Flash developers rejoice! You will now be able to deploy content initially intended for the Web and/or desktop environments as native applications for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch. This new support will be available via Adobe’s Flash Professional CS5 developer kit and strictly in the form of applications available through Apple’s App Store and not as Web-based content unfortunately.
While this is great news in terms of broadening the reach of Flash in the mobile environment, it would be great to see full support for Flash in the iPhone’s native browser Safari so users can experience all the Web has to offer.
