    in less than 2 weeks the community downloaded more than 557,178 apps.

    it is very interesting to know the profile of the common downloader.

    here is an idea of a survey:
    assuming you downloaded an app in the past two weeks, which item describes you best:
    1. i'm a palm pre developer
    2. i'm a palm pre owner
    3, i'm both an owner and a developer
    4. none of the above

    Huh? Who else would be downloading the apps if someone wasn't a developer or owner of a Palm Pre? o_o

    2. But of course I get into the homebrew thing and apply hacks and mods. Eventually I would like to be able to teach myself some programming and develop for the Pre.

    Wouldn't a poll work better for this thread? Jus' sayin'

    I think I'd fit into 3. I've been busting my hump trying to mess with the phone as much as possible and learn the developing code as well as theme-ing the hell out of it.

    Somebody who wants one, can't get it yet and wants to try the programs out in the emulator. ie Me!

    "who downloaded 557,178 apps?"

    Ok, I confess. I downloaded 557, 064 times.

    PreCentral has well over 216,000 members and that number is growing by thousands each day.

    There are about 110 different developers with Homebrew apps currently.

    There are probably at least 1,000 developers registered on PreCentral.

    So 95%+ of the half million downloads are by regular Pre owners.

    If we added a poll to this thread, I think your numbers would be skewed towards the developers because they seem to be much more active in their posting.

    Some one who has installed the emulator wants to check out WebOS and its associated apps.

    The WebOS emulator is great for running home brew apps. What it is not so good for is debugging them.

    (not in order of downloaded)
    FileCoaster: There is no reason not to have this on your phone
    Twee: pretty good twitter app.. better than tweed
    Music (Remix): upgrade over the original
    Blocked: I love this game.. endless hours of mindless puzzles to break
    Accuweather: Always have to have the weather
    Checkbook: Im horrible with money and this program is very basic and helps me keep track of my daily stuff
    Breakout/Solitaire - These games are ok. Breakout still lags and Solitaire is hard to control with touch
    Dot Game: Hard to hit the right lines some times (I dont have fat fingers either)
    Internalz: Gotta have the file manager
    Shopping list: Sometimes I get stuck making the run to the store and I always can remember the crap I want to eat and never the stuff we actually need.. this helps heh

    A bunch more have come and gone since then but these made the cut so far
