Closing Down Sale

Just in case you haven’t noticed, the HP webOS app catalogue will close to new purchases at the end of the week: the 1st of November to be precise.

This is your last chance to buy apps from the catalogue. Don’t walk, run! Some developers will see a nice little boost in income in the next few weeks.

UPDATE: App Catalog downloads and purchases are all functioning properly again. webOS Nations forums user mazzinia believes they found the likely culprit. At any rate, HP figured it out. Only about 24 hours left to purchase apps. Hurry!

News Crumbs – 4th September 2014

There’s been a lot of big news in the last week, so time for a quick clean out!

  • Some app updates went through HP’s admin last week. We know there are a couple more in the pipeline. Thanks to all the developers still supporting webOS. Expect reviews soon on pivotCE.
  • Platform game, Orcrest has new levels. See the pivotCE article here.
  • What’s Shaking is a must for earthquake… er fans?
  • Zap Photo Share let’s you share photos and slideshows across the wifi network. Why hand your phone around when you can beam to a bigger screen?
  • Lithium Messenger is an assistant for messaging, posting & tweeting. Expand words, add emoticons, pics, videos, shorten links, even translate! Is there a news crumbs mode? Maybe in the next update.
  • LG posted photos of Dev camp 2014. Owners of webOS TVs eagerly await the results of their efforts.
  • Meanwhile we were concerned to hear that two of the top designers had moved to Pebble. Will this affect the progress of webOS? We hope not.
  • Further disappointment came from This article from Gigaom.com, claiming that all is not well in LG’s Sillicon Valley Lab. Some disputed the fairness on twitter and webOS Nation. Have a read and decide for yourself.

I hope you enjoyed that, I fancy a nice grilled pannini to go with my affogato.
