  • Koto Player, another webOS 2.0-only app, is a new music player with Just Type integration along with an active scrubber everywhere in the app.

Koto player...*sigh* (no 2 for you!)

feel so betrayed by HP by not delivering webOS 2.x to the pre plus....

i remember everyone saying that we just needed to wait for all the good apps to come. never happened. And they also said after Feb 9th they'd all come cause people were waiting on 2.0. neither really happened. it is what it is but i was right that the apps weren't coming.

Damn, I really want OS2 and the gorilla glass.

I wonder if I can get any of them with webOS 2.0.1 on my Sprint Pre Plus.

My guess is that the long wait for 1.4.5 (AT&T) apps will feel like nothing compared to the 1.x vs. 2.x app divide starting to happen now. I'll try not to grumble too loudly! All the same: glad to hear development is moving for the new release.

why do these 2.x apps show up on my 1.4.5 device?
ncognito for example, even though it doesn't work

I agree, sanaking. I'm the creator of 'Ncognito. HP/Palm hasn't created a 'filter' for 1.4.5/2.0 apps. Even though in the app's description, it states webOS 2.0 is needed, twice. I've gotten a couple of false bad reviews because of this.

Everyone, please ensure you are installing to the correct OS, and/or contact the developer before posting a bad review of the app. More than likely, the app works perfectly, and may be an issue of HP/Palm's end. The developer shouldn't have to pay for this.

It seems like I saw a tweet yesterday from the developer of one of the other apps in the list saying he requested the app be pulled because of this problem.
