Does Palm have any "click here to see my app in the app catalog" graphics? Apple provides a standard mini-banner graphic so users know that they click there to pull up the app directly. Would be very handy for promotion outside the App Catalog, and something recognizable to users as an "oh, clicking here will pull up this app in the app catalog" button type thing.

That is a good idea! I'll work on some designs.

I do a lot of graphic design and I would like to help, but some more info would help me to design something.

1-A) What are the dimensions of this standard graphic that is given by apple? I dont think I have seen this graphic... Or at least I cant recall seeing it.
1-B) Should there be a large, medium, and small version? If so, what should these dimensions be?
2) Should we use a standardized color pallet?
3) What font(s) should be used... Maybe the the default font in WebOS? Maybe just a helvetica type font?

I built a service to handle html links to applications.

You link like this

http://setuphelp.hobbyistsoftware.com/w ... remotefree

If you click on that from your Pre/Pixi, the app catalog will open

If you click on it from a normal browser, you'll see a page that offers to send a link to your email.
You can then click on the link in your email to open the store.

Feel free to use it for your apps too!

I really like these. Hey Chuq, any of these "blessable" by Palm? I'd love to have an official standard to start promoting with.

My preference would be for graphics no more than 320 pixels wide, so it fits in a single-column web page layout that's easily viewable on handhelds.

I'll work on that. That was part of my plan, but we've been busy with CES and the new rollout, so I'll get back to this.

Thank you. I have been holding off on releasing any PSD files until a palm official commented on it.

The graphic is cleaned up and I reworked it a little so the PSD is easier to edit. It actually looks a little sharper now and a bit more vivid.

So far it only contains 4 layers though I may add pre made colors and styles later. The current layers are as follow:

4. Text - "Find it" (This is a rasterized text layer to ensure the same font settings from system to system.)

3. Logo - Palm (I made the logo cutout onto the layer below it so it will match the buttons color.)

2. Button - Base (The buttons style is contained in this single layer. You can change the buttons color, gradient, drop shadow, ...ect from here.)

1. Background (You can change this to fit your website or leave it transparent if you wish.)

Here are some examples of me just applying a different gradient style while maintaing the same gradient settings. (I am a fan of B myself)

A. Radial Gradient
Image

B. Linear Gradient
Image

C. Reflected Gradient
Image

Although this PSD is mostly ready I am not sure Palm would want a PSD version flying around the internet. Having the option to change the way the button looks can be fun and all but it is also important to maintain a standard look and feel.

@ DougReeder - That shouldn't be a problem.

@ WebOSdev - I look forward to hearing from you and Palm.

I like the one with the linear gradient, not sure about the Palm logo though, I think I'd vote for the App Catalog icon instead of the Palm logo on the left of the graphic. Can you whip up a graphic with the App Catalog icon so we can compare both?

Thats what I wanted to do in the first place but I could not find any high res images of the app catalog icon. I would be more then happy to to try this out if palm would be kind enough to provide me with a higher res image, vector, or eps image (without the circle under the bag if possible). Its best to work with higher res images then a lower res because of the freedom it gives. If I need to cut out or edit the image in any way it is best to do it at a high res and then downgrade the size to remove any jaggies or mistakes. So a higher res image would be much appreciated... Please. ;)

I really like "B", too. Would like to see Palm adopt it soon. It'd be great for consumers to see a standard image to connect to an app in the catalog.

@jdforsythe - thank you

just wait for the word the word to officially release everything. we need a couple different sizes though and maybe a grayscale version.

I haven't forgotten. If you don't hear from me early next week on this, someone track me down and kick me in the knee.
