Apple Begins to Release 3rd Party Browsers in App Store

GENEUCLA on January 14, 2009

Well, it looks like Apple has finally begun to release 3rd-party Web Browsers in their App Store.  Both MacRumors and Gizmodo published articles recently stating that browser alternatives like Edge Browser, Incognito, WebMate:Tabbed Browser, and Shaking Web were all just approved in the last day or so.  While Apple has not officially commented on this, it appears as if there was a separate queue for these types of applications.  Some of these applications have been waiting for approval since October 2008. 

What does this mean for Mobicip?  We're hopeful that they will move quickly at this point to reduce the backlog of applications in their queue.  When we spoke to Apple yesterday, they said that we would hear something within a day or two.  Maybe we'll be available by the end of the week.  Let's keep our fingers crossed!
