Flash is coming to Iphone


Flash is finally going to hit the iPhone (No word on how soon yet). Even though it may not be in the form that we originally wanted it in.

Adobe has some new features to reveal to us that are expected in Flash Professional CS5.  Unlike originally expected flash will not be in the form of a Safari plugin. Flash Professional CS5 brings new features that will allow flash programs to be re-packaged to run natively on the iPhone and be distributed over the app-store. This opens a  whole new venue, allowing developers to easily develop their applications if they are comfortable using flash. We may also see some pretty neat app-based interactive web sites. However, as one iPhone blog stated “a tsunami of craplets may ensue.” Adobe has already released about 7 of these flash applications on the app-store to try out (Chroma Circuit, Trading Stuff, Fickleblox, Just Letters, South Park, The Roach Game, and Red Hood.)

Also, the release of Flash Professional CS5, will also allow Windows users to develop flash applications for the iPhone as well! (Although you still need a developer certificate from apple to distribute the software.)

No word yet on the official release date of Flash Professional CS5 but public betas are expected to be released later this year. You can check on that here.
