Thanks for the advice. It's more for improving my own development skills and it would never be a commercial project. We don't have many webOS users in our small country. I would be surprised if there would be 20+ people using the app to be honest.

API doesn't change much, it's just the most convenient app when you get around by public transport a lot here in NL.

@digitinary: In that case, go tell that to the guy who makes MojoWhatsup 'cause I haven't heard you there...

Btw, there is an open API for it so don't go and say these things without even looking at it.

@Herrie: +1

@Misj: Well, the Pre 3 FB app is in need of a replacement so Enyo 2 would be the best to start with and Enyo 2 apps run fine on the Pre 3.
That was the purpose of this thread. To find out if people would be up for a new facebook app, and if there are any willing developers out there.

Search the forums for App Tuckerbox and follow that instructions. Will work for any Touchpad app you've installed/bought.
