New Version Just Release - 5 October 2009

Includes patch installation and recovery
Message board enhancements, such as avatars
Cleaner looks and better categorization




UPDATED TO VERSION 2.4.0!

This application is like a homebrew app store. It is called PreLoad.


With "PreLoad" you can download and install applications OTA from our repository and external feeds.



You can also download ringtones, sounds and wallpapers directly from the repo too.

Anyone can use the upload link at the top on Pimp My Pre to share their sounds, apps and images. After we approve them (usually around 6PM every evening), they will appear on everyone's Pre for download.

Applications have been moved to WebOS Group. (http://www.WebOSGroup.com).

The updated app also has an improved message board for quick messages to the community. You register once, log in, and type away. The board auto-refreshes and you can click on a message from anyone to reply to them.

Categorization wast he major change, with all of the apps categorized. We laos have an improved rating and comment system. In addition, we have previews of the applications if they have screenshots in the feed.



Finally, the bottom button, called fileurl, is a text field where you can put in ANY url to a file and download it to your Pre. If it's an mp3, it will go into the folder called pmpringtones; a wav file into pmpsounds; an ipk will get installed and a jpg will go to your downloads to be available for your photo app.

The photos you download will be immediately available by your photo app for use as wallpapers.

We have designed PreLoad so that when updates are available, the app will know and you will be prompted to download the file and it will install itself. No more connecting your pre to the PC for apps or updates! It als will tell you when you have updates of any other homebrew app available.

There are 2 known issues.

1. If you put a bad url in Fileurl, it will keep trying to find it. You'll have to close and re-open the app.

2. It copies photos just like the image app Palm has, so we put the copies you don't need into a folder called tmp. When you hook up in USB mode, just delete the images from that folder.


Remember - all these apps everyone puts out are BETA. This is too. You use beta apps at your own risk.



EDITS PLEASE READ

Speical Note! This is not meant to compete with the App Catalog. It is meant for delivery of apps that are in Beta for people to test. When the developer wants to, they can remove their app and submit it to the App Catalog. We view it is a Bet testing ground for future WebOS applications. Work out the bugs with the community before you submit it to Palm.

THIS APP AND SERVICE IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, FREE!

When you contribute, you'll notice an entry for ad code. If you have a google adsense account, a donation button, a link you want to post - along with your contribution - we are working on getting that to display for you. With google adsense - do not use the mobile ads, just a regular ad. You may be able to make a little ad money, get a donation, or link to your own site for promotion and more info on your app.

Thanks!

The latest versions can be downloaded from WebOS Group because I can't seem to post the new ipk.

http://webosgroup.com/2009/08/18/preload/

Latest update supports the i[kg service and the installation of rooted applications.
Board also refreshes even when minimized.

the ipk name doesn't matter - it's v 1.3

The search has to match something or there will be no results. When you click a button, give the list a second to fill.

Are you clicking on Fileurl? You have to put a valid URL in there.

Search wallpapers for Flower.

Hmm, I don't know - never tried that one. Let me know how it goes. All our beta testers were fine but they were on EVDO.

Yah the Wifi part im pretty sure is a bug. Doesnt work at all but no problems and search results come up instantly on EVDO. Lets see if other people get that too so i know its not just me (and the wireless, but i could view webpages fine on the pre thru wifi).

Out of curiosity, how hard would it be to link this into existing pre wallpaper sites (assuming we have their permission). For example:

idesignpre.com

I ran across a sound or two that wouldn't load. Maybe in a future version have a button to report a dead link that flags it for your review or something? Otherwise, very impressive stuff.
