Adding applications to Exhibition [webOS 2.1] 10

by Adam Marks Fri, 08 Apr 2011 9:38 pm EDT

This tip is only for devices running webOS 2.1 and higher

With the release of webOS 2.1, Exhibition mode has now been enabled to replace the standard lock screen when your phone is on the touchstone.  By default, there are only 3 Applications that come preloaded with webOS: Time, Photos and Agenda.  Time is essentially just a replacement for the lock screen, Photos allows you to turn your phone into a digital photo album using photos loaded on your device, and Agenda gives you a quick at-a-glace data for your upcoming appointments.  As developers start to build Exhibition functionality into their apps, you are then able to add those applications as options when in Exhibition mode.  

Once Exhibition-enabled applications are installed on your device, you just need to open up the Exhibition app () from your Launcher and you will be presented with a list of compatible apps.  Simply toggle those apps ON or OFF to allow them to be selectable in Exhibition mode.  The next time Exhibition is activated on your phone, you just need to swipe down from anywhere on the top of the screen to get that listing of apps and tap on the one you want to change to.

I only see 'sport' apps...boooo...

Search "exhibition" in the App Catalog. There are a lot of exhibition apps available.

As far a your pre- problem Uncle. I have a pre- running 2.1. As long as you have it overclocked to at least 900mhz you'll love it!

Oooooohhhhh...yay! Thank you!

These webos 2.x tips are a kick in the nuts to us Pre and Pre Plus users.
I'm just jelous :(

Is it easy and less risky to try webos 2.x on my pre minus yet?

There is virtually no risk at this point. I had no issues with my profile. sprint nav is up and running. and flash works.
I don't feel behind at all since I upgraded to 2.1 and you shouldn't either! Glad I could help xBrim!

damn ... I did kind of on purposely forget about taking the 2.1 plunge since it is my main phone.... It looks like I need to reinvestigate since all the trail blazers have bravely stormed the testing machine gun nest. I could use me some flash...

I put 2.1.0 on my Sprint Pre- but the performance was really bad. So I bought a Verizon Pre+ on eBay for $65 to do the more risky comm board swap & it is AWESOME!

I have no problem on my Pre- whatsoever, although I imagine the + would perform better. Everything is smooth and quick.
If you Go0gle "WebOS 2.1 on legacy devices" you should be able to locate the "simplified" instructions. Very easy process to endure, and afterwards you will be able to enjoy all of the 2.1 features. I won't lie I do have to do the occasional restart, but eh it is was it is. Definitely worth it!
