New apps and updates in the App Catalog 11-24-2009


23 new apps in the App Catalog today along with a handful of updates. Only 49 to go until we reach 500! Should we celebrate at 500? I am not sure if we should but I still hold out hope for 1,000 apps by January 2010. So todays apps include more fart apps, more note apps, more money mangement apps, and Delicious Morsel's app 'Feeds' that we have all been waiting for. We also finally have the non demo version of Connect 4 and Tetris Mania by Electronics arts which have been demos for most of the Pre's life. So lets move on to the list.

Check out the list of apps and updates after the break...

webOS 1.2 and Pay Apps coming on September 24th?


It's about time, according to a leaked internal doc, Palm is said to bring "Application Sales" on September 24th, and the last time I remember, that should mean webOS 1.2 update and new revamped App Catalog as well. Also interesting to note is that, Palm requires from developers a $5 annual membership fee, which is nothing compare to what they will most likely make.

First peek at the New App Catalog that's landing this month?


Engadget has gotten their paws on what it appears to be snapshots of the 'revamped' App catalog that Palm stated to land this very month. The photos looks pretty genuine to me, so it's safe to say that App Catalog will be officially out of Beta and start selling pay apps very soon, this month. With the new App Catalog, you'll find a cleaner look, support for Credit Card payments, Apps Tag Clod, integrated app management. I wouldn't be surprise if this lands within the week.

Leaked webOS 1.2.0 reveals upcoming features

go4craig over at the PreCentral forums, was using the webOS Doctor method to restore the Pre back to factory settings and accidentally gotten hold of the next webOS update, 1.2.0 (Palm fixed the link), revealing some interesting stuff. 

First one not a surprise, option to add your credit card information in App Catalog, welcoming the pay apps. Which means 1.2 should land sometime this month.

Text and Image selection in the Browser, for copy and paste. Very nice.

Little tweaks here and there. 

The official update should't be to far away...

13 new palm pre apps, still news

Hit up the App Catalog, and you'll find 13 new apps ready for download. In a month, new apps will no longer be news, but until then it's still news worthy here. 

In the new apps, we got a couple simple games, Wikihow app (Woot!), tip calculators, translate app, password management app, contact app and a couple more. So check them out and let me know which of the 13 you like the most.

[Thanks for the tip, Deborah]

Palm Pre is now officially shipping in Canada on Bell, did you get yours? [Send in your photos of your quest for a Bell Pre.] With the launch, Palm has also released 4 new apps on the App Catalog, one specifically made for the Canadians.

The first one is Yelp, if you don't use Yelp, use it. It looks for your local bas, gas station, doctors, whatever. 

Yahtzee Demo, a demo game mostly involving rolling a dice to play. But it's actually pretty cool.

Tetris Mania Demo, need I say more? 

And lastly, The Canadian, news from the Canadian Press right on your Pre. Available in english and French.
