Apple will release a directory of programs for the iPhone


Apple is expected to release a directory of “blessed” apps for the iPhone as soon as this week. Apple has been contacting developers of specific iPhone apps for descriptions, screenshots, and icons to be included in this directory.

The submission process is very similar to the one Widget developers have to follow to be included in the download list in Apple’s directory for these applications.

This move by Apple indicates that it is willing to continue supporting developers moving into the Web development environment that Apple wants for the iPhone.

iPhone users don’t seem to have specific icons for the apps they want to use, and Apple will presumably add an icon that opens the Programs directory in a separate window, perhaps with a favorites system.
