PreCentral: The webOS Wish List: A browsable web-based App Catalog

The webOS Wish List: A browsable web-based App Catalog

When HP pulled access to their previously-open-to-all App Catalog feeds, we were understandably disappointed. But HP had promised something new and innovative in the way of app discovery. That turned out to be Pivot, which while new and innovative to say the least, was lacking in a pretty important area: it existed only on the TouchPad (and doesn't exist at all anymore), leaving those of us looking to do some app browsing and comparison online in a lurch.

While we're still longing for the return of the app feeds or an appropriate replacement so we can resurrect the App Gallery in full, we'd also like to see HP go official with their own web-based App Catalog browser. And with open source Enyo 2.0 it'd be even easier than before to just put the app itself online, accessing all the same content in the exact same way. Plus, having a web presence there when somebody searches Google for App Catalog would be a incredibly good thing. Right now a search for App Catalog brings up results that are practically worthless to the intended purpose of the search.

Also, it should be a source of great embarrassment to HP that Apple, Google, Microsoft, and even Research in Motion all have desktop-browsable application stores. Seriously, BlackBerry beat webOS to the punch. On the web. That's not good.

Have your own thoughts on this webOS Wish List entry? Of course you do - the comments await. Without a doubt you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so we've created a forum thread just for that - and an awesome discussion it has proven to be.

    • Question: WiFi is turned off

      Hello, In the network option for Wi-Fi connection I'm unable to see the ON/OFF option for the wifi connection. The message says "Wi-Fi is turned off. Turn it on to see the list of available networks that you can connect to and additional related menu items". As this has previously happened for which I had to call the customer service for which they had sent an associate for that after which it worked properly. If that problem had been fixed then why this issue/problem occurred again?

    • Question: Wifi must be turned on?

      When trying to use apps that need an internet connection I get an error (-106) saying that there is no connection.

I've had it connected to wifi before. Also sometimes it disconnects and then I have to go back in and tell it to connect again. This is the first time its said the wifi was off.
