Adobe Responds to Apple’s Recent Smackdown

Yesterday Apple updated their Development rules to exclude Apps created with 3rd party tools like Adobe’s upcoming CS5 which is touting the ability to port Flash and other CS5 developed apps directly to the iPhone via a conversion tool. I asked the folks at Adobe for a comment and they came back with this generic response, but I’m sure we’ll hear more about this in the future. I was all set to try and develop for the iPad but Apple is making it really tough to continue to support them. They’ve become as draconian as the Apple fantards claim MS is. I mean really, I have a iPad, then yesterday they announce that the iPhone 4.0 SDK won’t work with my 3G iPhone and I won’t even be able to get the multi-tasking on my Janky iPad that won’t connect to the internet. I’m ready to completely abandon Apple and go back to Windows and dump my iPhone. I’m tired of their BS.  Anyway, here’s Adobe’s response – “We are aware of Apple’s new SDK language and are looking into it. We continue to develop our Packager for iPhone OS technology, which we plan to debut in Flash CS5,” said an Adobe Spokesperson.
