Building Apps for the iPhone

So there was this little get-together called iPhoneDevCamp last weekend (July 6-8, 2007), and since I'm just over 2000 miles from San Francisco, I missed out. However, in just under a week, there seems to have been a flood of great iPhone applications. To find out what I mean, just check out a google search, OR, head right on over to the iPhone Application List.

So, in such a short time since the iPhone's release, how have so many applications been built? I blame Joe Hewitt. His User Interface library, iUI, makes building basic apps for the iPhone a cinch. So what is iUI? Well, to quote from his blog:

Its goal is simply to turn ordinary standards-based HTML into a polished, usable interface that meets the high standards set by Apple's own native iPhone apps.

So, there you have it. Try it out! I certainly will!
