Palm developer program set for December lift-off

Company, which is playing catch-up to Apple with its apps store, will open its WebOS developer program in December.

Palm said Tuesday its WebOS developer program will open in December with an "unparalleled level of transparency" in a not-so-subtle dig at Apple.

The company, which is playing catch-up to Apple with its applications store, kicked off its App Catalog beta program on Tuesday.

Among the key details of Palm's developer program:

• A 70/30 revenue split. (Palm gets 30 percent.)

• A $99 annual fee. That fee is waived if you submit an open-source WebOS app.

• The company will review every application and developers will pay a fee of $50 for each app.
