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.
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.
Note: Modified webOS TouchPads such as: Cyanogen (Android), LunaCE, webOS Community Edition, other independent patches, etc., that have not been quality tested by OpenMobile may produce unexpected results and result in loss of data, so use it at your risk. ACL was built and quality tested on clean, unmodified TouchPads.
