Status of StyleTap iPhone Experimental Version

Our recent posting of a video showing an experimental version of StyleTap running on an iPod Touch has been viewed over 700,000 times and generated a great deal of feedback and interest in a version of StyleTap for the Apple iPhone. We were particularly struck by the number of people who commented that the ability to run their Palm applications would definitely make them consider purchasing an iPhone.


Apple subsequently released their much-anticipated Software Development Kit (SDK), which answered some questions but also introduced some potential legal roadblocks which could impede our efforts to make a StyleTap iPhone/iPod Touch version available through official Apple channels. We are continuing to make good technical progress with the iPhone "experimental" version and are exploring various ways to bring it to market. We encourage everyone interested in seeing a version of StyleTap for the iPhone to let Apple know of your interest by sending feedback at http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html.
