    To elaborate more, if you use these libraries in a project then that project will need to be licensed as GPL and the source code will need to be provided to the users. So if you are creating a closed source project then I would look for libraries that are non-gpl to use. – Jamie Jan 10 '13 at 16:28

    This is only the case if you distribute your app – Nathan W Jan 11 '13 at 0:15
