I had other plans for this article tonight, but as I mentioned earlier, there were a few new releases this weekend, rounding the App Catalog off to an even 35. So, I thought it would make sense to take a look at one of these new apps.
I have to admit that I am not terribly interested in social networking. Email is usually enough for me, though there are a few sites which I do find to be particularly enjoyable or useful. One of those sites is LinkedIn, a social networking site for business connections. As much as I enjoy LinkedIn however, [...]
Open Table is pretty similar to Good Food, which we looked at yesterday. Like Good Food, just enter your current location (either by city name or using the GPS). Open Table will then pinpoint affiliated restaurants in your area, which you can view either on a map, or in a list view.
We are going to quickly tackle two apps in one tonight. I was planning to bring you a look at SplashData’s SplashID, the only secure information manager available for the Palm Pre. Unfortunately, I had terrible problems with SplashID on the Palm Pre and could not get it to load at all. Every time opened [...]
One of the complaints I heard (and voiced) about the Palm Pre before its release was the lack of support for PalmOS apps and games. It felt like Palm was missing an opportunity to feature an enormous, ready-made library of apps. Additionally, with the large (but admittedly shrinking) army of devoted Palm users, it seemed [...]
I think it is no secret around here that I am a pretty big fan of Sudoku. I have explored many Sudoku options for various mobile platforms, and even a number of alternate variations on the theme. For those of you who are new here, Sudoku is a classic Japanese puzzle game, in which you [...]
I am not even a third of the way into my Palm Pre App Catalog series, 30 Apps in 30 Days, and already I am starting to feel its obsolescence. You seem I learned earlier today of a shadow app catalog. This unofficial app catalog for the Palm Pre is already stocked with over 75 [...]
Yesterday, we started our two part look at movie listing apps on the Palm Pre with Fandango. Today, we will wrap that up with a look at Flixster. To be honest, Flixster and Fandango are pretty similar apps, with one giant difference. With Fandango, you can actually purchase tickets straight from your phone. Flixster does [...]
First impressions are important – and the Palm Pre makes a great first impression. It’s small, light and fits nicely in the palm of your hand. The screen is bright and easy to read in nearly all lighting conditions. Data downloads on the Sprint network were fast and my Gmail account delivered email nearly instantly [...]
Shuh. Finally! Palm has finally sunsetted its much outdated and overly much long in the tooth PalmOS in favor of the Pre’s new WebOS. Now, all it has to do is convince over 30,000 PalmOS developers (who have created over 100,000 PalmOS apps) to embrace the new mobile operating system and develop (or port) their [...]
Palm’s keynote address is going on right now at CES 2009. So far they’ve spent some time talking about the background of Palm and a new webOS as well as introducing one new handheld – the Palm Pre. This device has a 3.1″ screen with 320 X 480 resolution, touch screen, center navigation button, EVDO [...]
