Adobe Resurrects Flash-To-iOS Tool

Adobe has rekindled its Packager for iPhone tool, designed to turn Flash applications into iOS apps.

The move follows Apple' removing the restrictions it had earlier imposed on the use of third part developer tools in applications for its platform.

When Apple had initially banned the use of third party app compiler tools, Adobe had stopped all development on its Packager tool, which allowed developers to port Flash applications on iOS devices.

Apple's ban was a part of its efforts to prevent Adobe's Flash platform running on Apple devices.

Since Apple removed the restriction, Adobe has said that Flash developers can confirmed that Packager apps are being approved on Apple's App Store.

The company wrote in a blog post: “Adobe will continue to work to bring full web browsing with Flash Player 10.1 as well as standalone applications on AIR to a broad range of devices,”

Adobe has also pointed out that Apple continues to ban Flash Player from browsers running on iOS devices.
