Tips and tricks Part 1
Since I first started this blog, we’ve covered a lot of ground:
… we’ve talked about the very basics of the Palm Pre.
… we’ve talked about some cool tricks for adding ringtones to your Pre or Pixi.
… we’ve talked about simple fixes that might prevent a trip to the repair shop or retailer.
… we’ve even talked about how to erase your webOS device when push came to shove.

My next goal is to turn you into a power webOS user! You can handle that, right? So let’s get started! This is my very first installment out of five in my “Tips and Tricks” series. Hopefully you will find these articles very helpful.  Some tips you probably know, while others are less well-known.

Palm Pre and Pixi for TOTAL Beginners!

January 18, 2010 5 comments
A while back, I wrote an article titled “How to: Get Ringtones on your Palm Pre.”  It had a lot of good stuff on there about… well, setting up ringtone! I also wrote about simple, safe, and easy fixes for the Palm Pre’s most common problems.  But as I helped beginners with their Palm Pre’s, I noticed how lot of people felt TOTALLY LOST on doing even the most BASIC functions (like copy/paste… hello?), even after having owned it for a while!
Fear not, friends, because TOTALLY PALMED is your mejor amigo. … That’s “best friend” in Spanish…… never mind.  Read on after the break to see cool videos on how to work your new Pre or Pixi.

First Six Months of Palm’s App Catalog… How’s Palm Doing?

January 14, 2010 7 comments

The first 1000 webOS apps
It’s been six months since the birth of Palm’s resurgence, and here at Totally Palmed, the numbers are in.  We all know how important apps are in the smartphone race.  Despite being only six months old, Palm’s BETA App Catalog provided us with some very decent apps, top-notch Twitter clients,and fun games. Thanks to continued tabulations of Palm’s App Catalog counts by Palm Real Reviewer Craig Froehle (@CRA1G on Twitter) and yours truly, we have some real interesting data to show you. (After you’re done with our blast to the past, check out Mr. Froehle’s article from for a look at the future!) … Here’s the basic breakdown:

– After exactly six months (1/6/10), the U.S. app catalog reached 1023 apps
– About 2/3 of those are paid, and the other 1/3 are free
– After six months of being in public beta with only select webOS developers, Palm officially launched the App Catalog and formally opened it to all app developers.

So, the question begs… how are they doing?  We’ve got all of that, including a really interesting comparison to the Android Market’s numbers, after the break.
