With the Palm Pre successfully launched and sales well under way, several developers on Monday unveiled new apps for the smartphone.

The applications include Zumobi's Today Show and Sporting News Baseball apps for on-the-go news and sports updates, and LikeMe, which offers personal recommendations for restaurants, attractions, and so forth, based on your location. In addition, Beeweeb and Agile Commerce announced their plans to offer services to help developers create apps for the Pre and Palm WebOS. You can see a whole list on Palm's blog site.

These new apps join the dozen or so programs that were available in the Pre App Catalog at launch, including Pandora and Fandango. According to Palm, more than 150,000 apps were downloaded on the first day the smartphone was available.

Currently, the Palm App Catalog is in beta and the Mojo SDK is only available to a limited number of developers and hasn't been released to the public just yet. However, interested parties can apply for admission to the program now through the Palm's developer site.
