The basic version of WidgetPad for iPhone allows developers to distribute their applications to iPhone users for free via generic WidgetPad client--the source code of those "public" applications is automatically shared among other programmers (MIT license) to forge a collaborative environment for the developer community. Later this year, WidgetPad will introduce a premium edition for "private" projects, enabling coders to distribute stand-alone applications through the App Store. In addition, upcoming versions of WidgetPad will enable developers to seamlessly port their applications to other smartphone platforms like Palm's webOS and Research In Motion's BlackBerry.
