Now Develop iPhone Apps on Windows Using Adobe Flash CS5 and Actionscript 3

Posted on 16 October 2009

Keeping in view the increasing popularity of iPhone and the developer’s interest, the most interesting and unexpected thing of the year has been launched by Adobe. Now, it is possible to develop iPhone applications with Adobe Flash.

And it is not like some layer, similar to Adobe Air whose applications can run on Mac as well as Windows. The most amazing fact is that Adobe Flash CS5 has the capability to export the source code in the native iPhone format. Although Adobe flash CS5 is still in private beta, but you can already find a few apps that are available on the iTunes store, that have been developed with Adobe Flash CS5.

Some of these include:

Applications that have been developed with Flash CS5 are entitled to be approved for the iTunes store and are officially regarded compatible with iPhone OS 3.0 or higher.

The applications can also take advantage of iPhone hardware acceleration. The supported functionality comprises of:

  • Multi Touch
  • Screen Orientation
  • Saving images to Photo Library
  • Accelerometer
  • Geo-location
  • Cut / Copy / Paste

Keep in mind that the iPhone simulator which is included with the iPhone SDK which enables the  iPhone apps to run on a mac, will not support the apps developed with Adobe Flash CS5.

The existing flash apps can be exported by Flash developers as iPhone compatible format, provided they are developed with Actionscript 3.0.

However, do remember that Flash for iPhone has not come yet and your iPhone’s browser does not support swf files. But according to Adobe, they are working on that too.

    Great write up. The iPhone is truly revolutionary and I don’t like being without it. This time last year I had jumped in a pool with my iPhone and it was dead. I had to wait 9 days before I was able to get a new one. The phone I had was a cheap go phone. I really love all the games that can be downloaded to the iPhone. The best part about the iPhone to me is the ability to check emails on the go. Thanks for the information.
