    Barely 50 here, and I've been bustin' my behind today, so you know how much sympathy I have for you
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    I have Project Macaw running on my Pre 3 now (just installed it from Preware and worked OOTB) and I must say that I love it so far It's even better than Carbon in some things (apart from the bugs in Carbon). Project Macaw and I are gonna be really close friends
    On the Pre 3 that is, on the TP I don't like Macaw. But that's a personal preference as I don't like a panel-layout (on the Pre 3 Macaw works like all the others with sliding to the side to the next panel). On the TP I will use Graphite until it's dead and then I'll hope something similiar has come by then.

    I went from Bad Kitty (Pre-), to phnx (Pre-/Veer), to Project Macaw Pre3/TouchPad. Tried a few, can't remember the names, that were full lines across, and meh....didn't care for them. I like the slot machine look I guess, and I'm not much of a gambler.

    With the departure of Carbon, i really needed a twitter client.. and discovered Project Macaw..and i really liked it.As soon i have installed it on my veer i tried to customize it for that small screen: hide tabs & toobar.. and to refresh you may ask? well, swipe forward!! a pure touch of genius! Many kudos to the developers !!! once again, webos rocks!thanks a million guys!A very, very, very happy veer user.

    I really wish someone would take the controls and stuff from the IPK or installed Graphite and make Graphite compatible with either Enyo 1 or Enyo 2 on the desktop so I could run it as an Enyo-app on my desktop...

    And that would require the developers provide permission.

    Indeed. But if there are people willing, than I'm sure he'll give permission.
    (btw, your Sparrow might also be a good candidate for desktop Enyo after the phone version )

    I'll add Taurus to the list of clients people can move to once Graphite is completely dead. If the dev added search options (which I believe is coming) I'd have no reason to fire up Project Macaw or Sparrow (sorry Arthur)

    Another thing that ticks me off very much, seeing news like this of developers like "Dots & Lines" who dropped support(theirCarbon App) for all the WebOS devices to move for greener pastures. Of course, we know that application developers have families to feed(yada,yada,yadah).....yet, I don't find this justifiable that for webos users the application was paid and for Google it will be free of charge. Not only that, but they completely turned their back on the first platform that made them who they are....I don't blame them, of course there no WebOS devices on the market, more dev leaving and those HP people aren't nothing at all for WebOS.

    I wish them well(and hope they could return someday), but its inexcusable of their part to drop WebOS and offer Google app for free.

    This one's easy to explain.

    Android offers a variety of ad networks to make revenue while giving away the app for free. All the ad networks that once supported webOS (well, the one that did) dropped support last September after HP announced they were discontinuing webOS devices.

    That doesn't make any sense. That means all paid Android apps can become free too as they only have to use ads. You're thinking a bit too easy, digitinary.

    As a mobile dev myself in my spare time and someone that manages developers that develops sites and mobile apps for large businesses by day, your thinking is actually the one that's a bit easy. A lot of evaluation goes into whether to release your app in any of these ways:

    1. Ad-Supported, Free
    2. Paid
    3. Paid with In-App Purchasing
    4. Free with In-App Purchasing
    5. Free, Subsidized through Sponsorship
    6. Other

    Depending on the type of app it is, the current market competition, the user experience (does the developer/company want ads taking up space?), the return on investment (instant vs. residual), and plenty of other factors, that's how a developer makes that decision.

    The logic that "all paid Android apps can become free too as they only have to use ads" is far too simplistic and misguided to take seriously. I'm quite aware of how the business end of the market works, thanks.

    That was only based on your statement.

    And I also know how the business end of the market works given that's my study and job, thanks.
