Adobe CTO comments on Flash & the App Store

Adobe Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch has touched briefly on some new features in CS5 (hope you can attend the launch on Monday) and provides a short response to yesterday’s news from Apple:

So, what’s all the fuss about the Apple proposed revised SDK license?

Yesterday Apple released some proposed changes to their SDK license restricting the technologies that developers can use, including Adobe software and others such as Unity and Titanium.

First of all, the ability to package an application for the iPhone or iPad is one feature in one product in Creative Suite. CS5 consists of 15 industry-leading applications, which contain hundreds of new capabilities and a ton of innovation. We intend to still deliver this capability in CS5 and it is up to Apple whether they choose to allow or disallow applications as their rules shift over time.

Secondly, multiscreen is growing beyond Apple’s devices. This year we will see a wide range of excellent smartphones, tablets, smartbooks, televisions and more coming to market and we are continuing to work with partners across this whole range to enable your content and applications to be viewed, interacted with and purchased.

Oh God, this is so great. I raise a forkful of ghost meat in salute to Pac Man & co. Full-screen viewing is a must.
