Not true. GPL doesn't forbid selling and never has. RMS used to make 
money selling emacs tapes.

All it requires is that you accompany your sale either with a copy of 
the source code, or a promise to make source available. Posting the 
source on a public web site would meet this requirement.

Does anything in the iPhone SDK forbid you from posting your source?
