Adobe Resumes Work on iPhone Tool
Let's all wish that the rift between Adobe and Apple will be over soon. Admit it, life's different without Adobe Flash.
Apple’s announcement today that it has lifted restrictions on its third-party developer guidelines has direct implications for Adobe’s Packager for iPhone, a feature in the Flash Professional CS5 authoring tool. This feature was created to enable Flash developers to quickly and easily deliver applications for iOS devices. The feature is available for developers to use today in Flash Professional CS5, and we will now resume development work on this feature for future releases.
But don’t think Apple is giving up. This doesn’t mean that Flash will return immediately. Pharmacologically speaking, users are allowed to use generic systems for iPhone app creation. Apple frameworks remains to be better. We also think, in light of the new Apple App Store rules, that the potential abuse of these frameworks are less. Even if it’s easier to blow up an application in Flash, I doubt that this burst passed the approval stage.View Article Source »
