Yes please! There really is not a reason for this not to happen. Overall, there seems to be a lack of apps for this smart TV. 

Lack of apps is problem, well it is only a problem if there is not an app you specifically want.  LG do not make the apps themselves and we, the end user, have no idea how much effort LG themselves make at getting content providers to produce apps for the platform.  So if you want a specific app really you need to pursue that with the content provider first, then if you cannot get any joy out of them contact LG and give them proof of your interaction and then see if they will get involved.

If you write code then producing an app for webOS does not seem particularly difficult, there is a well developed SDK, plenty of help, tutorials and code examples on the LG developer site and of course YouTube is there if needed.  There is of course a process to go through submitting the app to LG who if they approve it will make it available in the app catalogue.  

I imagine that one of the biggest reasons that LG does not write the apps themselves is that content providers would have to allow access to various APIs and the like to be able to interact with their services, which some would be reluctant to do.
