Open Source iPhoneDevCamp "red:green" App at App Store

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 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 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:

  • The iPhone application you submit to us should not be one that you plan to submit under your own iPhone App Store account.
  • You must agree to make the source code for your iPhone application available under an open source license as soon as Apple releases us to do so.
  • You must sign an agreement with me that allows me to submit it to the iTunes store under the iPhoneDevCamp account. This agreement in effect makes you a “contractor” so that we can both operate under the terms of the Apple’s iPhone SDK Agreement, and I will pay you US$1.00 for the work.

If you are interested, please contact me at 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.

    Not exactly the first. The source code for the WordPress app is available too.

    Perhaps not the first open source app, but the first open source app released by iPhoneDevCamp. Interesting scheme to allow the organization to submit it – I hope this takes off.

    Nicely written and thanks for this interesting contribution. Do you write posts yourself or do you outsource?

  4. There is visibly a bundle to identify about this. I feel you made various nice points in features also.

  5. Не блог, а поток хороших новостей. Как у вас так получается?
