Apple clamps down on iPhone development tools

Up to now, developers for the iPhone have been able to create a broad range of apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad using third party tools.  However Apple have recently modified their developer license agreement to restrict using such tools in order to improve the quality of the applications appearing within the App Store.

However, many developers have argued Apples decision to do this, claiming that it is “limiting creativity”.  Apple counteracted the accusation stating that letting developers use tools other than Apple XCode would create “sub-standard apps” and hold back the overall progress of the iPhone.

We at iPhone Connection develop our applications using Apple XCode without using third party tools, reducing the concern of getting your application rejected when it comes to the reviewing process.
