The webOS App Catalog isn't quite as much of a bustling hive of activity as Apple's App Store, but it's going to change, as HP's CTO Phil McKinney, said "employees have responded to the developer challenge with more gusto than anticipated -- flooding his inbox with around 500 new apps. We're in the final stage of selecting "best app" winners."

There're around 3,400 apps in the Catalog right now, so these newly-developed apps will comprise a significant chunk once added. With more users now running webOS 1.4.5 and PDK-based apps and games (like Need for Speed Underground and Assassin's Creed) appearing, Pre and Pixi users should have a nice crop of new apps to choose from in the coming weeks.
