Adobe Drops iPhone Development

Adobe has announced it will no longer invest in Flash CS5 for the iPhone due to a change made by Apple in the iPhone developer program license.

In a blog post Adobe said “We will still be shipping the ability to target the iPhone and iPad in Flash CS5. However, we are not currently planning any additional investments in that feature.”

Adobe encouraged Flash developers to work on Google’s Android platform. “Fortunately, the iPhone isn’t the only game in town. Android based phones have been doing well behind the success of the Motorola Droid and Nexus One, and there are a number of Android based tablets slated to be released this year. We are working closely with Google to bring both Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.0 to these devices, and thus far, the results have been very promising.”
