Apple Lets Developers Access IPhone Via Browser

At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference Steve Jobs ended his keynote with a mention that developers would be able to create programs for the iPhone after all. “To maintain the security of the iPhone, Apple decided not to let developers write actual applications for the iPhone, but rather create Web 2.0 applications that run within the version of Safari included on the iPhone. Developers will be able to create applications for the iPhone by using programming tools like Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) and taking advantage of Safari. A separate, special software developer kit is not needed, Jobs said…The apps created in this fashion can integrate with the iPhone’s built-in services, giving them access to making a call, sending an e-mail, or looking up location in Google Maps. Since most of the application code runs on a server, Apple said the software is both secure and easy to update” reports MacWorld. Apple has been critisized for refusing third-party access to the iPhone, with claims that it would result in a device with inherently less flexibility and features than other high-end phones.
