The response has been huge. Currently, nearly 1000 webOS developers have attempted to take him up on his offer.

To qualify, developers must have at least one application published on the webOS App Catalog.

With Android and iOS exploding with apps and being hit up by tens of thousands of developers worldwide, anything that Watson and his team can do to get more attention, more developers, and more apps is a plus.
