Status

Criteria: You must have purchased 100+ webOS apps to qualify for the closed beta.

Usage

Register Process

To register a device a highly encrypted message is sent to a secure server containing your email address, your device id number and your profile authorization token. Your profile password and credit card are not sent to the server. Your informations are protected using an industry standard RSA encryption algorithm with a military-grade 4096 bit key.

A secure verification process running on the App Tuckerbox servers temporarily decrypts your stored encrypted info to verify your account status and add the information about your accessible apps to the AppTuckerbox feeds.

Access the Feeds

After a valid registration App Tuckerbox configures the Preware (version 1.9.4 or higher) feeds to access the palm-catalog, palm-beta and palm-web feeds. The feeds are now available within the feed manager. The feeds can be enabled and disabled like all other feeds within Preware.

Apps in Preware

The applications from this feeds can now be installed like other pakages in Preware. You have access to all free apps in this feed regardless of country, carrier or device type. You can also install your previously purchased apps on all of your devices (e.g. TouchPad apps on Enyo-capable Phones).

You can configure Preware to show you all available Apps regardless of device compatibility. When you try to install an app that is not designed for your device a disclaimer message is shown, which you have to accept.
