so i know Google and Adobe has bought the rights from some 3rd party developers work in the past to use in their software... has it ever happened with Apple? has Apple ever purchased a program to use as a default app in the OS from a 3rd party or freelance developer? maybe not so much an application for the applications folder, but perhaps a utility or a plugin / addon for one of their apps? or do they make everything themselves? what channels would one take to have their work reviewed by a big company like Apple? i don't have anything to promote, i'm just being curious.
