IPKs? How about a separate repo for each app? GitHub is more than a file hosting site.

And how about a short description what each app is so we don't have to open up the App Catalogue for each one of 'em?

Outstanding, Jason.

A very generous gesture and more than a lot of other devs have done.

Ignore any comments about "how" if you like. It's cool you've made a home that the public can find for these installs. Anything else is just...

GMMan's right though. The title "on github" is misleading as it's installs with no source.

I mean no disrespect, of course. As a dev it's probably the first place he thought to stash them. So thanks for taking the time to upload these for us, Jason! Having just transferred to a new device, I did more preparation for the "End of Days," and was thinking how nice it would be to have IPKs of all my apps saved in case the servers go dark.

@jason You are always welcome to post them here too. We can give you a spot to post them and you can create a spot for each.

Quite right, but as others have said GitHub was the first place I thought of for allowing all of you to download the apps.

Good idea, I just updated the readme for the repo.

I found that there are several other IPKs out on github for other apps.

It's fine to put builds up on GitHub. It's easy enough to extract the files from the IPKs. But for our purposes, it would be helpful if you use Git as source tracking, so others can fork and contribute back. Unless you don't design your apps to be open source, though if so why post them in the first place?

I wrote the apps years ago without thinking of making them open source, but since there's no app catalog anymore I figured I should share them. I didn't check in the source because I'm not particularly proud of it. I didn't write the apps with any organization in mind.

*sheepishly*

I still might peek. I'm curious to see some source examples of things I've used, even if messy. I find I learn best from examples like those. Originally clicked through thinking, "Maybe I'll see what Jason did and write something of my own finally."

Still, I understand. You should see the Matlab codes I write for work.

There's no app catalog anymore? I do thank you for making them available. I have both versions of the tire size calc app as they are the most like the one I used to use on Miata.net I believe it was.

I've done my share of "oh, I'll clean that up later" and later never comes.

The App Catalogue is still up and running. New apps come in at least once a week and updates also come from time to time. Just had 2 updates from apps yesterday.

I actually used miata.net as a requirement for those apps

I'm definitely wrong about the catalog. I think I got that notion because the only webos device I have running ATM I had to use a tool (webos dr?) to bypass the phone activation on the cell network. Now I can't figure out how to log into my profile. I think not being logged in hoses up the catalog.

Yeah, you have to be logged in to a Palm Profile.. I can never remember if you can use Impostah on a 1.x activation-bypassed device to log in to an existing profile or if you still have to use the patch available for enabling profile creation for even that to work.. I just did it on my original Pre (well, a month or two ago) so you'd think I could remember. I know you can just use Impostah on a 2.x or 3.x device.

I find it odd that you have to activate to a cell network before you can use the phones full functionality. Do other phones do this too? I think that there must be people out there that would want to carry around a phone that's not activated because they can use if at a wifi location for whatever.

Fortunately there are ways around it. Just not ones provided by Palm.

You might want to read the second part of the article starting at "To log in to an existing Palm Profile (or to create a new one)" in the link below

For 2.x.x you might find this link useful :
