    Thanks for your kind words.

    Don't worry though. I can take constructive criticism. I do understand the frustration that some people feel.

    I do plan to include Last.FM scrobbling.

    I had no idea either so I went to Wikipedia, and I'm still not completely sure, but I hope this at least helps...

    'Using a music recommender system called "Audioscrobbler", Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user's musical taste by recording details of the songs the user listens to, either from Internet radio stations, or the user's computer or many portable music devices. This information is transferred to Last.fm's database ("scrobbled") via a plugin installed into the user's music player. The profile data is then displayed on the user's profile page. The site offers numerous social networking features and can recommend and play artists similar to the user's favourites.'

    So... Kinda like what Pandora does but without making up words for it?

    *edit* I take that back, they call it the "Music Genome Project"

    true, you'd have to set up a payment system yourself. its true that users would be able to download the app for free, but you could make it only work for those who register with you (ei those who have paid). benefits would be that palm doesn't get a cut, but you'd lose the convenience of having your product before the eyes of everyone who uses a webOS device.

    after typing all of this, its clear that this method might be more trouble than its worth. I only asked because it seems like palm will never get their act together with regard to this API.

    Oh well, patience IS a virtue i guess...

    If you created an "activate" page, you could let people download your app all you want but until they activate it won't do anything. People would get an activation code via payment or from you for beta testing. You could keep track of whether an activation code has been used more than once and then terminate it...

    Just some thoughts

    An activation page would work for some, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be too difficult to get around if you had root access. I wonder if there is a way to block script editing or even application editing.

    Blubble have you heard anything about the music index API for webos 1.4? If they don't come out with a serious audio API by spring... well...

    this is looking very elegant

    so the pre itself doesn't support FLAC and this means no programs will be able to? That's a bummer. Of course 16gig would have been eaten up pretty quickly with this format.

    So Blubble, am I reading your recent posts correctly? Will the App be in the App Catalog when 1.4 hits?
  16. #696  
    Bubble. I'm still excited about your app, and I appreciate you updating us with your status. Thank you.

    blubble is now working on a new video player, and he expects it to hit the app catalogue sometime in the summer of 2016

    I hope you meant that as a joke. Even so... that's still kinda rude.

    If I were Blubble, I'd be offended. I guess you're lucky he's more understanding than I am.
