Currently, Apple’s iPhone doesn’t support Flash. While they haven’t been able to change Apple’s mind on supporting Flash, the folks at Adobe are working on a workaround. In their latest package of Flash developer tools, they’ll include a “Packager for iPhone,” which will automatically turn any Flash app into an iPhone app.
Estimates say that 125,000 developers are currently working on iPhone apps. By contrast 2 million developers are working on Flash apps. As a result, TechCrunch warns, “If you thought there were a lot of iPhone apps now, just wait until the Flash floodgates are open.”
Adobe’s Creative Suite 5, including the Packager for iPhone, is currently in beta and is expected to be released later this year.
