    Here is an app that shows all the web distributed apps. Open the link on your phone and press stream. A new card should pop-up that looks similar to the App Cat giving a description of an app called AppScoop. Then download it.

    AppScoop

    Also Preware will soon be able to download web distributed/App Cat/beta apps. It is in alpha testing right now.

    AppScoop shows you the list of web distributed apps and lets you download them. All you have to do the tap the app that you want to download

    I like the Feeds from the Palm Developer Center...I just put them into NewsRoom, as an alternative to having to check both the App Catalog and AppScoop repeatedly. And you can go directly to the item's download site from NewsRoom.

    It's nice that Palm is providing a mechanism for tracking these apps. However, we should keep in mind that the purpose of this is for developers to distribute apps outside of the Palm ecosystem. In other words, it will (and should) be up to individual developers to market their own apps that are to be distributed in this fashion.

    Which is of course how it was done before Apple created the App Store, and I simply can't stop mentioning how brilliant it is that Palm has come up with this strategy. Can't wait until developers pick up on how great it is that they can make whatever app they want without any sort of review/approval process.

    On the other side of the coin, how easy will it be for developers to cash in on their apps once they make them. It appears that any app that gets released as web-only gets dumped onto the url stream for free public download. I'm not necessarily saying Palm's doing the wrong thing, I'm just playing Devil's Advocate.

    Are malicious programs from these unofficial apps something to be worried about or not?

    Make sure you put just your 10 digit phone number in, no "1"... I tried it with the 1 the first time and got nothing, when I tried it without the 1 the link came through almost instantly.

    I tapped on one called "PayPal Fee Calculator", then the App catalog opened up in another card and said "This is not a valid WebOS application."

    Not any more than they were an issue when virtually all apps were purchased directly from the developer, back before Apple changed everything with the App Store.

    (Actually, not ALL apps were purchased directly from the developer. There were aggregaters who setup stores and sold apps.)

    True, I suppose I've gotten programs from random sites for my pc and Mac.

    The URL you get is one that works on the Palm to open the App Catalog app to the page where you can purchase the app.

    You do not get a direct ipkg link.
