we are on our own now.

Having bypassed this obstacle, they will then find their accounts and apps will not automatically restore. For them and to have a reasonable portfolio of apps for LuneOS, steps are being taken to encourage developers to make their apps available in alternative channels. Some have added to the webOS Nation app gallery, others are hosting installation packages on their own websites or code repositories.

However, you can still download apps that you have previously purchased and can acquire new free apps until January 15th. After that point, the App Catalog will be gone for good (at least the official one will…) and you’ll have no way to restore your apps. So, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve backed them up.

Día de los Muertos: webOS

Welcome! To our Spanish speaking friends: ¡Bienvenido!

Tonight is All Hallows Eve, known colloquially as Halloween. It is traditionally a night when supernatural spirits, spectres and ghosts emerge. The dead walk among us and we show them some respect.
