    Good lookin' out. Curious though that the webos app is 5 times as much as the ios app. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

    I have been using this since last Friday on my Pre2. It is fantastic very easy to use on my windows and mac computers.

    I have been watching netflix and hulu on my phone. I am very pleased with the audio/video streaming. I can not wait for the touchpad to be released and have this app on it.

    I am able to access my linux machines via vnc on my windows machine. Remotely controlling a remotely controlled machine is not the most ideal solution but it works very well.

    I love this app!

    Agreed. If we don't buy it at this price, they might realize that less is more!
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    Don't worry about the comparison. It's still just the price of a cup of coffee. Lower prices will happen when there are a few more webOS devices around.

    The average price of a cup of coffee is $1.38

    I understand the economics and the point of my post was I think the dev could make more money at half the price. I'm hoping that the price comes down soon so the developer's app can get more downloads and users.

    Oh I didn't see the price. I was just assuming it's .99 like in Apple or 1.99 at the most. wow, $4.99 is too much I think. HP should step up and cover the cost of those apps.
  12. #12  
    Honestly for what this app does and what it could become through updates, its not worth 4.99? Is for me. We know it has to be more than IOS.we want more devs so lets show the ones that try webos is a real platform worth making apps for.

    So, anyone try this out for gaming? I realize I wouldn't be able to raid and stuff, but just for snooping around the auction house and stuff. And how is the security? Are you remoting into your own PC or going through a 3rd party server you have no control over? Worried about keyloggers on equipment that is not my own.

    For all that work the app does IMHO is a worthly price.

    How much will you pay for Quickoffice editable app for webos, that is important ,but it is just office, and compared with this one, we are talking about ?

    This is a good sign that some great apps are starting to come to webos.I'm noticing a pattern that's starting.It seems like webos is starting to get some motion and the pre 3 and the TouchPad are the reasons why.

    @akitayo,
    I *definitely* appreciate your work, but I will try and remain a contrarian in this discussion as I think I may be asking questions that others may have but are a little too "polite" to ask.

    Time will tell.

    Right now, $0 (because Google docs probably does everything I need).

    Part of my reason is because I really feel like the Pre- might not give me much screen real-estate and I'm having a hard time imagining a remoting app being useful on such a small screen. On a touchpad, this would be a different story.

    awesome. Works great iwth windows media player under windows 7 (I open it to nearly full screen as it won't work in directx mode). Sound is awesome too!

    Now trying to figure out can I use this on the go when traveling?

    Got it a couple days ago and it does work well. WiFi-only stipulation limits its usefulness but I understand why they did it.

    Great looking app. We need to support good apps like this so the developers see we have interest and will do more for WebOS. People are spoiled with the prices of apps these days. (Remember the prices of the old PalmOS apps?)

    How can a developer make any money selling a quality app for .99 for WebOS right now. If we are going to get good apps, we need to be willing to pay for them, and also, HP can help by subsidizing them until WebOS becomes a major player.

    I can't get over the fact that I always hear people complain that HP doesn't let them buy a new phone every other month like HTC does - and at the same time complain that $5 for a quality app is too much.

    I've lost much more in single poker hands. I've paid much more for taxi fares when I could've waited for a bus. I've paid more for Venti Mocha Frappuccinos.
