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

was so unique in its application that it ended up . That uniqueness of the App Catalog magazine was severely hampered by the , so much so that saw Pivot replaced with a more .

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 for more than five months now. As you can imagine, that's gotten a little old in more ways than one.

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test issue - like we said, proof of concept - but it's a promising start to reinvigorating the dreary Featured Apps or outdated Pivot existence TouchPad owners have to deal with currently.

      I have a 2014 LG Web os smart TV    ( 65UC970T ) and I don't have any access to apps.  There used to be a selection of apps and now there's none. How do I access them?

      Hello, I have LG OLED CX and recently the Youtube app has incorrect geographic data- CH. I am from Slovakia, the TV has never been to Switzerland. Nor physically, nor virtually (VPN). I am getting CH ads, which I dont mind so much, but I am afraid of possible in app geo restrictions.
      I already tried everything, even resetting the TV to default.  No other TV app is affected.
      Anybody please advise.

      Hello all,
      I believe this problem started after i accidently started and immediately cancelled the download of a app. After this I am unable to install or update any app evem after resetting to initial settings.
      This should be the exact problem found here https://www.lgwebos.com/topic/1918-because-i-can however the solution seems to require a new update. Help?

      I have been struggling with the Tidal App on my LG C1. You play music, but it random stops playing. Both on Wired connection and WiFi connect. I basically can't listen to any full song, without the audio randomly stopping.
