    Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by @comex (one of the iPhone dev team). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.

    A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort at http://github.com/comex/frash - fork it and send a pull request with your patches.

    Looks pretty smooth to me, props to comex. What do you think guys, good or bad?

    This kind of settles the whole Apple/Adobe thing, doesn't it? It doesn't seem to be killing performance like Mr. Jobs said it would.

    From the youtube description, it looks like it will only run on anything 3GS onwards. Someone might port it to the earlier devices but it wont run smoothly I reckon.
