Apple messing with the wrong company: Adobe

Yesterday’s exciting release of Adobe CS5 included new features that allow users to build programs in Flash and then convert the software into IPhone Apps which can then be sold in the IPhone Apps Store.  This technology is one of many improvements Adobe has made in the effort to allow designers to develop applications without writing code.

Prior to the major release made by Adobe, Apple made a change to their developer agreement (Clause 3.3.1) that only allows applications that are built in Apple’s approved programming languages – Object C and C++. This clause is directly geared toward programs that are developed in Flash and the new technology that Adobe has worked hard to release.
