iPhone App Devs Still Gagged by Non-Disclosure Agreement, Mad as F'n Hell About It

Illustration for article titled iPhone App Devs Still Gagged by Non-Disclosure Agreement, Mad as Fn Hell About It

As we covered in our case for still needing the iPhone app black market, developers are gagged by a non-disclosure agreement that keeps them from talking about actually programming the iPhone with anybody, even though sharing info would help app development. Surprise, developers don't like that. So now we have Fucking NDA, which aggregates their rants and musings, turning them into a single stream of angst about, well, that fucking NDA. Here's a gem collected from Twitterific's Craig Hockenberry:


"There is a huge shortage of iPhone developers. Good thing there are books and classes to get new ones up to speed. Oh right: FUCKING NDA." More seriously, he points out that the NDA, unless lifted, threatens dev conferences like iPhoneDevCamp 2, where they'd get together to obviously talk about programming. The apps are out there, it's silly they still can't they talk about creating them. [Fucking NDA via TUAW]

I'm actually looking to hire someone to write an app for me. I'm set up to submit it to Apple. I want to be the EA of iPhone software publishers, but produce consistent content. Contact me if interested.
