As the mobile development market matures, will will start to see commercial ideas more normal on the desktop/server applied to mobile. One such idea is Verious which comes across as a ComponentSource for mobile… with a twist. The twist being that potential buyers can request and vote on components
Verious lists iOS and Android components and SDKs. If you wish to sell components, they takes between 20 and 40% commission – currently set at 20% until December 31 2011.
In past years, tools and components for mobile weren’t viable because there simply weren’t enough developers. However, I think we have reached a tipping point where supplying the tools can become a business in itself.
