    What options do I have if I want to create animations for developing a game targeting the iPhone & iPad?

    Is there any authoring tool similar to flash for creating animations and later integrate these animations into iphone game application? Or 'programming the animation' is the only option?

    I know flash cs5 is going to provide an iphone packager but i dont know how much of native iPhone APIs will be supported by it. One important requirement in my project is ability to launch other iphone applications or games through button-click.

    You can create videos on Flash, iMovie, Final Cut, Motion or any other video editors and play it full screen on the iPhone. If you want to open a page on Safari or iTunes, you can use the code bellow:

    Code:
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://myitunesorsafariurlgoeshere"]];
    
    If you want other kinds of animations, use Core Animation.
