Palm has started limited testing of a new, web-based tool for app developers. The "Ares" development environment lets developers create webOS apps using a simple drag-and-drop interface running in a web browser. The tool was first announced in early November at the Open Mobile Summit event. A small group of third-party developers are currently testing Ares. Interested developers can request access for when Palm opens it up to more testers.

Right direction.

I think Palm is moving in the right direction. They just need to make their backup system more reliable. Losing months of contacts and other data is just unacceptable. They should be pretty solid by the time 2nd generation Pre comes out...Hopefully!!

Palm > Android

I've been wildly impressed with Palm's concept behind app development, and if they go entirely web-based (the Mojo SDK isn't exactly a model of intuitive design). This is pretty groundbreaking stuff, and feels like a chip off of the old PQA system.
