  • Adobe Gets Back to Business on iPhone Dev Tool



    The folks at Adobe are wasting no time getting back to business. With Apple having removed the restrictions on Thursday that had previously blocked Adobe's Flash to iPhone porting tool, Adobe is now back work on developing the tool for subsequent releases of Flash Professional. With 24 hours of Apple's announcement, Adobe stated on it's website that work would resume immediately. "We are encouraged to see Apple lifting its restrictions on its licensing terms," the company said, "giving developers the freedom to choose what tools they use to develop applications for Apple devices."

    In addition to Apple's revelation that iOS would, at long last, be open to third-party development tools - that is, "as long as the resulting apps do not download any code" - Apple also published to everyone's pleasant surprise the App Store Review Guidelines. With an infamously private company like Apple suddenly becoming more transparent and flexible, it's no wonder that there are plenty of developers with renewed excitement about iOS this weekend. Of course, no one is more excited about the change in policy at Apple than the people at Adobe.

    "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," Adobe stated in a press release. "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."

      Well yes that article states how Apple is allowing it. This article is stating that Adobe will now put people back on the development for the tool since they stopped work on it when Apple put the rules in place.

      This is Adobe's statement on their plan and that other article was Apple's statement on the policy and the writer's idea to what the next moves may include.

      How about let us actually have Flash player or I want YouTube to go fully HTML5 as the iPhone YouTube comes up with annoying notices how it's not supported on iPhone or the video takes forever to load or not at all. So annoying...

      A step in the right direction.
      Hopefully it's only a few months now, before someone releases a Flash browser plug-in.
      Then I can watch the weather forecast video.
