I wanted to take this time to explain what the AppStore is the people who constantly and inaccurately portray what it is and how it will work. If any of you watched the apple event video, you would understand more what I'm frustrated about. Okay, right now we have the Installer. Installer is the method of which you connect to online repositories of applications make using the current toolkit, download, and install them automatically onto the iPod/iPhone. Installer is completely free, except for applications which have built in registration. AppStore is basically Apple's way of reinventing the Installer, the only differences being that the content is controlled by apple "you can think of it being installer with only one repository" and SOME of the content is shareware "you have to pay for it." The DEVELOPER chooses the price, not Apple. The name "AppStore" does not imply that everything costs money. Thus if most of the developers submit applications for free, then the AppStore, apart from the upgrade cost, will be free. Current Jailbroken developers can simply use the SDK apple provides, port their apps, submit to Apple, and Apple if they see no problems with the application, will provide it in the AppStore. The only other difference is that Apple will be very selective, as in most things like system hacks and emulators and the such will not pass the "inspection." This is where people who want to continue to jailbreak may continue to do so. + You don't have to pay to have them on the AppStore unless your selling them as shareware. If you want to post a free app, Apple will host it for free for life, but if you want to post a shareware app, then they take a portion of your earnings. Watch the video or read up. + iPhone and iPod users will have to pay a "nominal fee" as Steve said.
