    Well now apple have change the licence agreement to ban adobe's iPhone flash compiler.

    The change in the agreement has left some wondering about other tools they are using and how they come under the new the new agreement.

    The change in question in the agreement is;

    Programs

    Yes
    PhoneGap: Yes this has been confirmed by apple themselves so no need to explain why this is still go;
    Titanium: This is almost the same as PhoneGap;
    QuickConnectiPhone: Again a PhoneGap alternative;
    NimbleKit: Same as above;
    MonoTouch: Apps are written in C#;
    AirPlaySDK: Apps writen in C++;
    DragonFireSDK: Apps writen in C++;

    Unknown
    Sentenza: but really that can't be submitted to the appstore anyway i don't think??:
    (I don't know of anymore.)


    No
    Adobe Flash CS5: This converts the flash straight to iPhone machine code, bypassing the converting to a C based language that the others do meaning that the 4.0 multitasking that shuts down parts of the app saving ram while keeping it open can't understand it.

    Does Google have restrictions on what applications can be installed on Android devices or the tools used to create them? What about Microsoft with Windows Mobile?

    I was seriously considering getting an iPad. I think I'll wait awhile and see what Google's android pad looks like.

    The inability to install whatever I want definitely is a deal breaker for me. I hope Apple makes some changes soon.

    You didn't follow all the app store stuff, did you? Apple won't change this. It's like it's done on their platform. It was never different. Apple won't let you install whatever you want.
    There's still the jailbreak, though.

    For now. What's to stop Apple from fixing the "flaw" that allows the jailbreak?

    I really hope the press and/or the justice department can force Apple into opening up the iPhone OS. Apple has the right to say what they will or won't sell on iTunes, but that shouldn't be our only source for software.

    Recently a publisher of political cartoons had an app turned down. This is crazy!

    This was a mistake done by Apple. The app is getting resubmitted as far as I know. And why should anybody be able to force a company to let their devices do something specific. Really I don't get this stuff. It's one thing to want something, it's another thing to force someone to do it.

    Edit: I want Apple to open up the system a bit, too. This is not against you, I just find this strange. If you don't want this stuff like it is one should look for another product, created by another company.

    Ummm, probably not…
    Can you imagine a company like Adobe releasing stuff to Cydia?
