New in the App Catalog of 09 March 2010

App Catalog Hey, look at that, new apps! Yeah, new apps make us smile. Especially when the list of new stuff includes stuff like the bible translated into Klingon or a fantastic homebrew graduate like podcatcher drPodder. It’s stuff like this that makes us laugh (because we're giant geeks) or proves useful that makes up for things like the “quotes” apps that we see so much of. For what it’s worth, don’t worry too much about the App Catalog being overtaken by this stuff - we’re not alone. While you won’t find Apple and Android patting Palm on the back and saying “It’ll be okay, trust us,” they’ve lived through the proliferation of less-than-useful apps as well. How do you think Apple got to more than 140,000 apps? It wasn’t sheer willpower, we’ll say that much. Regardless, we’ve got new apps, and you’ve got a list after the break to check out. Do it.
