The long waiting is over. A team around the Precentral’s forum member Prenosicator has released an alpha version of a Palm Pre video recording application. It requires WebOS 1.3.1.
You will not find it in the know homebrew repositories as long as it is in alpha status. Anyway for all of you able to
root into your beloved Palm Pre the installation is as simple as drinking beer.
Kudos fly out to Prenosicator and his dev team guys. This is a very nice app, many of us have been waiting for.
