adeelarshad82 writes “Adobe’s principal product manager Mike Chambers announced that Adobe is no longer investing in iPhone-based Flash development. The move comes after Apple put out new draft of its iPhone developer program license, which banned private APIs and required apps to be written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine. According to Chambers, Adobe will still provide the ability to target the iPhone and iPad in Flash CS5, but the company is not currently planning any additional investments in that feature.”

Daring Fireball points out approvingly Apple’s rebuttal to the claim that Flash is an open format, however convenient it might be for iPad owners.

The press release names several apps that have made it past app review process since the new Apple SDK agreement.”
