Several groups are interested in hosting iPhone apps, but they wouldn’t be officially blessed by Apple, meaning they’re not signed by our favorite fruity gadget maker. Which means to install one of these apps from outside the iTunes environment you must jailbreak your iPhone.

Why not just host these apps on iTunes with all the rest? Well, it appears Apple takes its sweet time to get a developer’s app into the cloud turning it into a minor crisis. And then there’s the whole porn thing that turns your iPhone into a smut emporium.

So if you’re interested in non-Apple certified apps, apps that that Apple hasn’t censored, then you’re only solution is to jailbreak the phone. The cause and effect part i’ve outlined is not news, what’s news is that it appears the desire for alternative non-blessed applications may be building to the point that it’s worth trying to act as an alternative to big brother.
