Can anyone confirm if I understand this correctly?  The SDK for iPhone is available for free in the Mac App Store to anyone with a Mac computer running Lion, and the SDK includes an emulator for iPhone for app testing.  One can compile the app, but must be part of the $99/year developer program in order to load an application on physical iPhones, even your own phone connected via USB?

I don't think you need to own the licence to run your self-compiled apps. I'm not 100% sure though, since I've had always the licence.

Also you can distribute the app also as a beta to something like 100 users. They don't even need to compile it or anything, and I guess installing for them is pretty trivial.

However, without a very easy installation there won't be much adoption. Technically adept people usually don't understand how easy it must be, so that people will "get it". If you need to do anything that requires some thinking, most people won't bother.

You either need the license, or the phone must be jailbroken.

Anyway, we're really off-topic since the fact is people have iPhones and we don't want to throw out that market.

I am surprised you think so. Jailbroken iPhones blow Android's OS out of the water in my opinion.

I agree.  Cydia is the best source for apps on any OS I've seen.

It is just the fact that the full clients suck for mobile usage. Hope that somebody implements Electrum-style client and gets it approved.

I'm thinking it would be better just to have a website designed for the small displays of mobile devices (like google or yahoo have). Then you don't need Apple approval and the mobile version would work on both iOS devices and Android devices. I guess this also beg the question of whether you'd prefer to have some BTC actually on the mobile device or just keep some on an exchange or online wallet and then access that site through the mobile device.

I am already doing this with easywallet.org - pretty fast to get started with iPhone/Android devices. The UI for mobile isn't that great yet, hopefully I will have some time in the future to improve it.
