It's also worth noting that if you want to use iCloud, sandboxing is a
IMHO, sandboxing was rushed out without real world testing. Apple
announced sandboxing to developers in June and with a GM just a few
weeks later, Lion shipped in July. As far as I can tell, there have
been no documented changes/fixes to the sandbox issues in either
10.7.1 or 10.7.2. Apple is often quite vague about what it fixes in
its updates, so it is possible they did something, but did not
document it. And there are no indications of fixes for any of the
issues mentioned in the devforums.
So while the argument can be made that apps aren't required to use the
sandbox, it quickly becomes a hindrance both in making your app
available and supporting things like iCloud.
