    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can elaborate on this. Is it true compiling from Flash to an iPhone app will produce poor quality code? If so, how come?

    I am aware of some other reasons, but I'm interested to see what everyone else thinks, particularly the above question though.

    EDIT: here's a quote from the developer agreement:
    How come they can't link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool?

    Apple says that it is to maintain app quality. What they likely mean by this is that there's no inefficiency due to the non-optimal translation from a third-party environment. Other people have made arguments that it will cause developers to get lazy. Whether or not the translation will actually result in non-optimal code that hogs resources is not for me to answer since I'm not an App developer :D

    The reason apple and flash won't mesh goes back to personal vendettas that haven't been resolved yet.

    Best thread resurrection I've seen in awhile.
