Send links from any browser to any smartphone -- with just a bookmarklet

The world's most graceful and simple solution for pushing links to your smartphone has just emerged. It's called Site to Phone, and it works for every major Web browser. Theoretically, it works for every smartphone OS, too; iOS, webOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry -- and maybe even Symbian. Instead of requiring Chrome, or being restricted to just Android or iOS, this solution uses the...

webOS social networking app Incredible looks as good as its name

Over at PreCentral, Dieter Bohn has been lucky enough to score some quality preview time with Incredible -- a Swiss-knife social networking app for webOS. The app is another creation from developer Geoff Gauchet, who built the popular Foursquare app our own Nik Fletcher showed you earlier this year. Incredible supports all the services you'd expect, like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare,...

webOS Easter egg proves it has supercow powers!

Nothing beats a good software Easter egg -- like the new one discovered by a webOS user. If you own a Palm Pre with webOS 2.0, have someone fire off a quick email to you with supercowpowers in the subject line and watch what happens! You should see the same thing PreCentral's Dieter Bohn did: a bevy of bouncing bovines. While we wouldn't list this among the things which make webOS 2.0 an...

Firesheep comes to webOS

It's not as fast or pretty as its desktop cousin, but an ambitious tinkerer has still managed to port Firesheep to webOS. Yes, all the Wi-Fi tomfoolery that made you shudder as a Firefox extension can run on your Palm Pre.The man who performed the shoehorning -- who happens to be called Sebastian but probably isn't our Sebastian-- has shared a YouTube video of his handiwork which you can check...

Been waiting for a solid Google Voice app you can use on your webOS smartphone? Check out Voogle, which has just landed in the App Catalog at the bargain price of $1.99. Voogle supports all the important Google Voice features you'd expect. You can make voice calls, send text messages, playing recorded calls, and check voice mail.

webOS 2.0 coming soon to Pre, Pixi, and Pre Plus

With HP Developer Days in full swing, we're hoping there's plenty of good webOS-related news to report on in the coming days. One huge announcement has already been made, and it's great news for owners of the Pre, Pixi, and Pre Plus: webOS 2.0 will soon be available for your devices. That's good news for developers as well. webOS 2.0 is a very different beast from its predecessor, so making the...

Facebook beta app for webOS gets Places support

HP Palm's webOS crew continues to churn out useful updates to their software, and this one is kind of a biggie if you're into social networking and check-ins. Today's update to the Facebook beta app brings Places support to Pre and Pixi owners. To check in, simply tap the menu button in the app's top-right corner and then tap the Places icon. Nearby locations will be displayed, and you can then...

Skype for webOS 2.0 gets the hands-on treatment

One app I've been wishing for on my Palm Pre is Skype -- since I don't have a cellular plan on it, being able to place calls via Wi-Fi would be pretty handy. The good news is that it's on the way -- for webOS 2.0, anyway. Former Download Squadder Brad Linder got to spend some quality time with the app recently, and he's shared his initial impressions of Skype for webOS over at Mobiputing. This...

Google News enhanced for Android, iPhone and Palm Pre

Today, Google's rolling out a few new enhancements for the mobile version of Google News, which launched only this time last year. The cramped interface has been expanded to make accurate tapping easier for your chunky fingers, while the default story view has been collapsed to make story browsing a less scroll-intensive affair. A simple tap on the headline or snippet opens up the story for...

Grooveshark 1.2 for webOS adds background playback controls, shuffle mode, more

Grooveshark is one of my most-used webOS apps, and the recent 1.2 update makes an already good app even better. The most prominent addition is the notification area player controls, which allow you to command Grooveshark as it plays in the background -- just like the built-in webOS player. There's also a new shuffle mode for random enjoyment of your playlists, and Grooveshark 1.2 has also...

Angry Birds and Glow Hockey win $100,000 in Palm's PDK Hot Apps Competition

As if Angry Birds needed any more money or publicity, the makers of the bestselling iPhone and Android game just won $100,000 in Palm's PDK Hot Apps Competition. The competition was open to WebOS apps developed using Palm's PDK software development kit, and Angry Birds walked away with top honors in the paid apps category. A game called Glow Hockey also won $100,000 as the best free app in the...

Spotify for webOS is out, you still need a subscription to use it

Spotify has just launched another mobile app, this time for Palm's (now HP's) webOS. Those who own smartphones running this operating system, such as the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi can now use their Spotify Premium subscriptions while on the go as well. Because, as with all other Spotify mobile applications, a Premium account is required for this app to work. Feature-wise, it's pretty much got...

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 will land on Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry

Adobe has just announced that it will unleash Flash Player 10.1 on a whole list of mobile operating systems, from Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry and WebOS 2.0 on down to the Symbian, MeeGo and LiMo platforms. Timelines are hazy for Flash Player's arrival on these platforms (the press release just says they're "expected" to support Flash Player 10.1) but the WebOS 2.0 version has already started...

HP ad gives webOS some ePrint love

HP has launched a commercial that details the benefits of its ePrint 'cloud' printing solution while demoing it on a webOS-running Palm Pre. That's pretty much to be expected, since HP does now own Palm after all, but what's a bit funny is that there's no 'magical' voodoo going on behind the scenes here between the webOS phone and the printer as the ad implies. HP's ePrint tech relies on...

HP talks webOS 2.0: better browser, Flash support baked in, Skype on the way

HP is gearing up for the release of webOS 2.0, and the new version is packed with updates for Pre and Pixi owners. Apart from rebranding as HP webOS, the most newsworthy changes from an average user's standpoint are the long-awaited arrival of both Flash and Skype. The updated webOS browser will offer better HTML5 support, and Flash 10.1 beta will be built-in. And yes, Skype is coming to webOS...
