Today Palm announced the launch of its Ares project. Ares is a browser-based developer environment for webOS. It will allow developers to write applications from a browser rather than desktop-based developer tools. The project had been available to a limited number of developers after being demonstrated in November. Today marks its wider availability to those interested in developing for webOS. Palm hopes that by offering this browser-based tool, it will entice more developers to create applications for webOS. During its recent quarterly earnings call, Palm noted that there are now approximately 800 applications available to webOS devices in the Palm Apps Catalog, which lags the competition.

which lags the competition

it also lags the competition in the number of months / years it's been launched. do new OS's need to launch with 100,000 apps to be considered competitive these days? i know you were just stating a fact, i guess i'm just angsty that the app count is people's beef with webOS. 🙂
agreed. the os is easily the cleanest and smoothest in the industry and i cant wait to see it fully blossom.

Keep em coming Palm

I love webos my only gripe is the apps and the build quality. The Pre never ceases to amaze me with how well it works and breezes though multitasking. I'm hoping this is the icing on the cake to get the app store off the ground.
