I am pleased to announce that the first open source iPhoneDevCamp iPhone application is now available on the iTunes App Store. It is a very simple application, called “red:green”, which is described on our new apps.iPhoneDevCamp.org web site. It is based on a web app from last year’s iPhoneDevCamp.
I hope that this will be the first of many open source iPhone projects that will be available due to iPhoneDevCamp. If you have an iPhone application that you are submitting to the iTunes store under your own name, are planning to demonstrate it during the Hackathon Contest, and agree to make the source code available as open source as soon as your iPhone SDK agreement allows you to, we can add the information about your application at the apps.iphonedevcamp.org website.
In addition, we can assist you if you would like to have your application submitted to the AppStore under the iPhoneDevCamp “artist” name. Our purpose of this “artist” is to make experimental and open source iPhone applications available to the public that otherwise would not be released because the authors either are not able to participate in the iPhone Developer Program or have other reasons that they don’t wish to release the work under their own artist name.
For instance, in my case I didn’t want to release “red:green” under my professional iTunes App Store account because I didn’t want to dilute the brand I wish to establish for my commercial applications.
Here are the requirements if you wish to submit your iPhone application to be published under the “iPhoneDevCamp” artist name:
If you are interested, please contact me at ChristopherA@iPhoneDevCamp.org or see me during iPhoneDevCamp this weekend.
If I get any submissions this weekend during iPhoneDevCamp 2, I will send them the following week to the iTunes App Store as soon as I code review them.
