Comment on "Developing for the iPhone"
by Scott Stevenson — Jan 14
I think a simple solution would be to let 3rd party applications run in a managed environment and allow for different levels of access to the network
This makes a tremendous amount of sense to me. It still leaves the question of users messing up their phones, though. I think that's a bigger deal for an iPhone than a Treo, given the target market.

If the user downloads an app that causes local problems one way or another and can't make phone calls, they'd blame Apple and/or Cingular, not the developer. I suspect that's at least one factor in the decision about third party apps.
