So let me get this straight before I get too worked up: Apple has been banning apps that were originally written in Flash, but ported over to iPhone/iPad? Or is the 'unported' Flash that they are banning?

The former is the only type of thing they can ban. If Flash is 'unported' it is just.... well, Flash and isn't supported by the iPhone anyways.

To answer your question: Yes, Apple is banning apps that were originally written in flash but ported to something that can be used in an iPhone/iPad/iPod.

Apple is basically making it impossible to port Flash apps to the iPhone OS without completely rewriting them. Adobe has a program that will automatically convert Flash apps to the iPhone format, but this rule disallows anything ported using that tool as well.

Aaaaaand this is why people need to stop buying iPhones and go with Android! :D

On one hand, I guess there is some EULA or something that Apple users and such adhere to when they buy their iPhones and iPads. Maybe they are taking a stand here to protect iPhone/Pad security and stability?

That being said, this reeks of protectionism. I don't know enough about iPhone/Pad software development to understand why apple would do this. Does this take revenue away from Apple somehow? (ie. less sales on developer tools?)

Banning Flash in this manner, for any reason, seems like a mistake to me due to its popularity.

And it's why Adobe needs to get off their asses and port Flash to Android already.

True enough there are issues with Android I am learning. But at least it's not like trying to put one over on the Gestapo when developing for it, lol.
