Devs are receiving emails letting them know the NDA for AppStore stuff drops tomorrow
morning (Thursday) at 9am. (This is still a RUMOR
). Looks like we'll have a full day of looking at the AppStore before those iPhone 3G's are available.
Once that happens, and most likely the 2.0 firmware will be available then as well, developers can start talking about their apps publicly, and news sites/blogs can start posting.
If you are selling an iPhone app through the AppStore, let us know! Front page of the site has our tip email link - use that to hit us up with some video, screenshots, and descriptions of your app for us to post. We'd love to hear about it.
So who do we already know is going to be posting in the AppStore?
Here's a list:
will be launching at least 3 new apps.
is a full featured tuner for a variety of instruments. especially guitars, with some amazing graphics and a great UI. You may know it as its jailbroken version, Funiculus. This premium version adds a fretboard mode and a clef mode for full featured, precise tuning with tons of visuals. $4.99

runs off the same engine as OmniTuner, but is the light version. Play your axe straight into the iPhone mic, and let TyroTuner auto pick up the correct note and pitch, and tune up. $2.99

is another remake of a game you may know from Installer, with some gorgeous graphics and the same great game play. $0.99
will be launching at least 3 games

Of course we've heard about Loopt
