June 29 marks the day Apple fans waited for in anticipation, lining up in vicious droves five years ago to be an early adopter of Apple’s next big revolutionary product – the hot must-have of the moment in 2007. It can be considered a cataclysm of sorts for Apple’s competition in the phone industry and a status symbol for consumers. Who could resist the aluminum-clad phone oozing with style that included the coolest multi-touch interface ever to come to fruition? Bearing a legend status, the original iPhone was one of the world’s most influential devices ever.
As snarky as Apple may have been with its iPhone app developers, it may be easing up a bit. Despite a spotted violation of Apple's rules for developers, developer Vimov, creators of the iSimulate application [App Store, $15.99], stated that the program was approved for released on the App Store with a warning to fix the issue in a future update. The warning came when Vimov used a private API, which is against Apple's terms.
The application allows developers to use the iPhone's multi-touch and accelerometer capabilities within the iPhone simulator software on a Mac.
