Today Palm announced that it has begun accepting paid applications for the Palm Apps World starting today through a beta e-commerce program. Developers participating in the beta program will be among the first to offer Palm Pre and webOS users paid applications, and will be featured in the next update to the Apps Catalog which is set for mid September. Palm will split gross revenues from all sales 30/70 with the developers, who get to keep the lion's share of any money earned through sales. Palm said that customers will be able to use Visa and MasterCard credit cards to make purchases, it didn't indicate if carrier billing would be supported. Palm made it clear that applications must run on webOS, and not be delivered via the browser. To start, paid apps will only be available in the U.S. Palm expects to expand the developer program beyond its current beta state later this year.

App Catalog

I've always like the idea of free apps but if its gonna bring better apps to the catalog so be it. Lets see what developers have been working on. I'd personally like to have remote desktop or the ability to call from a different number just for kicks. Cool
