    Lame, this is the first time I've actually gotten a piece of news on slashdot before I got it here.

    Anyways, I'm pretty sure this has a lot more to do with unreleased features in the iPhone OS than developer's own apps. ie, developers testing betas of 2.2 or some future update still can't talk about what features are coming and whatnot, but once it is release they are allowed to discuss all the info about the features they want.

    dillonsmith: Did you even read a word of it? NDA is defined in the first sentence of the excerpt.

    This has 100% to do with AT&T's filters, nothing more.

    Oh, and who actually listens to an NDA... how hard is it really to break it and not get found out?! LOL

    NDA = Non-disclosure agreement. On short, devs can;t speak about their apps and apples devkit, beta software, etc. until apple spells out "you may now talk about your apps, software, etc"

    just give me flash and a video recorder on the app store. f that jailbreaking and cycorder(although it is great) much easier to just stay on apple os.

    I realize MMS problems are because of AT&T's filters. Thanks.

    What I was getting from this, even though I don't know much, is that Adobe won't have the restrictions it's had in developing Flash now that Apple has dropped the NDA. But now I see that it is only for released apps only...wtf?

    You are confused. The NDA just means that developers can not TALK about their apps or the development process. The thing that is stopping Flash from working on the iphone is Apple's draconian software control policy. The removal of the NDA will have nothing (or very little) to do with flash, because applications can not modify apple apps (like a plugin for safari, which flash would have to be) or make standalone apps that replicate apple application functionality (the only other option, make your own browser and implement flash in that), tldr; don't hold your breath for flash.

    To me Apple's NDA is non sense.

    The SDK is pretty much open to anyone.
    You don't need to pay to have access to the SDK and SDK docs and samples.

    Obviously Apple knows about the open toolchain that is also available to everyone.

    So I don't think the NDA helps much in hiding Apple secrets.

    It is good only to avoid exchange of info among developers and that doesn't help the development of better apps.

    Damn, so this really doesn't mean much then. Ya I'm really not expecting Flash anytime soon. Apple can't even give some of the basic features that most of us want like a respectable bluetooth stack or mms. I've been regretting the switch I made from my TyTn II to the iPhone more and more now. The only thing i like about the iphone better now is the web browser and better quality touch screen. Sure the tytn takes some messing with to get it to your liking but at least it had some decent features.

    Don't mean to ramble on but just getting tired of my iPhone already.
