Apple recently reversed its earlier decision to restrict third-party developer tools to be used to build iPhone applications. Now, software developers can use Adobe’s Packager for the iPhone, which helps software developers transform Flash applications to the iPhone format.
It is interesting to note that while software developers can now use the Adobe Packager, they are still restricted from delivering pure Flash applications for the iPhone. Why is Apple restricting the Flash Platform from the iPhone? Is this decision technical, political, or just business?
