Default Make an App for the Palm Pre

I would love it if someone could develop an application for Boxee on the palm Pre. Thought the two would make a great fit considering they both use open source development. Not sure what all the Iphone app for Boxee can do but here is what I'd like to see for a Pre app.:

1. Allow the Pre to work as a remote for Boxee software with the full QWERTY keyboard. similar to the Boxee Box remote.

2. Use it as que and feed manager. Use the browser funtions of teh phone to add to the Boxee que and feeds. Also use it to update your profile and follow your friends.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that someone smarter than me could put this together. Love the Boxee software, i'm addicted and Can't wait for the Boxee Box to release. Keep up the great work!

I would like to second this request. Whoever is interested, a WebOS app only really needs to be coded in HTML/CSS/JS. The public SDK which offers a virtual enviroment for the platform is available at Also Project Ares which allows you to build an app straight from your browser.

Also if you are more inclined to code in C, the Pre is now capable of running native applications coded in C. For building in C/C++ there is no official development kit out to the public yet, but the open source homebrew community has their own version readily available, here
Boxee Beta rev 10261 (was10063 and 9816)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane (overclocked to 3.0Ghz)
Corsair 2GB of DDR2 RAM XMS2-6400
MSI Radeon HD4550 1GB DDR3
Windows 7 64bit
Sharp LC32D44U over HDMI 720p resolution
Onkyo HT SR600 Audio receiver over Optical SPDIF
