Palm App Catalog browser to submitted to Apple App Store, we sit bewildered

iPhone App Catalog browser We’d say the chances of this passing through Apple’s draconian approval process are slim, but we’re highly amused anyway. iPhone app developer tijo has whipped up something we never thought we’d see: a Palm App Catalog browser for the iPhone. And he’s submitted it to the iPhone App Store.

Audacious? Without a doubt. This wonderment of science is of course thanks to the 100% open App Catalog feeds that Palm has made available to all takers (obligatory plug: PreCentral App Gallery). Should this Palm Catalog app ever make it into the iPhone App Store, we’ll start taking bets on how long it takes for Steve Jobs’ head to asplode.

(and no - of course webOS apps won't run on the iPhone. It's just a gallery app, people)

Thanks to Colonel Kernel for the tip!
