So.. it seems Apple changed this week their iPhone OS user agreement to include the following:
“3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs.'”
This is most of all a stab in back of Adobe, who was planning to launch on the 12th April their new Flash CS5 that included a Flash-to-native compiler that now becomes… not so useful.
True evil stuff no?
Update: I was told that the particular bit I mentioned has been in for a while but has been extended to the following:
They are restricting people to use a particular technology that is as valid as any other. And in that sense it is evil I think.
On the other hand, Apple had already made it clear they would not support Flash on the iPhone/iPad so I guess it is only natural that they oppose any attempt by Adobe to circumvent that.
