Apple relaxes iOS development tool restrictions

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

Iphone 1

An anonymous reader writes "Earlier this year Apple caused major upset among developers by updating the iPhone developer program license with clause 3.3.1. It basically stopped the use of cross-platform compilers, meaning Adobe Flash could not be used to develop an app for the App Store. The move also put into doubt which other development platforms could be used and generally caused a lot of confusion. Apple has just significantly relaxed that policy and allowed for the use of development tools, as long as "the resulting apps do not download any code"."

Statement by Apple (1)

amolapacificapaloma (1000830) | more than 3 years ago | (#33522016)

This is the actual statement by Apple [apple.com] .

Also, I've read some rumors [gizmodo.com] about the next iLife '11 having a new program for creating iOS apps in a similar way to the Android's AppInventor [googlelabs.com] . This new statement seems a like a pointer in that direction, otherwise they would have a hard time arguing about antitrust issues on the App Store...
