Apple’s announcement yesterday that it has lifted restrictions on its third-party developer guidelines has direct implications for Adobe’s Packager for iPhone, a feature in the Flash Professional CS5 authoring tool.
Adobe has announced via blog posting that the company will now resume development work on this feature for future releases.
Adobe reports hearing from developers that Packager apps are already being approved for the App Store.
In the blog post, Adobe takes pains to mention that Apple’s restriction on Flash content running in the browser on iOS devices remains in place.

MacDailyNews Take: As always, we hope that this results in innovative apps, not just the excretion of lowest common denominator apps. We don’t need a bunch of crappy ports that fail to take advantage of iOS’ unique capabilities.
