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? Kindly help me to understand what should be done in this case.   Thanks in advance

    • 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. When I go to settings -> Network -> Wifi it says that wifi is turned off and I need to turn it on to see available networks. Well there's no switch or option to turn wifi on. 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. I did a google search and the results that came up were for WebOs 1.0, even though it was written in 2017, and I have WebOs 3.0. It said hold the settings button until a box appears in the top right of the screen and input 0 0 0 0 then adjust the baud rate. First no box shows up on the 3.0 and two its not the baud rate I'm trying to adjust. I tried calling customer support to get to technical support. The automated system is garbage by the way. Then I found out they are only open Monday through Friday as if customers never have a problem on the weekend. This is my third stop looking for an answer. This problem is causing my dislike of LG products to grow even more. So if anyone has had this problem and figured it out I would greatly appreciate your help and thanks in advance for your time and help. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Product - from Settings -> General -> About this Tv Software version = 05.30.02 TV Information  = [LG] webOS TV OLED55C6P

    • Question: Can I access my UV collection on WebOS? (Flixster)

      Is it possible to access my UV collection on my LGTV?  For a little while the Blinkbox app allowed some access to some but not all and I don't think it does anymore.   Will Flixster ever get a port or could I get there via the browser?

    • Question: LGApps Keep Popping Up When TV IS Turned On

      % I have an LG TV Model OLED 65B6P-U. I operate it along with various other equipment using a Logitech Universal Remote and have used this without any problems for the past year.  I purchased the TV January 2017.   In the last week the options screen apps (things like Amazon, Netflix, Hulu etc.) pop up each time I turn on the TV. The only way to close them is to hit the back button on my LG remote, and then go back to my universal remote. I had to do some adjusting about a week ago that required me to use the LG remote and that’s when this problem started. I must have accidentally turned something on, since I have never had this problem before. Your help would be appreciated, how do I turn these pop ups off?    Some had said this could be related to a setting that the store uses on the sales floor for promotional reasons, but I checked and that is turned off as it should be.  This link provides with a pciture of the problem:    https://photos.app.goo.gl/whwIbgeVPi7pHDm53
