Review: YPmobile 51

by Derek Kessler Wed, 07 Apr 2010 9:21 am EDT


When Palm and AT&T are touting the coolness of YPmobile on the new AT&T Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, we’ve came to realize that it’s the exact same app you can already find in the App Catalog. In fact, we’re disappointed in ourselves for skipping over the app so many times, simply because of the name that conjured up images of super-thick books full of phone numbers and really bad ads on thin yellow paper. The free YPmobile app for webOS couldn’t be further from the yellow-paged days of yore, and that’s a good thing.

Incipio Orion Sleeve Case for Palm Pre

The Incipio Orion Sleeve Case for Palm Pre is a clean and stylish way to carry and protect your Pre. While similar in concept to Palm’s own Leather Side Case, the Orion sleeve executes more cleanly, not to mention being available in variety of colors.


Review: VLC Remote 25

by Robert Werlinger Wed, 24 Mar 2010 12:11 pm EDT

VLC Remote ($4.95 in the App Catalog) is a slick utility that allows you to control the open source VLC media player from your webOS powered phone.  It's still in its early stages, but the program shows some real promise


ZumoDrive for webOS: Cloud-Based Storage for Music and More 35

by Jonathan I Ezor#IM Sun, 21 Mar 2010 5:59 pm EDT

One of the more exciting recent developments for webOS has been the ability to access real-time online storage from anywhere, to extend the non-expandable 8-16 GB of available on-device storage for the Pre and Pixi. First, Grooveshark enabled uploading of one’s music collection for access via its webOS software, and now, technology firm Zecter has released a new webOS client for its ZumoDrive remote storage service.

It is, as mrkalel says, hot.


Review: V-Moda Vibe Stereo Headphones 18

by Robert Werlinger Sun, 21 Mar 2010 1:34 pm EDT

The V-Moda Vibe in-ear headphones combine excellent build quality with great bundled accessories. Can the great fit and finish make up for the subpar audio quality in justifying that rather steep asking price?


Review: T-Money 22

If you’re looking for a multi-purpose financial calculator, then you should look no further than T-Money. The $9.99 app by Sound Expressions features calculators for loans, savings and withdrawals, and profits and loss. Not can T-Money compute things like payments or principles, it can also show you multiple graphs of the calculations over time: a powerful tool for determining how your investment can be expected to perform in the months and years ahead.


Review: Mobi Products Protector Cases for Palm Pre 19

Mobi Products Protector Case

Most quality clip-on phone cases come in solid colors and maybe a few transparent varieties, but the Mobi Products Protector line of cases for the Palm Pre actually come in more than a dozen different designs and textures. For my time with the Protector Cases I sampled three distinct product lines, the standard Protector case, in a metallic red, the Skull Wing graphic Customer Protector, and a Dragon-emblazed soft-touch Lizzo Protector case. While I had little doubts about the protective abilities of these cases (good for a fall here or there, but not running over with a car), the finish on two of the three left something to be desired.


Review: Seidio Innocell 2600mAh Battery 76

by Robert Werlinger Mon, 08 Mar 2010 12:37 pm EST

The Seidio Innocell 2600mAh Extended Battery for the Palm Pre will add noticeable bulk - there’s no question about that. The question is this: does the substantial improvement in battery life (and I do mean substantial) make the sacrifice in form factor worthwhile?


Facebook for webOS Updated! Video and Gallery 178

by Dieter Bohn Wed, 03 Mar 2010 8:41 pm EST

Palm's official Facebook app for webOS was just updated - slimjim1219 in our forums let us know that you just need to check your updates app to get it installed.  We saw it leaked in an advertisement last week and sure enough, it's here.

The new version of the app radically improves on the previous version, which we've described as a "Facebook as Twitter" kind of client. It now allows users to fully search and view Facebook profiles, look at photo galleries, use Facebook mail, view events and upcoming birthdays, and look at your own Facebook wall and photos.

More on features, a video showing the app, and a gallery of screenshots is after the break!


Review: FriendsFlow 39

by Robert Werlinger Tue, 02 Mar 2010 10:55 am EST

FriendsFlow ($1.99 in the App Catalog) has been around in various incarnations since before there were paid apps, being one of the very first third party Facebook clients for webOS in the homebrew section. Since then, Palm has released its own Facebook App, another third party app called FriendsBook has hit, and Facebook has been updating their mobile site on a consistent basis. So that begs the question: how does the only paid Facebook app in the Catalog stack up against the competition?
