Sarah Lacy over at TechCrunch recently did an interview with the founders of CitySourced about a new application in the works that allows users to post all of the “nasty” things in your city directly to your government. In this interview she pulled some interesting hints about what Palm is up to in the App Catalog.
From the video we can gather that Palm in indeed paying app developers to create quality apps for the webOS platform, so much in fact that it may be the reason why the app is release on webOS ahead of many operating systems including Android. The only info Miss Lacy got out of them was that the amount was under $500,000.
We are glad to see that Palm is staying true to the values they set in place for the App Catalog when they said they were striving for quality apps Vs the quantity of them. We won’t be seeing 97 bible apps and 327 lighter apps in there anytime soon.
