    I'm not sure what to think of this. It's nice that HP officially acknowledges PreCentral as important enough to put in its manual, but I think it's bad form to refer to a website that is not under direct manufacturer control, due to it being free to change its layout or content whenever it wants. Oh, and it also says to ask developers about a webOS version of an app if you can't find it.

    Guide here: http://www.hpwebos.com/us/support/ha...ouchPad_UG.pdf (page

    If you can’t find an application using App Catalog, try the following
    steps.
    • Make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network (see Icons in the
    title bar).
    • Close HP App Catalog, reopen HP App Catalog, and then try the
    search again.
    • On a computer, go to precentral.net. On precentral.net, do the
    following:
    • Click the apps link at the top of the page and select App Gallery.
    • Under App Catalog Apps, enter the name of the application, and
    click Search.
    • Under Web Dist Apps, enter the app name and click Search.
    • Under Beta apps, enter the app name and click Search.
    • If you find the app, click the link Download Now - webOS Link
    below the application image. When prompted, enter your mobile
    phone number. Click Send to my phone. HP sends a text message
    to your device with a link to the application in App Catalog. After
    the text message arrives, tap the link.
    •Go to the app developer’s website and confirm the app name
    (including spelling) and that the app is available for webOS.
    • If the app is not available for webOS, contact the developer to
    find out if a webOS version will be available soon.
    • If the app name you used in previous searches was not correct, go
    to precentral.net and repeat the steps with the correct name and
    spelling. If the app still doesn’t appear, the app is not currently
    available for your device through the webOS distribution
    channels. There are several reasons why this may occur. For
    example, the app may not be compatible with your device model,
    the app may not be supported in your region, or the app may be
    a homebrew app. .
    • Try looking for another app that provides similar features.

    I think it was awesome that they pointed to P|C as the go-to info location even though it wasn't 'under their control' as it were. HP also came here for about 90% of their Beta testers for not only their software, but all of their hardware. This was the place!

    I actually forgot about that regarding them getting their beta testers from here.
    Yes, this place was huge in it's day.
    Just call me Berd.
