App Store Workaround

September 15, 2008

Oh this is stinking BRILLIANT!

If you haven’t heard, Apple rejected an iPhone Developers App & on the surface it sounds as if it was due to a competing feature set to iTunes’ Podcast stuff.

What did the rejected developer do? What any clever and determined developer would. He routed around the damage and used a legitimate back door Apple left ajar… “Ad Hoc” app distribution of course.

Now, what Apple may have just done is unwittingly cracked their own strangle hold on the heavyweight title of iPhone app distribution. I hope someone (possibly Alex) can exploit this to full advantage. Apple’s heavy handedness in this matter is not something we ought to tolerate silently.
