Flash (or Silverlight) on the iPhone



I’m interested in developing applications on the iPhone and being a .NET & ActionScript developer I’m a bit scared from the learning curve of Objective-C Cocoa Touch programming. I know that Adobe has Flash player ready for iPhone and I think that Apple doesn’t want it just for political reason. Is there any easy alternative to build applications that access the internal GPS, phone etc. without using Objective-C and Cocoa Touch?





Currently there is no other way. As a long time Apple Fanboy I’ve learnt one thing time and time again “It’s Steve’s way or the highway”. If Steve says no Flash then you can bet your sweet little bippy that there will be no Flash. So either develop a web app, or learn Objective-C. I’m a JAVA head and I learnt all I needed to know in about a month, in my spare time, so it’s not as bad as it first seems.
