If you're like me, and just downloaded Flash CS5 to test out it's ability to create iPhone apps, only to be stopped by the fact that you have to spend money at apple to be a developer, then this instrucatable is for you.
This instructable will show you how to export a Flash iPhone project to an IPA without a Developer Connection with Apple, and then how to test that app on your iPhone.
Please note, you still will not be able to publish the apps that you create on Apples AppStore. (Well I don't know what would happen if you tried, but I don't see it turning out well).
Here's what you'll need:
- Flash CS5
- iPhone/iPod Touch
- The iPhone/iPod Touch needs to be jailbroken
- You need to be able to install IPAs by dragging them into iTunes or some other method
You'll need to look up instructions on the latter two if you're not sure on what those are.
To be honest I'm not 100% sure that your iPhone needs to be jailbroken before doing this. So if someone without a jailbroken iPhone wants to try this, by all means do and let me know how that works out.
Step 1: Design Your App in Flash
The first step is designing your test App in Flash CS5.
Once Flash is open go to the File menu and chose New...
And then in the New Document dialog, choose iPhone OS, and then click OK.
You should see a blank white box.
Using the Text tool on the right side of the screen, write some words in the box.
