JanRain Brings OpenID And Other Single Sign-On Options To iPhone Apps

The only thing more cumbersome than creating a new account at every Website you want to sign into is having to create a new account before you can enjoy an iPhone app. The Web is well on its way to solving this problem with OpenID, Facebook Connect, and other universal identity systems. And, of course, plenty of iPhone apps use Facebook Connect or Twitter OAuth already. But today iPhone developers are getting a new option from JanRain: a menu of sign-in options from OpenID providers (Google, Yahoo, AOL) to Facebook Connect to Twitter.
