Angry Birds Rio has two episodes that contain over 60 new levels at the moment, but episodic updates are promised to arrive throughout this year. Let's not forget that Angry Birds Rio brings the biggest change to ...

webOS 3.0 beta now available to developers

With the webOS 3.0 SDK available for almost two months, HP has now given developers access to a beta download of webOS 3.0 -- which powers the upcoming TouchPad and will likely ride along on HP desktops and laptops in the form of an emulator. Right now, the webOS 3.0 beta is only available to Early Access developers. The crew at PreCentral states that HP appears to have eased up on access re...

Angry Birds will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some green levels

In the next few days, the awesomely adventurous, angry, avians will find themselves flying through the lush, emerald greens of St. Patrick's Day-inspired levels. The new levels are expected to be a free upgrade to the free Angry Birds Seasons game, which is available on Android, iOS, Symbian and WebOS.

webOS 2.1 arrives on original Palm Pre, unofficially

HP caused a veritable maelstrom recently when it announced that owners of the Palm Pre, Pre Plus, and Pixi wouldn't be getting an upgrade to webOS 2. The company then dangled an olive branch, saying that it would "do something" for those users, but never specified what that something might be. PreCentral, however, has been tracking interesting results from HP's update checker recently and noti...

HP webOS 3.0 SDK released to developers

HP managed to keep webOS 3.0 pretty well off the radar until the Think Beyond event, when it was in full display on the company's new TouchPad tablet. Now that the new OS has been outed, it's time for HP to get developers involved. Developers who are members of the formerly-Palm Early Access channel can now download the webOS 3.0 SDK (codenamed 'Enyo'). You'll need to email pdc@palm.com to get yo...

HP webOS 3.0 gets a video store, powered by Roxio

Yesterday saw a flurry of webOS unveilings from HP, from new hardware to a previously unseen version of webOS for tablets. They also finally dispelled any doubt about whether webOS would find its way onto HP PCs -- and it will, later this year. But the reveals weren't all about hardware and software -- content played an important role as well. Amazon's Kindle app was demoed on the TouchPad, as...

Kindle, Skype, and Time magazine subscriptions coming to webOS devices

Besides the previously-unseen webOS 3.0 and introducing new hardware in the form of a tablet and two smartphones, HP had some other gems under its sleeves at today's Think Beyond event. Taking center stage at the event was HP's new TouchPad, its first webOS tablet. There was more on display than hardware of course. We now know the TouchPad will get an official Amazon Kindle application, that, l...

HP Think Beyond announcements: webOS 3, webOS for PC and more

HP's Think Beyond event brought big announcements galore for webOS users. For one thing, webOS devices will no longer carry "Palm" branding, so you'll have to get used to running webOS on your new HP Pre 3 or HP Veer. And then there's the actual software! webOS 3 was quietly announced for the upcoming TouchPad tablet, and Think Beyond closed with a real showstopper: webOS will be running on PCs b...

Crosstalk for webOS enables easy Wi-Fi file sharing between devices

Because it means all webOS users will get to enjoy some slick, new apps like Crosstalk. Designed for the new OS, Crosstalk enables users to share files from their webOS devices with nearby friends (who also happen to be using a webOS 2 device)....

mPlayer -- the cross-platform, open source media player -- ported to webOS

Sure, the webOS App Catalog lags behind the markets of other mobile OSes -- but the homebrew community continues porting apps to HP/Palm's platform. One of the more recent additions is mPlayer, the cross-platform open source media app. Ported to webOS by Treo8 forum member Woshíthb123, mPlayer for webOS is far from perfect -- but it's only a first release after all. Playback of Big Buck...
