  • Yahoo now fully integrated into Synergy
  • E-mail - notification improvements, Google Apps and Yahoo Small Business now supported
  • Track scrubber in Music
  • Text messaging - forwarding and custom ringtones

In addition, the Mojo SDK has also been updated to match, and the anticipated native Facebook App is now available in the App Catalog. Functionality is quite limited right now, but like other platforms, new features are sure to be added for the social networking gurus out there. So far you can:

  • Read a list of your friends' status updates.
  • Comment on their status updates and make them as "liked."
  • Update your own status.
  • When a friend updates a photo album, you can view the album within the Facebook app.
  • Comment on a friend's photo album.

Many other webOS apps have been added recently to the App Catalog; remember you can keep track via the @PalmNewApps feed.
