    There are alot of people who have had problems getting apps to load on filecoaster after 1.3.1. Good luck trying to get anyone here to help you. Sorry The consenses answer seams to be, just install preware

    for me, filecoaster just spins and spins when you tap app.

    i dont think its being developed anymore. boo.

    i dont need (or want) all the other stuff preware does.

    Just go with preware, I'm a fan of Filecoaster, but Preware's Package Manger Service is useful as it removes the app limit and other fixes with it, and the process to install an app is easy too, just one extra click.

    Or you can just install apps through Quick Install or just wait for FileCoaster to be updated.

    You can use the Preware preferences to only show applications if you want, and to hide the themes, patches and other linux utilities. Even then, you'll be able to install more applications than you can with fileCoaster, cause Preware accesses *all* the homebrew applications that are available, not just those that are on PreCentral.

    Wow, that's an interesting point of view.

    I've always considered application installers (like Preware, fileCoaster, WebOS Quick Install, PreLoad, PreUpdate, ipkg, etc) to be a means to an end (the "end" being installing applications) rather than an end in themselves ...

    Looks like it is time for me to move to Preware. *Sigh*
    Palm V -> Treo 600 (lost) -> Treo 650 -> Centro -> Pre -> Photon
