Palm Ares Enters Public Beta, webOS App Development Made Easier

It wasn’t long ago that we heard about Palm Ares, Palm’s new web based application development for webOS. Ares is billed as a “complete set of mobile development tools entirely hosted in the browser, making it easier and faster to create apps”.


Ares uses a drag and drop interface builder removing barriers for web developers looking to get into mobile app development. It’s open to developers and it’s free to get a Palm Developer community account.  With developer account, you can login at and start work on the next big app for webOS.

Palm Ares SDK Currently In Testing Phase

Last month, we heard about Palm’s ARES development tool for webOS. As a refresher, it’s a web based development kit that allows faster development of apps for webOS. Palm is currently testing ARES with a select group of developers to help squash bugs and to seek suggestions for improving ARES. The net for end users is that ARES is aimed at providing developers with an easy entry to webOS development. This should ultimately result in more apps for you, the end user.
