Apple's annual developer conference in San Francisco.
iPhone May Allow 3rd Party Applications?
Is the iPhones platform closed? And if it is, will it be open to developers in the future? Jobs says its a security issue, but Apple is working to find a way to allow developers to build applications for it. Jobs says he doesnt want the iPhone to be one of those phones that crashes a few times a day. He adds: We would like to solve this problem and if you could just be a little more patient with us, well do it.
Jobs hints that there is a solution in the works to allow 3rd party application development for the iPhone. Apple's position on this has been a point of criticism.
