Comment on "Do Consumers Want Indie iPhone Apps?"

End users don't care how you make the special sauce, just so long as it's tasty, and doesn't make a big mess. But, they definitely want sauce!

For most stuff, widgets would probably be fine, but for a few things, a native level API would be required (I'm thinking of novel uses for the accelerometer in particular.)

As I mentioned in my post to the other thread, Apple could provide a developer API via paid ADC membership with the stipulation that to be released into the wild, you have to prove your creation safe to them first (otherwise, it won't install). Build a bad app? No release keys. Crack the SDK (or use somebody else's crack)? They kill your SIM card and sue you.
