This week has been a very busy one for Apple because they announced some new things for their iPhones; the first one is the new 4.0 OS that will be bringing some new goodies regarding the multitasking on the iPhone and another one is the new beta SDK for the developers. The release of new OS was not as such extra-ordinary one for the mobile world because many of its new features are actually the key features of Android OS and the mobile world is well aware of them. The new beta SDK was actually the surprising one not only for the mobile industry but mainly for Adobe who has been given the finger by Apple.

Apple has banned any kind of application on the iPhone which will be using Adobe and this is going to be a great threat for Adobe CS5 which is going to be released in the coming days. In the License agreement provided for the application developers it can be clearly seen what the company want to tell the developers, one of the key point regarding this matter says

3.3.1 — Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs. Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited)”

Now this thing would be surely surrounding in the minds of people that, will this only affect Adobe or only Apple or both will get a share of this. The later steps by both of these companies will surely help us in sorting out this issue.
