Apple John Gruber has found out that cross-compilers are no longer allowed in iPhone OS 4.0. "My reading of this new language is that cross-compilers, such as the Flash-to-iPhone compiler in Adobe's upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release, are prohibited. This also bans apps compiled using MonoTouch - a tool that compiles C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. It's unclear what this means for tools like Titanium and PhoneGap, which let developers write JavaScript code that runs in WebKit inside a native iPhone app wrapper. They might be OK."

Apple's method

Apple's iPhone policies seem pretty consistent to me.

You will develop for us, and only us. You will do so in the manner we specify, and you will only develop the programs we allow you to. Should your programs be of value, we will pay you, though you must never forget you create at our pleasure. You shall never speak of this agreement.
