webOS onTap homebrew Pivot gets a preview, coming later month

Back in April the homebrew community stepped up to take on vacancy left by HP's abandonment of the App Catalog magazine, Pivot. It's taken a while to pull together the people and expertise to make it happen, but today we got our first previews of how we should expect the new onTap replacement to look.

The onTap team has taken plenty of visual cues from Pivot. The four pages they're showing include the onTap cover, two pages that comprise a review of the Apollo Pandora TouchPad app, and an intro page for a section discussing apps available outside of official App Catalog and homebrew channels like the webOS Nation Homebrew Gallery. While Pivot on occasion touched on homebrew themes, we're not surprised - and happy to see - that onTap is going to be putting a greater focus on homebrew.

The onTap team is still shooting for an August release for the first issue, and we're looking forward to seeing what else is in store later this month. Though the homebrew subject matter of this issue is a little on the ironic side, considering that you'll need to install a homebrew patch from Preware to view it properly through the App Catalog. Need to do that? Here you go.
