Apple debuts iPhone Developer Connection site

Apple launched a website for prospective iPhone developers in conjunction with its Apple Developer Connection site. The new iPhone site outlines topics including:

  • Understanding User-iPhone Interaction
  • Use Standards and Tried-and-True Design Practices
  • Integrate with Phone, Mail, and Maps
  • Optimize for Page Readability
  • Ensure a Great Audio and Video Experience
  • Know What Safari Supports on iPhone; and
  • Connect with Web Developers

At its Worldwide Developers Conference in January, Apple said developers would be granted access to create iPhone applications only within the context of the computing giant's Safari 3 Public Beta web browser. According to Apple, "Developers can create Web 2.0 applications that look and behave just like the applications built into iPhone, and provide seamless integration with iPhone applications and services including making a phone call, sending an e-mail and displaying a location in Google Maps. Third-party applications created using web standards can extend iPhone's capabilities without compromising its reliability or security."
