    Hi, gentlemen!

    i'm new in iPhone/iPad programming, but have some years of general experience in Windows and Linux, low-level included.

    Now I need to solve a design problem in iXXX programming.

    Is it possible to create a sort of Loader application? This Loader should parse the AppStore, download any requested app and run it. Also it must directly run already downloaded apps if required...

    I'm OK with C++ and learning Object-C + iPhone SDK now.

    Many thanks for any help provided.

    App-store apps aren't permitted to download executables, nor to launch or terminate resident executables.

    If you want something like that, you have to take the jailbreak path.

    Yep, I understand.

    And I did a sort of loader for non-AppStore. It even worked. For my 1week experience with Apple products it's OK for now.
