Asking all Developers/Pre Hackers:

I was just talking with a friend and we came up with an idea for an updates notification, so you don't have to check updates every few days to see if there are any new updates. Maybe getting updates to run in the background every 12 or 24 hours, and then displaying a notification like a new email or sms if anything is new. ie. "2 New Updates Available" Clicking on it would launch the Updates Card.

I do have some programming experience in html and c++, and i'd like to learn about webos, but I really don't have the time right now, and I'd have no idea where to even start.

Any help would be appreciated!
