Giving In

I’ve tried very hard to avoid agreeing to section 3.3.1.

I had the foresight to renew my provisioning profile April the 21st, just before I would have had to accept the updated agreement to access to provisioning portal. This has allowed me to keep developing so far.

Even so, provisioning profiles only last three months. So as I predicted, I’m now unable to load new builds on my device, or even run already loaded applications that I signed, since the 21st of July.

Tomorrow I will be going in holidays, to a place that will be ideal to try out an iPhone application prototype I developed and validate its concept in the field.

Because even though the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement and the iOS App Store may be a pain in the body part of choice to deal with, the iPhone is still an amazingly integrated piece of hardware, more importantly underlying an excellent platform which is, IMNSHO, still way ahead of the competition.

In order to try out that prototype application, I need to be able to run it in the first place.

To run it, I need a renewed provisioning profile.

To get a renewed provisioning profile, I need access to the provisioning portal.

To get access to the provisioning portal, I need to accept the updated agreement.

I’m sorry, everyone.
