    Default Apple Drops SDK NDA


    Apple this morning decided to completely drop the NDA for released software created from the official SDK.

    Looks like all the commotion lately did in fact have an effect...

    We have decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for released iPhone software.

    We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect, so that others don’t steal our work. It has happened before. While we have filed for hundreds of patents on iPhone technology, the NDA added yet another level of protection. We put it in place as one more way to help protect the iPhone from being ripped off by others.

    However, the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone’s success, so we are dropping it for released software. Developers will receive a new agreement without an NDA covering released software within a week or so. Please note that unreleased software and features will remain under NDA until they are released.

    Thanks to everyone who provided us constructive feedback on this matter.

    So we can finally expect Flash for iPhone? I'm sure there are many more advantages but Flash is something ive been waiting on. Now if they can come up with an MMS solution -.-. Getting swirly to work with AT&T is a pain. I've given up on that.

    Yeah, but this will unhobble all of those developer conferences. I was on a nother forum just the other day, and one dev gave another dev a tip & I wondered if they were going to get in trouble. Now they have nothing to worry about. That is a good thing. That tip is going to translate directly into features that I wanted to see in that app- and a few more apps as well.

    I'm thinking that he thinks this means that people can make anything and get it on the App Store.

    Apple would never sacrifice tarnishing their name and/or brand for more possible gains... their name and the perception of value they uphold with everything associated with them means everything to them.
