    well, yeah, but there is another reason.
    this was mentioned in the open letter, but i will sum it up.

    - First of all, apple has the ability to control what goes in their store. Its their store and they can restrict what they want. But yes, they are greedy pigs too.

    - The flash development kit was made so that developers could make apps for multiple different platforms, but only making the app once. This means that they only get access to the most minimal feature-set of the different platforms.

    - Also, flash developers arent really developers. They dont have to know any kind of coding. I mean, arun made that 'you cant escape' flash thing...imaging hundreds of thousands of iphone apps as crappy as that.


    Another argument that flash fanboys make is that you cant play flash games on the iphone. who needs to? there are 200,000+ apps in the app store, and almost half (maybe more) of those are games.

    Edit: I just remembered you can develop iphone apps in java.

    Obvious is obvious, but that is their primary reason (Greed).

    What "flash development kit"? Java works the same way (works on multiple platforms). A flash app developed for IPHONE will not work on PC, it has to be coded and exported for IPHONE...

    Flash developers aren't coders? Nigga do some research before you post. Flash uses ACTIONSCRIPT. Saying something like that would make you look stupid. Although, I think allowing flash apps in the Iphone store is a bad move. App store is full of crappy apps, 200k or so?

    There is tons of crap in the app store... flash games are excellent for iphones, they can be made relatively quickly. All games in the APP store could be made in flash much more easier and readily, not to mention most of those games are based off of ideas from flash games... Apple + Adobe fail

    yes, both do fail.

    and, dave didnt really win.
    he gave a counterpoint to a few of my points.

    I dont really care what apple does.
    the only site i need that uses flash (and doesnt have an html5 version) is hulu, and even that doesnt work on flash enabled mobile phones.

    I also dont care how greedy they are. Obviously there are plenty of developers, and plenty of apps.
    Now, maybe if I was a windows user, and a developer that wanted to make an iphone app, that would be different and I would have an argument here.

    But, adobe are ass holes to apple, and vice versa. It's like two little kids arguing. Apple doesnt put flash on their iDevices, adobe refuses to make a good flash plugin for OS X, apple takes away their flash app privileges, etc...
