‘App Store’ will distribute iPhone software
Apple said Thursday that it will control the sale and distribution of all iPhone software created by independent developers. The software will be distributed via a new program on the iPhone called App Store, as well as on Macs and PCs via a new section of the iTunes Store.
Unveiling App Store during ThursdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s iPhone briefing at AppleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Cupertino headquarters, CEO Steve Jobs described App Store as Ã¢â‚¬Å“an application weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve written to deliver apps to the iPhone. And weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to put it on every single iPhone with the next release of the software.Ã¢â‚¬Â
That softwareÃ¢â‚¬â€the iPhone 2.0 releaseÃ¢â‚¬â€is slated for June and will also include the Software Development Kit announced Thursday. A beta of the SDK is available now from Apple.
