iPhone apps expected to come to iTunes store


I've been holding my breath for news of the release of iPhone applications that will offer some of the smartphone features I lost when I gave up my Treo (which I was perhaps a bit hasty in doing). For starters, I'd settle for a simple password keeper (there are web apps for this, but I don't want to send secure information into the big wide uncertainty of the web, and I've found that I'm too impatient to wait for pages to load). After that, something that lets me create and revise documents would be nice, and a program that syncs with Quicken.

Wired predicts that the release of Apple's iPhone software development kit will be followed by iTunes become a software store for the huge community of developers that will arise. Apparently, some developers are a little worried about the loss of control of their products that will come with having iTunes as the primary or only distribution vehicle. For iPhone users, there are obvious advantages to being able to go to one shop to browse through all (or most) offerings. While I enjoy browsing different stores for most categories of products, I've never enjoyed that process when purchasing applications for my smartphones (though I suppose exorbitant pricing may change my view on that).
