Apple May Market Third-Party Apps for the iPhone
Apple has alienated many of its customers by strictly limiting the types of third-party software that can run on the iPhone, which includes blocking the use of native applications. But, according to an unconfirmed report, the company may be putting together a system that will allow users to download approved programs to their smartphone.
The site 9 to 5 Mac is reporting that Apple will institute a system already used with other smartphones, most notably the Sidekick line, in which the maker of the device closely controls which third-party applications are available.
Under this system, developers will send their applications to Apple for approval. Only after the programs have been tested to ensure they won't cause problems for the iPhone will they be put up for sale on iTunes.
The same system might be used for the iPod Touch, which runs a virtually identical operating system.
