iPhone SDK downloads top 100,000

The iPhone
Software Development Kit
(SDK) has been downloaded over 100,000 times since
it was unveiled last week
. The SDK allows third-party developers to make
applications for the iPhone and iPod touch.

The iPhone SDK has been one of the most talked about pieces of software coming
out of Cupertino for some time. Developers and consumers alike wondered how
robust the SDK would be when it was finally released.

As it turns out, Apple gave them the same tools that it uses to make applications
for the iPhone -- a move that excited
developers about making applications
for the device.

Apple showed
off several applications during the launch event
including an instant messaging
client from AOL. Games from Apple
and Electronic Arts
were also highlighted during the event, showing developers what could be done
with the SDK.

Other companies have already jumped on the iPhone application bandwagon. Six
Apart
, makers of TypePad blogging software said they have an application
in the works and so does Intuit.

Apple said the launch video posted last week has been watched over one million
times.

The SDK beta is available for download
from Apple's Web site
.
