    Can we please get more complaints?
    I feel like we don't need BrightHouse Labs and the such flooding Palm's App Catalog.

    I thought Palm was trying to avoid this...

    Quality > Quantity please.

    In this case, it seems more like dollars over common sense, hoping people will buy more than one to follow several teams. That, or they're just idiots.

    What about the $50 charge, is it waived while the app catalog is in beta? I'd think it would be costly to spam at $50 a pop.

    funny i looked at the Palm Forum and a search for "brighthouse" brings up nothing. Do they not allow dissent there? The forums don't look exactly organized either so maybe they don't exactly have a lot of engaged users either.

    Oh and by the way, the apps suck. Really suck. I might as well have burned the $1.99 i just paid.

    Apple is belatedly taken action against these developers. It has banned a couple of developers who were gaming the store and removed their hundreds of "krapps" from the store.

    What's this App store you're talking about?

    Homebrew all the way! Pay for quality, ignore the quantity!

    In the big picture a well run, profitable app catalog, is good for Palm's and those profits fuel innovation, the hiring of more people to tackle issues current with Web OS, help develop new versions of web OS, and lots of other things that would benefit all users of Palm devices. I'm not saying don't use homebrew aps, or that any person should pay for something that they think is NOT quality. But i think you shoot yourself in the foot pitting homebrew and the app catalog against each other. That said. I've found pretty much nothing in the app catalog that interests me. Which is probably why this Brighthouse labs bothers me.

    Big fat liar.

    No, it is true. The App Store top ten and staff favorite were just generated by Brighthouse Labs staff.

    Yeah, but now I can't say "at least the Palm app catalog isn't full of useless crap".

    i just ran a diff on the source code from the different Brighthouse Labs apps. Out of all of the code, there are only 2 lines different between each app.

    Nah, not really, but I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. I haven't downloaded any of their apps, nor will I. However, if I were spearheading their dev team, I'd make one consolidated app with content downloaded and db'd based on the user's favorite team(s). You could do that, price it $0.50 more, and bet on making a lot more money. They are just giving themselves a bad name doing what they are doing.

    On a side note, I think Palm should rethink how the "Popular" tab is sorted. A lot of apps (<Insert Quiz Name Here> Quiz) have 5-star ratings, but from only 1 or 2 users. Maybe something like the way NewEgg does it.

    I see they just dumped a few more into the app catalog today. Multiplying like bunnies!

    my biggest problem is all of their "pending Krapps" are holding up other developers apps .

    that and I can't stand seeing 120 of the same Krapp sport app.. I'm also a little miffed at djit for following brighthouse with the backround swutcher

    good god yeah it is. i just logged into itunes app store and they have tons of garbage apps and pretty much everyone i clicked on had one star. and several reviews said it's basically a link to a rss news feed for the team, a link to a yahoo web page and a chat that doesn't work. Not to mention the app tends tend update a week late so the news is always old. nice. Again i hope this gets nipped in the bud.
