George Clooney's Haiti telethon gets a webOS app


As successful as some may be, single-purpose apps (like fart machines, flashlights, and tip calculators) tend to be the butt of a lot of jokes – but here’s one with a pretty righteous purpose.

With a bit of elbow grease and a downright impressive amount of haste, the folks over at Mediafly have thrown together an application specifically built to let people tune into tonight’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon. The event itself was just announced on January 15th – that means this app went from concept, through creation, and right on past Palm’s moderation process in less than a week. Consider us impressed.

Palm’s got the free application featured in the App Catalog at the moment, so go enjoy the show – and if you feel the urge to donate, you can do so right within the app. Enjoy!
