    and why?

    is any preware user also using the official app catalog.

    Well yes... I turn off the official app feeds... when I load preware I am only interested in homebrew, themes and patches... I dont want my homebrew cluttered with fart generators and such. Not to mention clicking on a source from the app catalog just launches a new card to the app catalog anyway. I load up the app catalog once a day to update my apps and see if anything new came through... then I load up preware and have a look at anything the homebrew community might have done.

    I'm not sure what you are asking, of course we use the official Palm App Catalog, right now that's the only way to purchase apps?

    So maybe you can make your question a bit clearer to everyone, so it can get the information you looking to get?

    Just a suggestion!

    not exactly Rob, u can use preware only and then when u whant to buy something official app will open automaticly. i'm using like "bluewanders" preware for homebrew and app cat for official stuff because is easier to update and to load preware is faster.
    Now preware have advance that i would like to see in app cat - black list of devs, so it's change everything

    If the catalog automatically opens to sell/install the catalog... that sounds like it uses the catalog. just saying.

    I only use Preware to access the feeds that the official App Catalog does not allow. I do not like to duplicate functionality.

    To me, the official App Catalog provides easier access to star-ratings and price, as well as reviews.

    Exactly what I do..except the beta and web feeds are on, as I mainly treat them as homebrew apps in my eyes.

    I would love to use Preware only--especially with the new filtering capability. But it is S L O W when there are 4000+ packages loaded. It is also lacking the ratings and reviews, which I find very useful.

    Preware is great for homebrew, beta, and web-only apps, however. And, of course, patches.

    Echoing jbg here - the only thing keeping me from using Preware exclusively (and having it open the official app catalog pages that I want it to) is the loading period, although that has gotten massively better with 1.0 anyway.

    Haven't I heard about a future version of Preware using db8? If Preware took two seconds or less to load up, I'd still technically use the official Catalog a lot of course, but I don't think I'd ever actually tap its icon again.
