Adobe Flash CS5 as an iPhone SDK for Windows?

As we all know, developing for the iPhone is very limited to Windows users, due to the popular SDK made only for Mac OS X.

Well Adobe are going to allows users to develop iPhone applications through ActionScript 3 on Adobe Flash CS5, then convert it to IPA.

Some examples on the AppStore which have been developed through ActionScript 3 include Red Hood, South Park and FickleBlox.

The new support for iPhone applications included in Flash Professional CS5 will not allow iPhone users to browse web content built with Flash technology on iPhone, but it may allow developers to repackage existing web content as applications for iPhone if they choose to do so.

There are a few limitations, such as all the applications developed through this program will require the iPhone OS 3.0 or later.

However, they should be able to work on all iPhones and iPod touches.  You will be required to participate in Apple’s Developer Program in order to publish your apps to the AppStore.

Who knows what this could bring to the iPhone and iPod touch.  More developers, that’s for sure!
