Calling All Devs: The iPad Needs You... Now!
Well, what took so long? That's the question many developers are asking tonight on the heels of Apple's big announcement. This morning, a boatload of devs first began reporting the arrival of an email from Apple clearing the way for iPad app submissions.
With enticing language inviting developers to be part of the forthcoming grand opening of the iPad App Store, Apple is asking devs to turn in their best iPad apps before March 27th for an initial review so that the App Review Team can provide feedback and ready the app ahead of the launch of the iPad App Store. Developers are required to build their apps using beta 5 of the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK.
This week on ModMyi, we've covered Apple's ongoing struggles with potential networking and content providers to lay out a wealth of outstanding digital offerings by April 3rd. Along the way, however, more than a few bumps in the road have hindered Apple from lining up the type of deals necessary to give the first wave of iPad users a truly dynamic introduction to the long awaited tablet.
With a potential "content shortfall" on tap for the iPad - at least in terms of content provided by major multimedia and publishing outlets - Apple is now signaling to devs that their time to shine has come. Apple is ready to open the floodgates. And if the interest measured among developers in recent months proves accurate, there's a good possibility that no one will be thinking about a "content shortfall" once the iPad App Store finally opens.

Now we can have Uber-Fart apps, and Uber-Sized Hand Warmers. (and uber-sized flash lights to drain the battery) Oh, the possibilities.

Meh. Use of their SDK blocks me from ever distributing an app outside their channels and if my app does something true useful or cutting edge it will normally be block until the app is stripped of what made it desirable. I don't write Windows software (except Lazarus apps) because it's a moving target. I don't write iPhone/iPad apps because it's a censored target. That leaves Linux, Android and Mac OS X. I stopped trusting Microsoft Windows because they would abandon the preferred dev platform every couple of years. Apple does the same but on longer cycles so it not so bad keeping up so far but what if the next desktop OS to replace OS X is an iPhone style closed shop. Is it worth the risk? Right now if Lazarus supports it I support it, so no iPad dev for me.

^ silly. Add humans to the comparison, you get about the same results, a check for multitasking and maybe even one for standard ports( for females anyway). To be fair you should go the other way and list everything the ipad has that a rock doesn't.

We get it. You don't like it. Maybe you can just add " I hate the ipad" to your info that way you don't have to waste your time trolling every single ipad thread

I'll get over. It will just take a little time and some intensive therapy
It - I'll get over it
I won't get over this lack of edit on iPhone app though, not even /with/ therapy

lol, Wah! Stop hating on the iPad! Wah! Excuse me for trying to find reasons to get one. I was looking forward to it until it was unveiled. For now, I'm keeping the wait and see but it's not looking good for Apple

It's funny how they are begging for apps right now but in time, let the blockade begin
