    So, I have a couple of ideas for my Touchpad app: Glimpse. But before I proceed, I want to do a quick poll to get a general feel for the webOS crowd. Please vote accordingly. No trolling please

    It s my most beloved app in webos. Even if I have the iOS version on the iPad (the "devs cut version"), the flow on webos is just different.

    I have it on webOS and had my friends buy it too. Works great and is ingenius.

    Bought it for iPad and opened it today for the first time. To be honest, it looked ugly and was not helpful for what I wanted to do.

    Long live Glimpse on webOS!

    I call my TouchPad my "Glimpse Device" - do I need to say more?

    Even app freezes, forgotten credentials etc can't keep me from being a 24 hr Glimpse addict ... :P
    Cheers, Vince

    Basically, I want *everyone* to have the app . So, I'm trying to figure out the best way to accomplish that. So, some of my possible ideas include making a free version for geo-restricted regions, price reductions, paypal transactions, "name your price" deals, promo codes, e.t.c.

    Don't know if you know this, but there is a Developer's Cut of Panes. If you haven't emailed me, you need to email me to get instructions to unlock it.

    Glimpse would be my favorite webOS app if it would retain the settings - I know it doesn't happen to everyone, but having to re-set it up every two days makes it unusable for me. Could that be something you could add in? Save to a db or something? I'd love to be able to use it again...

    Glimpse is one of those apps that I think people don't know why they should get it.. If they don't already have it.. The price is something like 5 dollars..

    If I buy it would it work on my pre3 & my touchpad.. (my pre3 is in the mail currently)

    I'm a huge believer in being able to run 2 apps at the same time and seeing 2 apps at the same time.> This is something that Glimpse does that very much interests me.. I brought up on the main page that I would like to watch videos while playing chess at the same time..

    I'm not sure if that is possible through glimpse.. I don't fully understand the widget thing either.

    I think my brain confuses me sometimes.. I look at the main screen of webOS and still can't understand why I can't put a favorite app outside the dock onto the main screen.. I mean, why not... just doesn't make sense.

    and whats the point of being able to run 2 apps at the same time if you can't view two apps at the same time right? So... That's my rant...
    But in the end.. Glimpse is something that very much interests me! and I iwll probably buy it once I get the pre3

    There is a 'Glimpse' app for the Pre3?
    Pre3 (AT&T meta-doctored to ROW) webOS 2.2.4 build 3175
    TouchPad WiFi (32GB) - webOS 3.0.5 build 86
    App Catalog (US) - Vodafone (India)

    Treo 180 > 270 > 600 > 650 > 680 > Pre+ > Pre2 > Pre+ > Pre3 & tPad

    No idea.. IS there? .. I guess I partially assumed and hoped in my questions

    Do you really think the screen's big enough?
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Nope. Glimpse isn't available on the Pre 3. it's not practical on a small screen

    I can see how some people might see it as impractical, but I think I would like it. Especially if it could be used on the Touchstone.. have weather up & Twitter up as it charges.. or something like that... I would dig.

    I definitely see how the screen is smal and people might consider it impractical though.. But agh, maybe i'm weird.

    I am a big fan of Glimpse. Gives me weather,stocks,clock,a picture of my favorite animal and my read-it-later list which works really well. The basic layout survives the occasional reboot. Do wish I could figure out how to change the weather for Sunnyvale,CA shown at the bottom to a place more of my choice.

    What do you mean by bottom? The 'Ticker'? If so, you can change that from the ticker prefs
