dots & lines discontinues webOS versions of Carbon and Graphite Twitter clients

One year ago, one of our favorite webOS Twitter client -

- launched into the App Catalog for webOS smartphones. That was a different time, and the past year has been , enough to give any mobile developer the chills. has fought through those chills to release and with a slew of fixes. But one can only handle so much, and the small development firm of dots & lines has decided to call it quits on webOS.

Citing the continued cost of development to keep up with changes to Twitter's APIs and user expectations coupled with unsurprisingly declining sales, dots & lines made the decision to pull both Carbon and Graphite from the App Catalog. That means no more sales for either app, but it also means that existing purchasers of the app won't be able to redownload the apps after deleting them or when setting up a new webOS device.

While we can understand the thought process behind ceasing development on Carbon and Graphite, especially with dots & lines already having released and with in alpha and Carbon for iOS on the drawing boards. We are disappointed by the decision to pull Carbon and Graphite from the App Catalog, as it denies current users the option to redownload it in the future. Sure, Carbon stands a very good chance of becoming abandonware as Twitter makes changes that break the current API implementation, but we know that now going forward. Then again, new purchasers might not realize that and could be stuck with an app that only functions for a short time. dots & lines is at least considering open sourcing the code for Carbon, even if it is the year-old Mojo framework and not the newer Enyo.

Update: dots & lines has that they are offering refunds to anybody who purchased Carbon or Graphite for webOS in the last two weeks.

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying
