Matt Legend Gemmell: “I want to solicit some feedback on the idea of selling source code for the iPad/iPhone and/or Mac platforms. Itâ€™s something thatâ€™s commonplace (and popular) on other platforms like .NET and Java, but for whatever reason itâ€™s never taken off on the Mac. I think that thereâ€™s potentially a reasonable market, particularly for iPhone/iPad, and Iâ€™d be interested in your thoughts.” – It’s odd there isn’t more of this in the Mac world. There’s definitely a whole lot of free, very well designed, Mac and iPhone source code floating around out there. Matt’s very own MGTwitterEngine or Gus Muller’s FMDB to name a couple.
I, for one, would welcome high-quality, supported, fully baked component bits for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad. It’ll make my life easier and allow me to focus on creating apps by not having to create as many foundation pieces.
