>>Native iPhone apps will be distributed through the iTunes App

>>there are no other recurring fees. The iTunes App Store will handle

>>applications will not be charged for Apple to deliver their 
>>applications through iTunes.

Awesome stuff. Now the development is all done using Xcode and Cocoa. 
I'm wondering if it would be possible to port the Revolution engine 
over?

What the App Store needs is the kind of explosion of applications 
that we enjoyed when Hypercard first came on the scene and Steve Jobs 
said that they would be hosting FREE applications, not just software 
for retail.
