New in the App Catalog for 31 March 2010, International and 2000 apps edition

by Derek Kessler Thu, 01 Apr 2010 11:52 am EDT

App Catalog To awesome things happened yesterday. First with the webOS 1.4.1 update the App Catalog e-commerce system went international, allowing webOS users around the world to start purchasing apps. Secondly, with that update came many new apps, so many that when we pull together apps from Europe, Canada, and the US, the App Catalog now has over 2000 apps. 2013, to be specific. With paid apps available now in Europe, we imagine that the slowly-rising app total is going to accelerate now to a more acceptable clip. Speaking of acceptable clips, we got so many updates yesterday to enable international app purchases that the auto-sorting engine we use here to generate this list broke and only listed the two hundred most recent updates. So needless to say, there were a lot of updates, so international webOS users should be seeing a considerable jump in the number of available apps. Oh, and there were 27 new apps to boot. Interested in that truncated list? You know you are - it's waiting for you after the break.
