Over One Million Palm Pre Homebrew Downloads! 14
Our Palm Pre Homebrew App Gallery just clocked its one millionth download since August 19th! The actual number is higher but will forever remain a mystery, as we opened the gallery up on August 5th and, well, Homebrew actually got started way back on June 11th with the first Hello World app on June 11th. In other words: Homebrew apps are popular, Yo.
They're also graduating to the App Catalog - Translator just made its way in and another is on the way: the very popular Twitter client Twee by Delicious Morsel. Recently, Dennis Wilkins of Delicious Morsel sent us an email talking about his experience with our repository: While the app was in private beta (with an open sign up), he was tracking about 1200 unique users per day. After landing in our repo, Twee had about 5000 unique users every day.
If you're interested in submitting your app to the gallery, hit us up. If you're interested in trying out Palm Pre homebrew apps, here's how. If you want to thank somebody, thank the developers for creating such great apps and the users for providing great feedback in their related app threads in our Homebrew Forum. Now we just need Palm to come through with paid apps (this month!) and we can start thanking developers with our hard-earned.
