iPhone Application Development

Comments (3)

Stanford has put all the course material for CS 193P – iPhone Application Programming up on the web.  If you are developing an iPhone app, or considering it, the course looks like it has a huge amount of useful data.

    The only downside I see to this is how much aggravation Apples' NDA is stirring up. I have been reading through the slides and found it interestingly doc'd how it is like Fight Club's motto – you do not talk about …. Anyhow it should be interesting to see the long term ripple affect this will have on programmers take on Apple.

    I've been working through some of it's content at home, and I don't think most of the NDA stuff applies any longer. Apple finally lifted the NDA restrictions so that developers can actually talk about it with each other about a month ago or so. Thanks for letting us talk, Apple, you're so kind! ;)

    That said, I'm still a little skeptical about iPhone applications because of all of the rules around them, the non-transparent approval process of apps that make it into the store, and past wrongdoings (I say this as someone who primarily uses Apple computing products). Personally, I don't think I would depend on iPhone applications as a sustainable business model, maybe just one of many long tails into my service/application. But that's just the opinion of someone that writes software for a living.
