HP updates webOS Developer Center, adds reporting graphs and app privacy policie

HP updated the webOS Developer Center today to add in sales reporting graphs, a move presumably brought on or sped up by the planned

last month, as well as adding more compliance with state and federal laws requiring developers to provide privacy policies when their apps access certain user data which on iOS and Android over the past few months.

The App Catalog was updated in weeks prior to allow users to see the app's privacy policy but developers were unable to actually add one in until this past weekend. This new functionality allows a developer to provide a privacy policy for an individual app or a company-wide policy. This should add a bit of reassurance to every user knowing that they should soon see a privacy policy for most, if not all, apps that are required to provide one .

The other major update of the day is the addition of sales data in the form of graphs. Earlier today the data was available but many a developer tweeted back to the developer relations team to let them know the displayed numbers were horribly off. I personally noted a nearly twenty-fold increase in numbers under "active users" versus actual download numbers.

This is a welcome change, of course, because developers have been asking for an integrated solution for some time now. This does not yet not replace Metrix or true analytics systems, however, because while it does provide some information such as active users and download statistics it falls short of providing detailed user data such as device type, the version of webOS being used, screen resolution, and the language of the users. That data is critical to developers and we hope HP adds at least some of it in to the developer portal, even if it requires an extra Enyo or Mojo library be added to the app.

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Leader in Mobility Sector Innovation, Company Exhibits Its Cutting-edge Technologies,
      Provides Insights into Evolution of Software-defined Vehicle at EVS37

      SEOUL, April 23, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG), a respected mobility sector innovator, is participating in the 37th Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition (EVS) at COEX in Seoul, South Korea, from April 23–26. Hosted by the World Electric Vehicle Association (WEVA), EVS has a proud 55-year history and continues to attract top manufacturers, academics and thought leaders from around the globe. At EVS37, themed ‘Electric Waves to Future Mobility,’ LG will showcase its latest electric vehicle (EV) technologies and solutions, including batteries, charging systems and EV components.
      This year’s event will play host to more than 600 booths, with an anticipated attendance of more than 1,500 EV experts and approximately 250 companies. LG Electronics, in conjunction with its sister companies LG Energy Solution, LG Innotek and LG Display, is presenting an array of cutting-edge technologies across key areas of innovation. These range from core EV parts and systems to safe and efficient batteries and chargers. With its diverse portfolio of interrelated and complementary solutions, LG aims to play a significant role in driving the future of mobility.
      Visitors to LG’s booth at EVS37 will have the opportunity to see the company’s premium in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system. Employing plastic-OLED (P-OLED) display technology, LG’s system seamlessly unites three displays – an instrument panel, center information display (CID) and co-driver display (CDD) – to create a futuristic and elegantly curved panoramic screen. The much-in-demand system, which also incorporates LG’s exclusive curved glass molding, surface treatment and display bonding technologies, can already be found in a premium EV model from one of world’s top automakers.
      LG is also introducing its Automotive Content Platform (ACP) powered by webOS. Designed to elevate the in-vehicle experience, the new platform enables front and backseat passengers to enjoy high-quality video, game and music content while travelling to their destination. Based on the acclaimed webOS platform for LG Smart TV and tailored for in-vehicle use, the ACP powered by webOS offers easy access to a variety of popular OTT apps as well as convenient control and personalized content recommendations. Launched at the end of last year, the LG ACP was initially integrated into Hyundai Motor and Kia’s new Genesis GV80 and GV80 Coupe.
      LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture between LG and Magna, is showcasing its innovative products to the public for the first time at EVS37. Among its offerings are an 800V high-speed hairpin motor capable of producing a 250kW output, an 800V SiC inverter that controls motor with electric energy from the battery and an 800V IPGM drive system integrating a motor, inverter and gearbox.
      As part of the lecture and discussion series taking place at EVS37, LG will present its insights into the challenges of realizing the software-defined vehicle (SDV) – and introduce its technological solutions for overcoming them. Among the scheduled speakers are research fellows from the R&D laboratory at the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company Hong Hyun-taek, Park Young-kyung and software business leader Lee Jun-nyung. Additionally, LG’s R&D experts will demonstrate how the company is developing vehicle-interior sensing technology that will enhance the overall SDV user experience.
      “A recognized leader in advanced vehicle components, LG is excited to unveil its flagship solutions to the public, and share its considerable insight at EVS in Seoul,” said Lee Sang-yong, senior vice president of the R&D laboratory at LG Vehicle component Solutions Company. “Through our cutting-edge technologies, and via strategic collaboration with affiliates and industry partners, we will continue to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of OEMs and end-users.”

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?

      I purchased my nano cell tv over a year ago, and everything was fabulous, but after 6 mos, I noticed odd behavior. When I checked all the settings, the open source license was jeri cur and had quite a bunch of apps that I never wanted and can't change.
      The updates and the time refuse to update, so I constantly have to change settings. It shows apple products, like air play and other apps I never downloaded. 
      I have been dealing with these issues but just bought another big screen, an lg crystal 85 inch yet it doesn't seem to perform as it did on display at store. I have tried to download the newest software for the older tv, and I figured it was the webos, and got to the developer sight once but couldn't fix the problem, I believe the developer is the hacker, and I can't detach the controlling apps.
      My browser exhibits redirecting and I can't control my remote and other issues. Any suggestions?
