iPhone-Developers.com Launched and in Beta
As you may have noticed, XDA’s Sister site has launched in Beta, iphone-developers.com is now open for registration and linking of your XDA account. The site is also looking for volunteers in the news writer and moderator department, so if you’d like to get involved, link your account and PM Arbre about available positions.
Quoted from the site
Our goal at iPD is to help nurture the 3rd-party and ‘jailbreak’ community, and to one day create a site that has the same talent and feel as that of xda-developers itself. We also want to help expand and grow the whole 3rd-party developer community by making jailbreaking easier and more accessible for everyone.
Take a look around, join the fourms, and reveiw an application or two, and let us know what you think! We’ve put a lot of volunteer hours into making all of this possible and we really hope you like it.
Now, go and check it out and report any bugs about the site in the “bug report” thread on the site. Also, check out the announcement thread.
