Paid and free apps reach Palm Pre store


After breaking with the app delivery on Thursdays, and turning Mondays into a happy way to start the week, Palm did not disappoint this Monday. Not only Palm delivered paid apps, but also more free apps into the Catalog. Now, as you can see on the screenshot below, the app counter is at 125 apps, let the fun begin!

Today, Monday October 5th 2009, is a day that many will remember, it has been a long road, but the App Catalog starts to flourish. It began with the popular Air Hockey game by Acceleroto, around 4 PM EST, than, a few minutes later; Who wants to be a Millionaire by Capcom Interactive, Inc. These two first paid apps paved the road for what many will become to appreciate as a modest – for now – but great app store.

Windows Marketplace Update

With the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 on Tuesday one of the exciting new features is the Marketplace (app store).

It feels like windows phone users have been waiting forever for this and its long over due but Microsoft initially said it was only for version 6.5.


Windows Marketplace

This week Microsoft have stated that is defiantly coming to 6.1 as well which is fantastic news for those whose phones are not supported for the upgrade to 6.5.

The Marketplace has got some catching up to do so it will be interesting to see how many apps it launches with and also what the prices are like.

Windows apps have historically been expensive compared to other platforms so lets see if Microsoft can give Apple a run for its money.

“First, we’ll launch Windows Marketplace for Mobile with Windows phones on October 6th. We’ve also discussed following this launch with an update that will include support for Windows Mobile 6 and 6.1 by the end of the year. More specifically, we’re targeting November for phase two. In addition, this second phase will bring the PC based catalog and shopping experience, user generated app reviews, advanced key-based anti-piracy protection and other enhancements that expand your business opportunity and make it easier for a larger number of customers to find and buy your application.”
