Flash applications for the Apple iPhone

Adobe announced Flash applications for the iPhone at the keynote of Adobe Max 2009. With the upcoming version of Flash Professional (CS5), Adobe provides the possiblity to export Flash applications as native iPhone applications. Flash CS5 converts the ActionScript3 projects and creates ipa files, which can submitted to Apple iPhone AppStore. Six Flash based samples apps are already available at the AppStore, more details can found here. So, this solution let you build iPhone application with your existing skills and tool set, no Xcode or Objective-C needed.

Furthermore, their is no Flash Plugin for the Browser Safari available.  Since yesterday, Adobe had also set up a new website, when you try to install Flash player on the iPhone. Adobe get it to the point why it’s not available 😉 Check out the link.

This is the MystHackers video from the Adobe Max Keynote with Kevin Lynch (CTO) and Johnny Loiacono (SVP Creative Suite Unit) test possiblities how to get Flash on the iPhone.

An other interesting fact about this soultion is that you need no Mac computer anymore to build iPhone applicatons.
