Palm WebOS and Third Party Applications

Andrew Shebanow (formerly of Adobe) is now working at Palm:

The main thing I’m responsible for is third party application distribution, and although we’re fairly far along in this area, its not too late for your input to count. So let me know what you’d like to see and/or not see. Here are a few questions to get things rolling, in no particular order.

Good questions. I don’t recall seeing anyone from Apple seek feedback from the developer community on a single one of these issues regarding the iTunes App Store.

Update: Shebanow has yanked the original post:

The popularity of my post has caught me and Palm by surprise, and my boss has asked me to hide the post while management decides what they want me to do about it.

Update 2: It’s been re-posted to the official Palm Developer Network weblog.
