    Yes, but not at the moment.

    Adobe is releasing Flash CS5 in the near future which will allow exporting to .app

    Yes you can but the setup is not very simple.

    There is a way actually, through the iPhone 2.0 Toolchain on Cydia.

    I talked about it in a recent blog post: How to Make iPhone apps on any OS, on the iPhone itself, for free The Big Wide Internets

    This can be done by the following steps, but not quite sure about it.
    * jailbreak the iPhone
    * install Ruby + Sinatra on the iPhone
    * write the app using Sinatra, hitting a database (SQLite?) on the iPhone.
    mod/edit links removed

    Yep. This guy wants to write apps, but didn't even go so far as to find out if he needed a PC or a Mac. Sounds like a self-starter to me. He'll go far!
