It was officially announced on March 6, 2008, at an Apple Town Hall meeting. The SDK will allow developers to make applications for the iPhone and iPod touch after paying a $99 fee to join the development team. The developer can then set the price for the applications he develops and will receive 70% of the sale price after each one is sold in the exclusive Apple Application Store. The developer can also opt to release the application for free and will not pay any costs to release the application except for the $99 joining fee. The SDK is available immediately, while the launch of applications will require waiting until a firmware update in June, 2008, around the iPhone's first birthday. This update will be free for iPhone users, while users of the iPod touch will be charged a nominal fee. I got this from wikipedia. So does this basically mean apple will start to allow people to make apps for the ipod touch?
