PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For a while now, the Palm Pre and its webOS have been out and about, but the accompanying App Catalog remained remarkably empty, because Palm had not yet opened its software development kit for everyone. The SKD was leaked not too long ago, and today Palm has announced the official release of the Mojo SDK for everyone who wants to get their hands on it. It includes a webOS emulator.

Mojo SDK, is completely free and open to anyone with a valid email address.


This should encourage more developers to participate in the app development. Palm seems to be doing everything right so far, hopefully they won't screw up the approval process for the submitted apps.

From what I saw it would encourage me to develop for the iPhone and/or Android even more.

I think these may be the reasons "tryione" don't like Palm WebOS SDK:
1) Its free
2) Its available for all platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux)
3) Install any developed applications using the SDK (the developer hack, read precentral.net). No need to sign-up developer program for 99$

I think one like to pay 99$ and don't like free stuff.

I installed the SDK and looked at the documentation. It looks fairly straight forward.
