Worldwide, with android, perhaps the true start of Personal Computing ..

Apple statement 

"In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools 
used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download 
any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while 
preserving the security we need."

Ars Technia say

"These changes should allow developers to use whatever development 
environments or languages suit them, as long as the resulting code 
doesn't use unapproved or private APIs and can be compiled into native 
iOS code. Even the iPhone development tools included in Flash CS5 should 
be able to be used to create iOS apps without restriction. Developers 
should also be able to continue to collect analytic data assuming that 
data does not compromise a user's privacy."

Statement by Apple on App Store Review Guidelines

The App Store has revolutionized the way mobile applications are 
developed and distributed. With over 250,000 apps and 6.5 billion 
downloads, the App Store has become the world’s largest mobile 
application platform and App Store developers have earned over one 
billion dollars from the sales of their apps. 

We are continually trying to make the App Store even better. We have 
listened to our developers and taken much of their feedback to heart. 
Based on their input, today we are making some important changes to our 
iOS Developer Program license in sections 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.3.9 to relax 
some restrictions we put in place earlier this year. 

In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools 
used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download 
any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while 
preserving the security we need. 

In addition, for the first time we are publishing the App Store Review 
Guidelines to help developers understand how we review submitted apps. We 
hope it will make us more transparent and help our developers create even 
more successful apps for the App Store. 

The App Store is perhaps the most important milestone in the history of 
mobile software. Working together with our developers, we will continue 
to surprise and delight our users with innovative mobile apps.
