I just got rejected from the iPhone Beta SDK Program. It feels (and reads) like getting dumped or turned down for a job. There is even a part of the email that is equivalent to "We will keep your resume on file".

The unfortunate thing is that while you can write applications on the iPhone simulator without being accepted to the program, you can't get anything on to a real iPhone without being part of the program. The simulator doesn't support many of the interesting features, including OpenGL, the accelerometers.

Hopefully the iPhone hacking community will remedy this problem soon.

Dear Registered iPhone Developer,

Thank you for expressing interest in the iPhone Developer Program. We have received your enrollment request. As this time, the iPhone Developer Program is available to a limited number of developers and we plan to expand during the beta period. We will contact you again regarding your enrollment status at the appropriate time.

Thank you for applying.

Best regards,

iPhone Developer Program
