    Well, it looks to me (although I could be wrong) that Preload is based directly off FileCoaster. I use FileCoaster for most of my installing needs, although PreLoad has one function that I can't get FC to do: you can copy/paste a wallpaper, and it's instantly usable on the Pre.

    S I D E B A R!!!!!!!


    Ok I have a question I just got a palm pre and i'm really inexperienced with doing all this technical stuff but I saw this prebrew installer thing so I downloaded it onto my computer and everything is running fine and i put the app mynotifications on my phone that was simple but now it seems as though i can't get any of the sounds for my original notifications to work and the mynotifications app isnt working either so what do i do i'm stuck?!?! And also i'm planning on deleting prebrew will that damage the computer?
    :Answers and help would be very much appreciated.

    Really? This old debate again?

    Poll on who was out first and had the first functionality that was copied.
    Sheesh.

    No matter - PMP Sounds V3 will give much more rooting-free access and end this silliness.
    We're all Pre owners trying to make a community. Sorry if we don't buy into the sites owned by large corporations trying to make more $ and aren't really interested in a community if it doesn't produce dollars.

    Haven't you ever googled your Pre Central submissions?

    See how many sites they show up on?

    Any reason why the people that run the forums have smartphoneexperts.com addresses?

    http://www.smartphoneexperts.com/

    That's why!

    3 guys against a monopoly - I like our odds!
    PreLoad rocks - if it's not used - that's a poor thing for the Pre community because it provides a needed service. Sorry if it doesn't up the profits of these affiliate marketers.

    Well, simple solution, if you don't like the site, then stick to your own. As for me, I have no problem visiting a site that is sponsored by an accessory store. It hasn't affected the content one bit, and the forum has never been censored or anything like that, even if someone doesn't like a SmartphoneExperts product. I've been on here for a long time, and quite frankly, I trust the integrity of Dieter et al., so making accusations about it being biased or being a monopoly just because it has a sponsor is ridiculous. Hint: there's a reason it's grown from a single PDA focused site to a large network of sites, and no, it's not just because it has a sponsor.

    OK, that's not my point. My point is that WHY does it have to be US versus THEM?

    Every time we come up with something this happens.
    When others post apps, it's fine. When we do, it's PMP vs what's on PreCentral.
    Im not being all Rodney King'ish and asking "Why can't we all get along" but, really, isn't PreLoad a good app for everyone?

    Why the competition? We're all in it to make the Pre better to use! Right?

    I could care less who copied who honestly.

    Wake up people.
    This, however, I take exception to. Smartphone Networks is not a "large corporation', simply a company that does what they do very well. That's why its communities are loved and relied on, and contributed to, by many worldwide. Crackberry, TreoCentral, PreCentral, AndroidCentral, NokiaExperts, and The iPhone Blog all have built repectable communities.

    I don't know what you mean by "and aren't really interested in a community if it doesn't produce dollars" especially considering the various posts we've done. PreCentral covers stories on WebOS-Internals hacks, Palm rumours, Pre news, and does the PalmCast for the benefit of the community.

    Umm, I'm not quite sure what you mean here. Last I checked PreCentral does not repost uploaded files to other websites.

    Really? You're really gonna go there?

    PreCentral is part of the SmartPhone Experts community network. That's never been hidden. At the bottom the website there's links to recent stories from the other communities. Occationally there's even "Best of Smartphone Experts" posts.

    Sure, Smartphone Experts does sell phone accessories. It's a natural fit, and they do a good job with it. Especially when they can offer accessories people want at cheap prices (ex./ Touchstone for $39.95).

    Take a look at similar Palm websites: PalmInfocenter, MyPre, PreThinking. They all have have stores. It's just the natural fit and doesn't make their forum communities any less valid.

    Not to sound pretentious, but currently PreCentral is the place for homebrew apps. When a app comes out of no where and does something similar to an existing app, I agree its the users choice which they wanna use, but it's only natural for people to wonder which people find easier to use, and how they compare feature-wise. I don't believe the original point of this thread was to insult either software, just compare the 2.

    Yea, people shouldn't bash one software for another, I agree with you on that. Though if I'm not mistaken in your earlier above posts, you somewhat bashed the PreCentral community and its motives.

    Sorry - tried to reply on Treocentral and couldn't.

    I didn;'t mean for you to take offense, but you missed the point of ehat I was saying.

    When someone else posts an app, this community tests it and it's all ok. When PMP does one, it turn into this.

    Check the history - you'll see it.

    If you don't care about who copied who - why would anyone else? Why have a poll about who is better?

    I like the work you produce Jason. It's good stuff.
    On PMP, we haven't said anything negative about Pre Central. We have sent people here! But we have also not tried to compare or make it a competition.

    Do you see my point?

    I've looked at the internal source code of both apps. There has been no copying from one to the other as far as I can see.

    Other differences -

    It's a click rather than a copy/paste.

    I had to put off development to help my buddies with PreLoad, but I'm on track to letting you change sounds for individual actions (email, sms, etc.) Without rooting or changing Palm code.

    When we have PreLoad's bugs worked out, I can get back to it.
    It's my pet project.

    Sorry for picking at the scab of what appears to be open wounds here....I actually didn't realize that this was an old debate.

    I was not trying to accuse anyone. Someone asked about the differences, and perhaps I should have said "I used fileCoaster first, so I usually default to that one (plus it links directly to the Homebrew forums on PreCentral). The exception is for wallpapers, because PreLoad has that additional functionality".

    I think you can copy/paste the URL into either fileCoaster or PreLoad and download the mp3. You can then go into "Sound and Ringtones", hit the plus sign, and add it as a ringtone, as you would with any song.
