iPhone Apps to be Exclusively Developed on Mac? Sorry Windows

For those of you looking for forward to building apps for iPhone, don't plan on writing that code on Windows. According to story posted on iPodNN, Apple will be making its upcoming iPhone SDK available for Mac only, with Leopard as required OS. That?s not surprising given that iPhone runs on an embedded flavor of OSX, and it?s not as though Mac software can be written in Microsoft Visual Studio. Apparently Apple will be releasing an enhanced version of Xcode, with built-in tools for iPhone application development.

So there you have it. Buy a Mac mini, fire up Xcode, and start compiling.

Apple Will Open the Kimono to Developers Outside of iTunes Walled Garden

Today is the big day for soon-to-be iPhone developers, anxiously awaiting for an SDK to drop from the mothership. Before that happens, I'd like to clear up some comflicting reports that are spreading through the ether. As you might have guessed, Apple's distribution portal for native iPhone applications will be iTunes, just as it now for iPod media and games. However, according to my sources that will only apply to commercial (as in BUY NOW) software.

Free and or open source applications won't by tied to the great orifice that is iTunes. Those applications will have a method for loading on iPhone, provided they adhere to Apple's development guidelines and are signed with a special digital signature, ala Symbian, for security purposes.

Hey, Steve. China's On the Phone, It's for You

China's largest wireless carrier wants to bring iPhone to its customers. According to sources within China Mobile, the company is deeply interested in negotiating a deal with Apple, though no formal talks have yet taken place. I guess the Chinese have given up on trying to clone the iPhone after recent failed attempts.

China represents one of the worlds largest and fastest growing wireless markets. One that could prove very lucrative for Apple, and fill its coffers with lots of Yuan.

Steve Jobs to iPhone Users: "No Flash for You!"

So much for native Flash support in iPhone. In an interview yesterday, Steve Jobs told reporters that Adobe's mobile Flash player "isn't good enough" for iPhone, shunning its possible inclusion in the product. He went on to make an oddly elusive and interesting comment, saying "There's this missing product in the middle,", hinting that Apple may have said "missing" product in development. What could it be? It won't be Silverlight, that much is certain.

iPhone Coming to Ireland. And That's No Blarney

Put down your pint of Guinness and drop your Blarney stone. Apple struck a deal with O2 Ireland to bring iPhone to the land of shamrocks and bar fights. That confirmation comes straight from the horses mouth, depending on which end is speaking, in the form of an official announcement on O2's website which lists iPhone's availability on March 14. So there you have it.

Now how about making a nice pot of corned beef and cabbage for wee little Kent?

Mark your calendars for March 6, 10:00 am PST. Apple will be holding a special event for members of the media, outlining the company's iPhone development roadmap, as well a possible SDK release for developers. Apple began sending out invitations to the press early this morning, except for me of course. Steve Jobs has never forgiven me for photoshopping his head on Napoleon's bust.

Stay tuned.

iPhone SDK and Firmware Release "Imminent", As In "Look Out Your Window, It's Pulling Up the Driveway Now"

Remember those long hot summer days, back in your childhood, when the musical sounds of an ice cream truck pulling into your neighborhood sent you bolting out the door and running into the street, painting the sidewalk with your saliva along the way? Well prepare to feed your inner child another tasty treat. Tiny Code, the site behind Installer.app repositories (yes, THAT installer.app) has apparently leaked information regarding Apple's upcoming iPhone SDK, claiming that it was working with Apple to develop said SDK, no less.

G'day Mate: iPhone Coming to the Land Down Under

Alright, you Aussies. Drop your didgeridoos and Kangaroos and get down from your gum trees, because iPhone is coming to your bush. What's that you ask? Is Kent a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock? Nope, and I haven't been smoking any strange Aboriginal tobacco either.

T-Mobile says it will begin rolling out iPhones to customers sometime in the first half of this year, give or take. Abso-bloody-lutely they will, so start saving your zacks now. Now stop questioning my sanity unless you want to start a barney. Got it? Ta!

iPhone Marketshare Climbing Fast

We're looking at just over 6 months of sales and the iPhone is rocking the marketshare in the Smartphone category like you wouldn't believe. According to Canalys (whose numbers we've admittedly doubted before, but these results look pretty solid), the iPhone has reached 28% marketshare among Smartphones in the US and 7% worldwide. That puts it at #2 in the US and #3 worldwide. They're even ahead of Motorola.
