Apple’s New iPhone App Policy: All Your Code Are Belong To Us

Amidst all the hullabaloo surrounding the launch of Apple’s iPhone OS 4.0, the contentious company from Cupertino is coming under fire for a quietly made change to its iPhone developer’s agreement.

The change, first noted by John Gruber of the Daring Fireball blog, effectively prohibits developers from using any “intermediary translation” tools in building native iPhone applications. In simpler terms, programmers will be required to use only Apple’s proprietary tools in creating their apps; they won’t be able to translate their programs from other platforms as they’d previously been able to do.
