The Unofficial iPhone SDK Feedback Project

Now this strikes me as a very good idea:

…there isn’t an acceptable way for iPhone developers to constructively provide feedback with gravity.

Sure, Apple takes bug reports. However, the system is effectively opaque. Is the submitter alone with his/her issue, or does it effect a silent majority of developers? Furthermore, while bugs are objectively resolvable, they’re a subset of the much larger category of subjective feedback, e.g., policy/behavior changes.

There is evidence that Apple responds to constructive feedback: They dropped the NDA, they’ve reversed app rejections (e.g., Eucalyptus), and there are reports that they actively try to avoid bad blood.

So, to provide the iPhone developer community with a mechanism to collectively submit constructive feedback with gravity to Apple, I’m pleased to announce: The Unofficial iPhone SDK Feedback Project

I’ve already created a nugget of feedback, go vote it up and help out your fellow devs!
