How will the iPad and iPhone OS 3.2 Change App Development?

Has Apple changed the world again with the release of the iPad? To app developers, the change is both subtle and enormous. It’s subtle because the new OS version 3.2 is only a minor update from the previous version 3.1.2, and because there are few changes in the APIs(just some additions). On the other hand, this is an enormous change because the iPad presents an entirely new market for both existing and new applications. It is likely to spark another “app gold rush” similar to what we saw when the App Store opened and the iPhone SDK was first released two years ago. It also significantly changes the development paradigm for programmers of iPhone apps.

Why Christmas is the best day to sell iPhone Apps

Nick Campbell of ShakeItPhoto fame noted:

And here's the video he made on the subject:

KnockingLive video streaming App Approved After Appeal to Steve Jobs

Ars Technica reported that Pointy Heads Software wrote a persuasive email to Steve Jobs to get their Knocking Live Video app approved and into the AppStore: 

The impassioned pleas of one developer, e-mailed to Steve Jobs, resulted in a quick reversal of an app's rejection. The launch of the app today is the first known approved app that can stream live video directly from one iPhone to another, and the first approval for an app with known use of private APIs. Apple's change of heart came "directly from the top," and is a sign that real change in the App Store approval process is in the works.
