The webOS Wish List: App Catalog sliding panels

I'll be honest, this is one of those of something minor that's always bugged me. I'm talking about the App Catalog, which if anything should be the epitome of webOS apps. So what does it do? It completely ignores the most characteristic of webOS TouchPad app features: the sliding panels of Enyo. For most of the browsing experience in the App Catalog that's forgivable. The top and bottom tabs do just fine and make sense to navigate around.

Where things break down is when you open an app listing. Suddenly you're presented with this tabled layout that works, but there's this weird, out-of-place button labeled "Back" in the bottom left corner. You know, right where the Enyo grab handle should be.

The App Catalog is an Enyo app, there's no doubt about that, but in the most identifiable of ways it behaves more like something out of iOS or Android. Heck, even the web browser has sliding panels, and that's for things like bookmarks that could be very easily displayed in a pop-over list. Think about it - browsing in the App Catalog could be greatly enhanced with the addition of Enyo panels. You could have a list of the apps on the left and the listing itself on the right, enabling fast one-tap comparisons. Screenshots could be presented in true full-screen instead of the also out-of-place overlay. There's a lot that Enyo could bring to the App Catalog, and it just doesn't make sense that it's not there. [/rant]

Have your own thoughts on this entry? Of course you do - the comments are below. Surely you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so .

      Hi,
      the WebOS specs stated that HLS is supported but didn't mention CMAF (or fragmented MP4) support.
      Therefore my question if CMAF(HLS)-Encodings are supported?
      Regards
      Riva

      Hi everyone,
       
      Has any of you updated OTA or manually to the latest webOS 2.0 firmware? It was released on June 13th in Europe and it is ver. 4.05.01! 
      Any new features or performance improvements?

      I want to control my C1 with my Google Home speakers, but my Android LG ThinQ app is not sending the correct info to my Android Google Home app to link the ThinQ service.  
      When I try, the error message says "No devices were found in your LG ThinQ account".  However, the ThinQ app is signed into my account and successfully controlling my C1.
      Google Home support and I think the issue is with the ThinQ app.

      link hidden, please login to view says this should work.  My LG support agent told me it's not supported; I'm guessing she was new.

      Is there any way to delete the preinstalled apps?   I particularly hate the "LG Channels" app because if I were to click the Antennae input inadvertently, something on one of those channels could cause burn in.
