u guys are Over reacting period. Get over it and breath alittle. Just wait till June u have to anyways god........

sure, they gave us the phone, but still left loads of usable features missing (like MMS, a video recorder, IM chat, etc.) . . . and who has gladly filled those spots? developers!
I do not hate Apple, I just give the developers a whole lot more praise than Apple deserves in the apps department
so going back to your statement about "the features they blocked from the SDK will be implemented.. BY THEM" I respond in saying, yeah . . . almost a year later
03-15-2008, 02:40 PM #43
I think our devs should make thier own SDK and see which SDK will be better... that way we can laugh at apple, and watch them shut thier SDK down!

Well as always, apple is just not used to make it easy on the users or costumers.
they like to play with their own rules only.....
But hey we play on our rules, right?

If tmobile knows I'm using an iPhone before I call I am sure they save it somewhere
To the other users commenting on the gps... Thanks I didnt think about the wifigps as a plus. I do now.

By the time certificates are giving out to the public, those who are really interested in producing content would have had apps built for the simulator, ready to run and all of the posers would have given up.
If you really want to write apps... now... then use the Toolchain that's been around since July/August of last year. Works for me...
Apple clearly has a marketing strategy in place for July and wants to ensure that released apps are at least of a better quality than those for Symbian, RIM or Mobile Windows.

From what I understand, this is a rejection letter only "during the beta period" of the iPhone Developer program. It is believed that the iPhone Developer Program will be open to all comers after June when the program is out of beta. I think people are missing this big distinction. Apple is, I believe, only wanting developers who are working on larger issues like Enterprise and Microsoft ActiveSync and such during this period and not just developers making any kind of app.

I don't know what the hype is here. I work for a company & when we release our BETA, it generally goes to our Partners & Premium Customers during the BETA phase. Then the RTM release goes to the general public. Sorry guys, get real here.

I signed up for the developer program and was able to become and iphone dev with ease. well first i was just a mac developer, never paid just signed on free to watch the forums in the mac developer, i was able to get the iphone SDK, i have the 2.1 dmg file. I was wondering is this what everyone wants the 2.1gb file or are you saying you can get the SDK file but cannot pubilsh anything?

Who cares about the SDK?
Installer > SDK
03-16-2008, 06:36 AM #53
People, stop saying the Installer is better than the SDK!! It is the same thing as saying a ZIP file is better than Excel. It makes absolutely no sense!!! When iTunes distribution is available in June/July then feel free to comment about the differences between iTunes and Installer.

All of my friends got rejected! This is RIDICULOUS!
03-16-2008, 06:02 PM #55
You really think these rejections are Apple's way of catching people who have jailbroken/unlocked their iphone??? Wow... How would they be able to prove you even have an iPhone? Just because you signed up? They rejected people because this is a BETA program.

F*** Apple! They always trying to be a B.... about something! They can't get mad because people want more out of their iPhones. We paid $400 and $500 for our iPhones, AND we are going to do what the f... we like! It pi$$es me off at the fact they try and limit us to certain stuff! Like others if I a paid 400 and 500 for my phone, I expect to get the most of it! Apple needs to CHILL. Clearly they are upset that WE are coming up with better ideas than they are. All Apple says is WAIT WAIT WAIT.

This is not a PC with 20+ years of maturity behind it... Or a Symbian phone that has been around for more than 5 years. It's a complicated bit of hardware that's been out for roughly 9 months!
Suppose you just bought an XBox 360 or a PS3... Why not also demand that Sony or Microsoft to open it up to general developers? After all, it's really just a PC you paid ~ $350 - 400 USD for right? Don't you have the right to have full access and an SDK for it as well??
So... btw who are 'WE'? You must be a developer right? If so why not use the toolchain and make your own killer apps?? Here, I've provided you a link: http://code.google.com/p/iphone-dev/wiki/Building
Or... why not just sell your iPhone and buy a Nokia or a Motorola? The Symbian platform is a joy to develop code under ahemm. Plus they have hundreds of apps that do absolutely nothing as well

I agree with Dirtyu, not to hate on anyone but I don't want to hate on Apple at all because I think they may surprise everyone. And he's right, it's REALLY apparent that they don't give a damn about jailbreaking, hence why they haven't tried to stop it at all. At this point it isn't making them lose ANY money, people seriously are buying more iPhones just so they can mod the thing, c'mon guys be real. Steve is just eating us up the way we're in to these things so much. They have the power with any mandatory update to shut all of this down in a snap, and they can. They don't care to it's making more money for them! When they release the SDK apps and they are through with beta testing I'm sure they'll make a crack at us and piss a lot of people off. Til then lets have fun!

I agree with the fact that right now they are only working with established 3rd party software companies,
what I do disagree with is the way they went about doing it.
Stating that "anyone can sign up for the SDK package". they should of made it clear that atm they were only working with partners and in the future they would allow everyone to work on it.
If they were merely just trying to compile a list of possible developer's interest they should of created a survey of some sort instead of handing us the candy and then taking it away. All that did was piss off a lot of would-be developers and increase the incentive to use installer.
Knowing Apple there has to be some kind of logic behind this, the question is, is that logic actually right...-Ben
