Apple Very good news out of Cupertino just now. It took quite a bit of negative press, but Apple has finally caved in: the company is dropping its restriction on third-party development tools for iOS. Also, the company has published all its App Store review guidelines out in the open for the first time. It took a little too long, but very good news nonetheless.

From daringfireball:

3.3.2 An Application may not download or install executable code. Interpreted code may only be used in an Application if all scripts, code and interpreters are packaged in the Application and not downloaded. The only exception to the foregoing is scripts and code downloaded and run by Apple’s built-in WebKit framework.

BTW: HTML is definitely NOT code! ;)

So, same as before, no other browser engines.

HTML should not be code. But that didn't stop them from doing this:

Yeah, I already quoted most of that. Why did you miss it...? oh, OS News readers decided to vote it down.
