It was another eventful week in the world of iOS development (seriously, how often does developer news for anything or than the iPhone hit the major tech sites?!) with the big news being that Apple has taken a complete turn on their policy regarding third party development tools.
This has resulted in the continuation of development on the Flash CS5 iPhone packager, but even more importantly this means that any devs who were worried their apps could be pulled at any time because they used a tool such as Unity 3D no longer have anything to worry about. In addition to this Apple clarified many of their reasons for rejecting apps, and has improved the overall process of getting an app into the app store for developers.
There were also many great development resources released during the week, and here are the most popular posts from the week Sept.4 to Sept. 10:
