Apple Releases iAd Producer

Apple has just released iAd Producer, a Mac program that allows developers (and non-developers alike) to create iAds using a simple point-and-click interface. The application has a variety of templates to choose from, along with built-in animations and components. The ads can then be simulated on a Mac or iOS device.

iAd Producer makes it easy for you to design and assemble high-impact, interactive content for iAd. iAd Producer automatically manages the HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript behind your iAd to make creating beautiful, motion-rich iAd content as easy as point and click.

For advanced developers, iAd Producer offers sophisticated JavaScript editing and debugging, along with a powerful extension mechanism that enables them to create and re-use their own page templates and components.

It’s very possible that this tool could be used for non-ad content, and may eventually become a powerful WYSIWYG editor for various HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript applications.

At the moment, the iAds program is only available to select companies, but the release of this program hints at a public release.

Note: You must be a member of the iOS Developer Program to download iAd Producer.
