Apple The backlash is starting to show. The most recent change in Apple's iPhone developer agreement isn't going down well. The change is clearly aimed at increasing lock-in, and seems to have little to nothing to do with anything else. While individual developers are hit hard, Adobe as a whole has been hit pretty hard too, giving rise to sentiments on the web that Adobe should abandon Mac development. I have the sneaking suspicion this is exactly what Apple is aiming for.

So Apple gives you two very clear choices. You want to be a native app on the iPhone? You write an Obj-C app using their development tools.


So Apple limits you to two options, one of which has no freedom of language or even development tools and the other due to being non-native has limited functionality and subpar performance.

At least that's how I see it.
