, but the user-facing features are just scratching the surface. webOS developer ScienceApps has been around the block a few times, including popular apps like and . With LunaCE, ScienceApps is amping up Starter, fixing one of our biggest complaints with the app.

The cool part about Starter is that it could launch multiple apps at once. The not-so-cool part was a limitation of webOS 3.x: those apps would all launch as separated cards, even if it would make sense to launch them in a stack. Starter users with LunaCE installed, however, can expect to now be able to launch multiple apps directly into a stack. The feature makes Starter, in our not so humble opinion, eminently more useful. Now you can set up a multiple app launching sequence of, for example, Facebook, Twitter, Messaging apps, all in one neat little 'communicate with your friends' stack instead of having them spread out and needing to manually regroup them on every launch. Video after the break.

Starter isn't the only ScienceApps app getting the LunaCE treatment. The developer is currently working on an update to that will take advantage of the in LunaCE, finally allowing the TouchPad to display larger-size dashboard notifications of your news stories. The LunaCE-enabled version of Lithium News is still a work in progress, but we're looking forward to its release.

, though interested users can install it as always via Preware, so long as you've enabled the beta feeds (check out for info on how to do that). ScienceApps is one of the first developers to take advantage of what LunaCE has to offer, and we hope more webOS app developers will follow down their path. Not all TouchPad users are going to install LunaCE, in fact we'd wager a relatively small portion even know of its existence, but for those that are taking the extra step of pimping out their TouchPad with the help of , there's more goodness to come.

      Hello, I am unable to sign into my LG account when trying to log into Developer Mode. 
        I verified that I was able to sign into my LG account on the LG webOS website on my computer several times. I clicked on "Show Password" and the credentials are completely correct. Yet still, I cannot log into Developer Mode.

      Please advise, thanks!

      I have a 55UH6150 LG Smart TV and was wonder if it was possible to update it to version WebOS 6. I have some apps I would like to install but sadly they are only avaible on the content store from WebOS 6+. Is it in anyway possible to update the SW for it?
      I know the page doesn't show WebOS 6 listed for it, but am curious if there is a way I can do it anyways
      Any information would be much appreciated

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin
