Palm brings paid-for apps to UK

Paid-for apps have been available through the US App Catalog since October, and there are around 600 currently available.

While the opportunity for developers to monetise applications is not new – Apple, Android and Microsoft offer similar services – the speed at which they can get their innovations online, promoted and sold using App Catalog is unique, according to Palm.

“The general app catalog model is not new, but what we’re doing with it is,” says Chuq Von Rospach, Palm’s developer community manager, in a blog post.

“We offer greater freedom and choice of how to get your applications to market and unparalleled control to promote and grow your business. For developers looking to make money, it’s all about speed, promotion, and reacting to customer feedback.

Our platform gives you greater access to customers and faster cycle times to make higher-quality, compelling applications… We urge you to get started now so you can get the earliest access and be among the first to get paid for your apps in Europe,” he concludes.
