I think you are confusing the iPad and the iPhone.

Yes, I got that wrong. For the first year the iPhone didn't allow outside apps, then Jobs relented and the floodgates opened, which is what gave the iPad the treasure trove of already existing apps.

Jobs didn't envision apps?? He and his team invented them!!

I meant from outside vendors, which Jobs was loudly against (control!) until some of his lieutenants showed how the apps could be vetted (control!) and sold through the app store, taking a piece of the action just like iTunes with music.
