PreCentral: webOS Nation community stepping up to fill in the void left by Pivot

webOS Nation community stepping up to fill in the void left by Pivot

HP Pivot was so unique in its application that it ended up a finalist in the 2011 Digital Magazine Awards. That uniqueness of the App Catalog magazine was severely hampered by the decisions made through the latter third of 2011, so much so that December saw Pivot replaced with a more generic "featured apps" brochure.

Oddly, that replacement only happened in the USA, with the other locales served by the App Catalog getting the short end of the App Catalog stick: they've been staring at the late-delivered November issue of Pivot for more than five months now. As you can imagine, that's gotten a little old in more ways than one.

GMMan in the webOS Nation Forums decided he'd had enough of his Pivot-less existence and set out to figure out how the magazine worked and if he could replace it. Turns out Pivot is just a collection of Javascript, images, layouts, and app infos, and redirecting it to a new server is a trivial matter of patching.

GMMan's put together a basic proof-of-concept test issue for a homebrewed Pivot just to prove it could be done, with remotely-hosted files for the magazine and a Preware-available patch to handle the redirect. There's some Lorem Ipsum-ing going on in the test issue - like we said, proof of concept - but it's a promising start to reinvigorating the dreary Featured Apps or outdated Pivot existence TouchPad owners have to deal with currently. For the concept to work, the new Pivot will need some new content producers since The Science Project isn't doing that job anymore. Plus, we think it might need a new name...
