Rhomobile applauds Apple dropping App Store language restrictions
RhoMobile, the company behind the open source mobile application development framework Rhodes, has said it's great news that Apple has dropped its restrictions on what development tools can be used to create iOS applications for the iPhone and iPad and appear in Apple's App Store.
Other well known developers joined in welcoming the changes in Apple's restrictions. Miguel De Icaza said he was "grateful to Apple and the Apple employees that helped make this happen". Novell's De Icaza leads the open source Mono project, a port of Microsoft's CLR and C# for non-Microsoft platforms, and leads the closed source commercial MonoTouch project which allows C# developers to write for the iPhone. Adobe have also restarted development of its closed source Flash packager for the iPhone.
