    Well now apple have change the licence agreement to ban adobe's iPhone flash compiler.

    The change in the agreement has left some wondering about other tools they are using and how they come under the new the new agreement.

    The change in question in the agreement is;
    "Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C#, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C#, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs,"

    Programs

    Yes
    PhoneGap: Yes this has been confirmed by apple themselves so no need to explain why this is still go;
    Titanium: This is almost the same as PhoneGap;
    QuickConnectiPhone: Again a PhoneGap alternative;
    NimbleKit: Same as above;
    MonoTouch: Apps are written in C#;
    AirPlaySDK: Apps writen in C++;
    DragonFireSDK: Apps writen in C++;

    Unknown
    Sentenza: but really that can't be submitted to the appstore anyway i don't think??:
    (I don't know of anymore.)


    No
    Adobe Flash CS5: This converts the flash straight to iPhone machine code, bypassing the converting to a C based language that the others do meaning that the 4.0 multitasking that shuts down parts of the app saving ram while keeping it open can't understand it.

    I'm guessing they did this mainly due to the bad coding of Flash for Mac.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
