Preware Homebrew Documentation is a overview to using Preware Homebrew and is released by Rod Whitby.

This application is an easy to browse set of documentation on how to install the Preware HomeBrew onto your webOS device and gain access to the HomeBrew applications, patches, themes and overclocking.

This application has a lot of interest at the moment, with the uncertainly that continues with webOS under HP control. If HP does discontinue webOS as they did with their devices (not likely at this stage), the HomeBrew community may be the only method to obtain new application. 

The documentation introduces you to the idea behind HomeBrew and how to install the software on your computer and to put you device into developers mode in order to install software.

You may need to dig a little deeper on the web after reading the documentation as it does not cover everything and it you need to trouble shoot anything the documentation is not here. The documentation includes Touchpad, but deals a lot more on the phone side of things.  

The user interface is simple and easy to navigate.

On the upside:

  • Clean and clear user interface
  • A good introduction to the HomeBrew community.

On the downside:

  • Documentation is lacking in things like troubleshooting.
  • The documentation does not go too deeply into anything.

Overall, this is a good overview of Preware Homebrew and is a useful and clear way of getting started with Homebrew. The same information can be found on the internet for free, but as the money goes to the HomeBrew community and has the promise to be update and correct then it is a good idea in getting the application if you are interested in joining the HomeBrew community.
