Adobe announced on Tuesday that Flash
developers will be able to create applications that run natively on the iPhone, but the ability to have Flash plugged into Safari remains missing.
During the keynote of the company's Max conference in the US, Johnny Loiacono, Adobe senior vice president of its creative solutions business unit, demonstrated the ability to export an application to the iPhone having been built within Adobe Flash Professional CS5.
Adobe's chief technology officer Kevin Lynch said Adobe needed Apple to support the APIs required to implement Flash within the iPhone's Safari browser. "When Apple is ready to bring the full web-browsing experience to iPhone users, we'll be ready to bring Flash Player to Safari," Lynch said.
