    Isn't that list apparent in the catalogs?

    And after three years of having an iPhone (3 & 4) and iPad 1 gathering apps, the only thing that I can not currently do on my TP or Pre3 is VOIP and Dragon Dictate. And I've only had it a month and the platform is only a month older than that.

    Sure it is, but not everyone goes through the entire catalog with a fine toothed comb, like some of us do. *There are also plenty of things out there, that we might find useful, but would never actually think to go and look for. *I think most people hit the app catalog to find something, not to browse.

    You're making it sound as if being a webOS geek is odd. I'm sure that plenty of us find stalking eBay, App Catalogs and PreCentral forums quite normal.....

    Do I hear a "webOS OOORAHH!
    LOL

    Like, somewhere or other, there's an app that will use a Bluetooth car diagnostic scanner. *Until I found mention of that on some completely unrelated site, I had no idea that (a) there was any such app or (b) there was even any such thing as a Bluetooth diag scanner.

    This is done so people can make their own to match their taste and preferences. This makes your TP totally customizable to your liking. If you want those apps in particular just PM twack and I'm sure he would send them. Don't dis him for being so helpful.

    Here's a PreCentral tip that gives step by step instructions. You should be able to get nice looking icons for web bookmarks using this method. I've used it on my Pre2 but haven't yet tried it on my TP.

    Got an error when I tried to install this via Internalz Pro. Any idea what I did wrong. I downloaded the file, opened Internalz, clicked the link and received an error.

    When I get some time this evening, I'll box them up and post. Did you successfully install the CNN Money for Tablet shortcut app? There is one case that Someone had the install fail. Just want to make sure that it is working OK.

    No prob....

    I should put my son to work on this. He is currently a Computer Sci Sophomore in college. Do you think that people would request custom shortcuts for donations? I bought him a TP for his birthday. Maybe he can make enough to pay some rent..... LOL, I wish

    Yep, I installed it just to make sure it worked. DL'd .ipk, dragged to dropbox, used Gemini to pull it off dropbox, opened internalz and clicked open, preware popped up and installed it just fine. Not sure why it didn't work for someone else.

    My install via Internalz Pro also failed. I renamed the file and added the .ipk file extension and then it worked without issue.

    Doesnt work on Touchpad. You dont get the option to resize or move the image like it shows there. You can only rename it and change the link address.

    So if I sat my son down to make custom shortcuts with decent icons should I put a "donate" button in the thread? At 18 units and a little work from Trader Joe's, he needs some donations. Actually he would be re-donating to me for rent. LOL

    Give me your "wish list" here and I'll post a few of the originals tonight.

    That would be great!! Looking at your first post my wish list would include:

    PreCentral
    Bank of America
    Pandora 5

    Not in your first post:

    IMDb (Mobile version)
