A Little More Evidence of 3rd Party App Support On The Horizon?

iPhone Atlas has a good article up detailing a hidden feature in the iPhone’s latest 1.1.1 firmware, which looks like a clear indication that support for more applications is on the way.

iPhone software/firmware 1.1.1 includes a hidden, Apple-developed feature that allows multiple pages of icons to be displayed. The pages are represented by small circles at the bottom of the SpringBoard, and can be accessed by swiping across the screen or tapping the small circles

The feature discovery was made by Nicholas Penree of Conceited Software.

This is very good to see. Although the additional icons and pages could be filled up with just more web apps, I’m going to be optimistic and take this as a sign that support for ‘real’ apps will be coming in the not too distant future as well. The sooner Apple offers some sort of support for 3rd party apps – and hopefully makes it very open – the sooner I’d be thinking seriously about updating.
