JavaScript hack enables Flash on iPhone


A rather clever programmer has managed to get the iPhone to run interactive apps created using Adobe's Flash platform. And because it works inside the Safari browser, it isn't subject to the dictatorial rules of Apple's App Store.

The software is called Gordon and it doesn't actually allow Flash to run natively on the iPhone. Instead, Gordon is a JavaScript runtime, written by Tobias Schneider, which enables the browser to play and display Flash files. A runtime is a collection of software that allows the running of code inside it. A helpful analogy is a software emulator for a games console. These enable you to play the original code of, say, Super Mario World, but inside an application that runs on your PC. It's also how games such as Sonic The Hedgehog are able to run on your iPhone.
