UK's Channel 4 forms iPhone 3.0 dev fund

Channel 4 iPhone 3.0 fund

UK broadcaster Channel 4 has set up a special fund for iPhone 3.0 development, according to an announcement. As a part of its 4 Innovation for the Public (4iP) project, the company is setting aside 100,000 (approximately $145,760) for developers looking to build games and other iPhone apps that serve its public purposes. Individual development groups will be able to claim up to 30,000, though it is likely that actual payouts will be substantially less. Opportunities for grant proposals are slated to close on April 16th.

The Channel 4 fund comes in spite of an anticipated 100 million annual budget shortfall during the next several years. 2009 marks only the second year in which 4iP has operated however, having already resulted in other software such an iPhone sound recorder called AudioBoo. Other efforts have included the social learning network School of Everything.

    Hmmm

    Channel 4 can't even be bothered to make a Mac compliant version of their on-line viewing catch up service, so how about getting that together first?
