Adobe released recently a nice piece of news. You will be able to code Iphone application with Flash CS5 using AS3! This is a bit of a surprise since apple do not generally allow third party framework on their iphone platform.

All the information here.

  1. “This is a bit of a surprise since apple do not generally allow third party framework on their iphone platform.”

    FYI, it’s not actually Flash running on the iPhone. CS5 simply allow you to export into an IPA file, the native iPhone app format.

    So Apple has nothing to say on this. Great move from Adobe.

  2. well it had in the past, 3rd party frameworks export to native iphone file. But Apple do not allow you to work with other tools than those provided by Apple. It is in their licence.

    Check the phonegap saga for example.

  3. I tought you were talking about the actual Flash plugin not the tools used to develop.

    The problem with PhoneGap is that the actual toolkit is considered as a private API and allow the use of some private APIs, that’s what Apple doesn’t want in app store apps. You need to stick to the sandbox or else you get rejected.

    If Adobe did their job right they stick to available APIs, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Maybe Flash has a value now? Since Objective-C is not really my kind of thing, AS3 suits me better.

  4. You off all people, I wouldn’t have think AS3 would have suit you 😛

    Going to the dark side? 😛
