- An amazing operating system needs more apps!
The HP Touchpad was released to the market in 2011, and was simultaneously praised and criticized by both technology journalists and consumers. Over the following months many of the shortcomings were addressed, with the exception of one very significant issue – the selection of apps. Although the HP App Catalog contains thousands of apps available for purchase and free to download, a number of high profile apps are missing, and the premature cancellation by HP of webOS hardware production pretty much ensured that those apps would never be made available for webOS.
What about Dual-booting? As a workaround, many Touchpad owners have resorted to installing Android on their devices, dual booting into Android when they wanted to access unavailable apps, then returning to webOS for its unique user interface, powerful multitasking features, and its impressive Synergy email client, which even now remains superior to those from iOS and Android.
- OpenMobile ACL for webOS
PIC would like to announce the impending arrival of a better solution. We introduce to you OpenMobile Application Compatibility Layer, ACL, a groundbreaking technology from OpenMobile World Wide that allows Android apps to be purchased, downloaded and run on non-Android devices. You may have heard that OpenMobile had been working on a version of this software for the HP Touchpad and even seen a video of an early proof-of-concept version running in a webOS emulator. However, due to all the disruption related to the cancellation, prolonged indecision, and eventual sale of webOS, this project was mothballed and remained unfinished. But now, with your support and contributions, PIC is going to change that. We are currently working with OpenMobile to complete ACL for webOS on the HP Touchpad. We are excited to soon bring to you access to Android app ecosystem with ACL for webOS.
- OpenMobile AppMall
Upon purchase and installation of OpenMobile ACL for webOS, you will have access to an entire app catalog through the OpenMobile AppMall. The AppMall is automatically packaged with ACL for webOS and acts as a single destination for you to browse, search, and find Android apps to download on your HP TouchPad. Find the OpenMobile AppMall icon upon completion of ACL for webOS installation and click to start downloading all the apps you have been waiting for!
