Tiny Code, who managed a directory of unofficial iPhone and iPod Touch third-party apps accessed by the Installer.app software, have announced that they are now working in a more official capacity with Apple, and in doing so revealed the first official mention of firmware version 1.1.4.
“Tiny Code no longer produces fixes or applications for firmware 1.1.3. We can’t say much, but we are working with Apple and with their SDK for the next firmware release and SDK applications and we shouldn’t be missed for long. We will no longer update our Installer.app repo for legality reasons and you should see us soon on iTunes” Tiny Code statement
Steve Jobs has previously promised the official iPhone SDK at some point in February, and many are seeing this move to legitimacy by Tiny Code as sign that they are porting currently unauthorised software written for the handset into Apple-sanctioned apps.
Tiny Code’s site, http://tiny-code.com, now redirects to Apple’s own iPhone developer webpage.
