As we all know iPhone development is generally done using xCode. However, there are other options for iPhone Development as well. Recently Adobe CS5 was released which can also be used to develop an iPhone app.
Just before the release, Apple released iPhone OS 4 SDKs with changes in policy. It’s clearly written in the new policy agreement that from here onward Apple will not accept apps for iPhone written using Adobe CS5 or Mono Touch cross-compilers or any other cross-compilers.
This was first spotted by John Gruber, who later posted on his blog about how this move of Apple is better for iPhone development from a user’s and iPhone application developer’s perspective.This issue gained a further new height when Steve Jobs and CEO of TaoEffect, Greg Slepak’s conversation was revealed on Mashable and many other sites.
On a brief research on the web, you’ll easily find different iPhone developers have different thoughts on this new policy. However, most well known developers of iPhone say that it’s a must for Apple Inc. to have such new policy to continue to deliver same user experience which users had since the beginning of iPhone’s launch.
