Angry Birds Rio flies to webOS devices

HP announced today that the latest installation in the Angry Birds franchise, Angry Birds Rio, is now available for download from the webOS App Catalog. The game sports 60 different levels across two different episodes, and Rovio promises to provide episodic updates throughout the rest of this year. If you’re tired of killing little green pigs, have no fear, the goal this time around is to attack angry monkeys and free other caged fowl. Angry Birds Rio is available for $1.99 on the Palm Pre, Pre Plus and Pre 2, provided that you’re running webOS 1.4.5 or later. More →

Palm to continue rollout of webOS 1.4.5 with bug intact

Palm to continue rollout of webOS 1.4.5 with bug intact

Palm confirmed on Thursday that the rollout of  webOS 1.4.5 has stalled after discovering a programming error that caused some PDK applications to crash. After releasing webOS 1.4.5 to O2 Germany and SFR in France, customers began reporting that their PDK-based applications, mostly games, were crashing. Palm halted the rollout of webOS 1.4.5, investigated the problem, and discovered that webOS 1.4.5 did not update a key system file, “/etc/fstab.” As a result, the “/media/internal drive” is viewed as read-only by PDK applications, a situation which causes the apps to throw an error when they require a storage location that is read and write-enabled, not read-only. Despite the presence of this error, Palm has decided not to delay the update any longer and is going to roll out webOS 1.4.5 in its current state. Palm confirmed that it is working on a fix but it will not be available until the next version of webOS is released. Application developers whose apps are affected by this bug are encouraged to re-write their apps to store game data in another location. Wow. More →
