hundreds of HP employee created applications they created last year but mysteriously never released, but it turns out it was more of a small, but still cool announcement on Thursday.
Whitepages officially released an app for the webOS app catalog, taking full advantage of webOS features such as Just-Type and Synergy. Google set webOS to the list of browsers capable of using Google Docs web edit; and ScrollMotion announced they would be bringing SmashWords eBooks to App Catalog sometime in the next several months, but possibly as early as the end of the month.
As of right now there are 6779 applications in the catalog, which seems lacking because even Windows Phone 7 has over 15,000 apps -- and it hasn't even been around for a year!
Hopefully the Touchpad and Pre 3 are the hardware developers want before jumping aboard the webOS bandwagon.
