What did he just say?
Back in October when I first discussed the new CS5 compile to iPhone workflow from Adobe, in my post titled “Apple’s greed to only help Adobe with Mobile Flash Player” I mentioned the following with the important part in bold:
“Adobe had to create a way to allow for applications built on the Flash Player to act as native iPhone applications. This was only possible by actually embedding the Flash Player within the application and then submitting the whole thing for approval to Apple just as any other application that goes to Apple for approval.”
The concept that the player was embedded within the compiled iPhone applications was quickly debated in the comments section of that post. Now we get the video below where at aprox. 2:58 Kevin Lynch says “The Flash runtime is integrated with the application“.

So, which is it? Are the Flash/iPhone applications compiled with the Flash Player embedded within the iPhone application or is the Flash application converted to be a native iPhone application?
