Flash apps on the iPhone

Strange but true.

Yesterday at MAX Adobe announced that designers and developers will be able to use Adobe Flash Professional CS5 to create rich, interactive applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This announcement means that Flash designers and developers can use Flash Professional CS5 and ActionScript 3 to build native applications that can be distributed and downloaded via the Apple App Store. How cool is that?

For more information, check out the labs page here. There are even some games available for downloading already. As I don’t yet have an iPhone, I have not tested them, and can only advise that they download to my son’s iPod Touch, which will have to do for now.

Flash CS5 beta will soon be available on labs, so do sign up to be emailed when the beta starts.
