    I dont know how many of you are watching the launch event...
    But just now I saw an interesting thing.
    You now can package your flash files into native .ipa file.
    This is a huuuge improvement!!!

    It would allow you to make iPhone applications using their software.

    This is by no means awesome. Mad props to Apple for banning compatibility layers. I really don't want the App Store filled with sh*te flash apps.

    As Shåwa said, they may allow you to package them into an IPA, but Apple has already said that anything using an abstraction/translation layer will not be accepted into the App Store.

    A few of the programs that use this are Game Salad, Unity, Torque, Flash.

    I'm really happy that they've done this, it stops countless amounts of rubbish entering the App Store. If you're serious about iPhone game development you'll use native OS languages.
