These applications include PDAnet which turns iPhone into a modem, Cycorder, wich turns iPhone into a camcorder. I love to have both these on my iPhone and hope Apple will have these or similar on the store. Otherwise, I may have to take drastic measures. I do not want Steve Jobs to decide what I want to run on my iPhone, which I paid big bucks for!
Freeman is quoted as saying, "The overworking goal is to provide choice, It's understandable that [Apple] wants to control things, but it has been very limiting for developers and users.". Indeed but I think apple wants to control the market that it collects percentage that is said to be 30% of developers money from apps that sells on the app store.
But Apple might be gearing up for leagal action and wiggling DMCA, Digital Millenium Copyright Act as it has filed a statement with U.S. Copyright office. Lame.
As I said, Apple, I bought iPhone to be productive so either provide apps we want or let us get it from whom it is available. Cycorder is an Open Source Application.
