Apple drops the NDA for the iPhone SDK

October 1, 2008

All I can say is, about damn time.  I could understand keeping the SDK under NDA before the 2.0 firmware was officially released (and I can understand why Apple is still keeping it in place for unreleased software), but it made zero sense to me that they’d gag developers from discussing the SDK after they released the 2.0 (and then 2.1) update.  Seriously: you want developers talking about your platform, sharing tips and tricks, and writing books.  Stiffling those people should be the last thing on your mind.

Frankly, I regard this as evidence that it’s a good thing Google’s Android is in the ecosystem; it seems like Apple needs someone forcefully applying a sanity check to make sure they don’t go too far off the deep end.
