Palm's App Catalog now stands at 1700 apps
We're starting to get close to the one year anniversary release of Palm's rebirth with webOS as things are beginning to take a twisted turn for the long time smartphone company. Palm's App Catalog had some humble beginnings with the limited amount of apps made available for the platform at its release, but now the tally comes in at 1700 applications. Still not even close to the levels of its competitors, Palm has been steady in getting apps released as it totaled in at over 1500 just a month ago. Despite the decent amount applications, developers might have a difficult stance on continuing the fight for Palm as the company faces a long road ahead in getting themselves turned around. We've seen some nice looking games being developed for the platform, but it's going to take a lot more in keeping them in contention – rumors about a potential new handset in the future may give them the push required to turn their fortunes around. Undoubtedly 1700 applications might be garnered as a small milestone, but it's still unclear if the long time company might be still floating around as the next pinnacle is reached.

Although this is a great milestone for Palm there company is on a down hill slide the great strengths of Web OS are a little to little a little to late if they had released it about a year earlier they may have had a fighting chance but with there stock being devalued and selling for less than 5 bucks a share I would say that Palm is a dead horse

What issues do you speak of and are they more than any other manufacturer with any other device?

i go through the app catalog about every other day and rarely find any good apps. I could care less if palm just reached their millionth app... until they start putting out some good quality apps, I might have to go back to my hero.

I feel bad for palm. They're sinking like a pile of bricks. This reminds me of the zune HD marketplace for apps/games, and how they're all free just so there's something for ppl to download. Palm is goin down like the damn titanic. Can anyone save them?
