Softwareentwicklung für das iPhone bzw. den iPod Touch

  1. Apple hat soeben eine Liste der WebApps für das iPhone und den iPod Touch unter veröffentlicht.
  2. Gerüchte besagen, das es demnächst auch möglich sein könnte nicht-webbasierte Anwendungen für das iPhone zu entwickeln (z.B. mittels der Entwicklungsumgebung X-Code).
  3. Unbestätigtes Gerücht: “Apple wird Anfang 2008 ein Development Kit für das iPhone veröffentlichen(…) Die Gerüchte sind nun offiziell:

Third Party Applications on the iPhone

Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers’ hands in February. We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers.

It will take until February to release an SDK because we’re trying to do two diametrically opposed things at once—provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware, privacy attacks, etc. This is no easy task. Some claim that viruses and malware are not a problem on mobile phones—this is simply not true. There have been serious viruses on other mobile phones already, including some that silently spread from phone to phone over the cell network. As our phones become more powerful, these malicious programs will become more dangerous. And since the iPhone is the most advanced phone ever, it will be a highly visible target.

Some companies are already taking action. Nokia, for example, is not allowing any applications to be loaded onto some of their newest phones unless they have a digital signature that can be traced back to a known developer. While this makes such a phone less than “totally open,” we believe it is a step in the right direction. We are working on an advanced system which will offer developers broad access to natively program the iPhone’s amazing software platform while at the same time protecting users from malicious programs.

We think a few months of patience now will be rewarded by many years of great third party applications running on safe and reliable iPhones.


P.S.: The SDK will also allow developers to create applications for iPod touch. [Oct 17, 2007]

  • Hallo wir brauchen eine Software für das Iphone, welche ein Verzeichnis aus dem Internet (Javascriptdateien und Images) lokal in ein Verzeichnis des Iphones kopiert. Safari muss diese Dateien lesen können, damit HTML auch angezeigt werden kann, wenn keine Internetverbindung zur Verfügung steht. (aus Javascript mitfile:///private/var….) Ist das möglich? Mfg.
