If you're developing an IOS app for use in your enterprise, and not for sale to the general marketplace, your legal and administrative burdens are far less than they would be otherwise - you probably won't even need to get your company's litigation staff involved.  First you'll need to register for the IOS Developer Enterprise Program, then Apple will send you more information about how to distribute your app across your company.

riffin,   Love your icon. I play guitar too. Is that a PRS?   I'm also working on a feature article about mobile apps developers and how they go about setting up their businesses. Sounds like you're familiar with the process. Would you be willing to share some insights with ITworld readers? You can email me directly at Look forward to hearing from you.   Chris Nerney
