Thread: Unforseen SDK Problems?

  1. #1
    Default Unforseen SDK Problems?
    I don't know if this has been talked about but I am alittle worried about parts of the SDK with regards to new features being released for free by Apple.

    For instance there is already a "free*" program out there to record video on the phone. What if he releases his program to the app store for a price, but then Apple makes an update to release video capture... now hes outta business. Smell a law-suit? There are more, but I'm sure ya'll understand the thing.

    Is apple going to become a bug fix only, or will they still update with new features? I believe that 2.0 might be the last time Apple does anything new, (outside of Apple-made apps... Mobilemail.app), for there newborn platform.


    Comments? Ideas?


    *I'm not going to name the program because requiring a Donation in order to unlock the features is not free. It becomes a purchase. Don't get me wrong, I am fine with donating, however saying its free but requiring a donation.... loss of words lol

    It's all about competition. And the winners are you and I. The maker of Showtime can't sue Apple because they include a video recorder on the iPhone. Hypothetically speaking, maybe Showtime has more features than a future built in video recorder, and if not, he'll have to make a version with features Apple doesn't have. The SDK won't put anyone out of business. And Apple will continue to add more features to the iPhone, and they'll do it better.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
