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

When HP pulled

, we were understandably disappointed. But HP had promised something new and innovative in the way of app discovery. That

, which while new and

, was lacking in a pretty important area: it existed only on the TouchPad (

), 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

it'd be even easier than before to

, 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

      Hi everyone here.
      Have a LG 32" Smart TV since a few weeks - with the newish WebOS.
      Was searching here and everywhere, how I can enable and access via web browser (FF, Chrome or other) the WebUI.
      Know the IP Address - but no WebUi access.
      Main task to remove the never will be used Apps and add and config other stuff.
      Please provide solution that are working.
      Thanks in advance and have a nice day.
      Cheers Will

      I see an article in December 2019 that cbs all access was now available on tvs with webos >4.0. I have updated to the the latest os 5.80.55 and it says. O further updates are available yet cbs all access is still not listed in available apps. I tried to use on the amazon prime and it says my subscription type is not supported on this device. Anyone able to find this?

      My tv model is LG WEB OS  43Lf6300 
      I can't see the option of downloading hotstar on my tv from content store. This is really annoying why LG isn't caring about the old WebOS users. 
      Please make this available for old devices operating on web OS too. Want hotstar IMMEDIATELY.

      Installed new OLED65C6P-U
      Wired internet connection.  Can access web using resident browser, but cannot run any video within web applications such as CNN, Fox News, etc.  Can access Web Apps using Sony Blu-Ray.
      Cannot access LG Content Store.  Error message indicating a "temporary problem"
      Attempt to use any resident Web App says must update.  Select Update and get error message indicating a temporary problem along with error code 6003.
      Have reset 3 times.  Same result
      Have turned off AC to TV twice, waiting a minute before restarting.  Same result.
      Cannot access Local Account from TV General Settings page.
      Seems as if LG Server is down somewhaere, but no info on Web indicating this is the case as of this date (April 16, 2017)
      Email to Support resulted in email return saying problem difficult to solve via email; call Support (which I will do Monday).
      Similar problems seem to have faced customers in past with no apparent solution, but problem just disappears.
      Anyone faced this problem and solved it with specific steps to remedy?
