Appcelerator Titanium has ALREADY responded to apples new T&Cs by sending their developers an email telling them there is no need to worry ! (Provided they keep using Appcelerator Titanium !)

We've had over 50 applications approved for the App Store over the past 3 weeks under the new terms (which every developer now needs to agree to). Not a single one has been rejected for being built on Titanium. We even updated our own test app, Snapost, after accepting the new terms.

whereas Mike Chambers thinks that

developers should be prepared for Apple to remove existing content and applications (100+ on the store today) created with Flash CS5 from the iTunes store.

Adobe OnAir AIR 2008 Tour

Had a fantastic day yesterday at the Adobe OnAir AIR 2008 Tour in London.

Adobe AIR brings Rich Internet Applications to the desktop of all three OS's ! You can use AIR to turn HTML file(s) and JavaScript file(s) into an executable for ANY platform – its a bit like "JVM + FileSystem + SQLite" !

AIR uses WebKit and is therefore compatible with your favorite JavaScript framework and even Google Gears !

Install the runtime, and check out the newest applications.
