In February 2009, Arron La's $0.99 Advanced Task Manager was one of the first paid apps on Android, allowing T-Mobile G1 users to do what was then a novel thing -- close applications. (We immediately bought a copy.) Today, the app is all but obsolete, its functionality baked right into Android's co

For Americans, the ability to blow dollar after hard-earned dollar in the Android Market is old hat -- it's been happening since early last year -- but Canada's had a rougher go of it. Rogers just flipped the switch not long ago, and now Telus has joined the party, meaning most Canadians currently

Okay, so this is quite the lag from October's North American availability, but at least when the paid portion of Palm's App Catalog rolls out across Europe it shouldn't experience the stuttering start it suffered back in the US of A. Palm has excitedly blurted out the news on its developer network b

The first paid apps are finally starting to filter into Palm's App Catalog, giving us all another great reason (after our daily caffeine fix has been properly handled, of course) to blow a buck or two every day of our lives. First up is none other than Air Hockey, an app genre that seems to be taki

The release of webOS 1.2 got all of the stars aligned for a barrage (or, at the very least, a trickle) of paid applications to start hitting the Pre, and the word on the street is that the first of those will be dropping tomorrow, October 2 -- for users in the US, anyhow (Canadians apparently need

Love the Pre? Love code? Love money? Well it's your lucky day. Palm has just announced that it will begin accepting applications for developers interested in producing for-pay apps for the webOS App Catalog.

Looks like Google is officially in the mobile app store game -- Android Market now contains paid apps. We haven't gotten the update on our G1 yet, but if you have RC33 it's rolling out now -- reboot and let us know what your first purchase is!

If you've been looking to make a little bank off that awesome flatulence soundboard you put together for the G1, take heart: Google's ready for you.
