Okay, forget what I said yesterday about not having too many apps for the Palm Pre. About ten minutes after writing that post, I happened upon the PreCentral Homebrew channel! Now, they certainly don’t have as many apps as the iPhone, or Blackberry Storm yet, but the app pool is getting deeper and deeper!

Anyway, after that little bit of geeky awesomeness, you can download the WebOS Quick Install tool from PreCentral.net
Once installed, you can easily install any one of 140+ Homebrew apps from PreCentral.net as well as any other sites that pop up!
