Today Apple provided more information about third-party application development for the iPhone. Developers will be able to take advantage of the same tools used by Apple to write their own applications. Developers will be able to get the SDK and create applications for the iPhone, which can then be downloaded to the iPhone through the new iTunes Applications Store. Users will be able to download via their computer, as well as over EDGE and Wi-Fi. Developers will get 70% of the revenue from games sold. The SDK will be free, but it will cost $99 to publish games. A beta release will be made available today. The applications won't be supported until the iPhone is updated to version 2.0, which won't be until June.

So for the games...

will they all be touch screen type games?!...or will there be some way to take a controller and connect it with the iphone. Cause I can't imagine playing Tecmo Bowl with only touch screen.

... your confusing the IPHONE with other touch screens, the IPHONE can handle multiple touches at the same time so you can have a whole touch screen controller for your IPHONE... (can anybody say NES emulator 🤤 )

Wow 70%!!

Sounds like a gold mine to developers! I don't recall blackberry paying a dime for apps made for Blackberry. I also like that they require it going through Itunes. It would likely assist with quality control.
