Palm Pre: Developers, Submit Your Paid Apps!

Developers who want the Palm Pre to feature their paid applications are in luck.

Palm said today it’s accepting webOS applications – both free and paid – for consideration to be in the Palm App Catalog. The company will launch that e-commerce beta program in mid-September.

Chosen apps developers will be able to charge a one-time download fee and will receive 70 percent of revenue generated through apps sales.

The e-commerce base will be limited to the United States until Palm expands it.

Other criteria from the Palm blog include:

  • Apps should be useful and engaging to users.
  • They need to have an appealing design and user interface aligned with Palm UI guidelines.
  • They are written specifically for webOS and not delivered through the browser.
  • They leverage webOS platform and device capabilities, for example, notifications, multitasking/background processing, location services, accelerometer.
  • They have acceptable performance and response time on the device; apps with slow UI response or sluggish performance will be rejected. Applications that consume excessive power on the device will also be rejected.
