As the HP TouchPad broadens webOS’ footprint around the world, the webOS App Catalog will open its doors in four new countries – Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. Once people power up their shiny new TouchPads, we want them to access as many of your great apps as possible.
Here are some things we’re doing to help make that happen:
- Developers may now submit apps to the App Catalog specifically for these countries
- All free apps marked in the catalog for “rest of the world” will be made available automatically in the App Catalog for these countries, which include TouchPad apps and smartphone apps that have been tested and approved as TouchPad-compatible.
If you do not wish to make your app available in these countries, you can manually deselect them in the “My Apps” tab when you log into your account. Also, please note that at launch, only free apps will be available in the App Catalog for these countries. We plan to offer paid apps in these App Catalogs soon, so stay tuned for more details.
