Apple to Tightly Control iPhone App Distribution

March 1, 2008 at 8:28 pm Leave a comment

     Several Apple fan sites have reported variations to a common theme regarding the Apple touch platform SDK which is due out on March 6th. Apple is rumored to announce a beta version only on Thursday with the full stable platform release postponed until sometime in June. Furthermore, Apple likely will exercise tight control over release and distribution of third party software by requiring individual program approval before release and tying its distribution to iTunes. Such tactics can potentially backfire by bogging down the process of regularly released third party program updates and by reducing interest in developing for the Apple touch platform in the first place. Some sites are reporting that freeware programs may be excluded from the extra scrutiny.
