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...

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 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

HP is holding a big webOS shindig tomorrow, and we're hoping that means the release of webOS 2 for the original Pre, Pre Plus and Pixi is imminent. Why? 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...

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 exc...

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.

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...
