It's still a little way off from meaning anything to the average user, but the enterprising folks over at iPhone Dev Wiki have finally turned out binaries and source code for their very first compiled iPhone app. Of course, all it does is spit out the ubiquitous programmer shout-out "Hello World," but make no mistake -- this is a huge step in getting usable, real-world apps into end users' hands without Apple's or AT&T's official blessing, and the fact that anyone can download this source and roll their own proof of concept is pretty darned comforting. "Hello World," indeed.
