Can flash apps work on iphone, ipad, ios devices?

Can animation be created using XCODE on IOS (like how jquery is applied and behave in websites) ? Are they similar in creating an interactive application?
The problem is, my boss keeps on hiring flash developers to do a game app for IOS platforms, but i’m not sure if they will be effective because of the said issue. Should they pursue or just make them go study xcode to do the job? @paulie_d, @unasAquila# May 15, 2013 at 11:17 am

Time to educate your boss then.
That’s not to say that a competent developer can’t develop in Flash and then transcode to iOS.
Frankly this is waaaay outside of my experience but if I were the project manager I would be hiring IOS games developers and not flash developers and getting their input.# May 26, 2013 at 3:05 pm
Uneducated people is what ruins this industry.
Flash has always been able to publish to iOS – the exact same code that goes on a web page can be packaged to iOS and Android.
Some of the biggest games sold on iTunes were built using Flash.
Flash + Gaming
Flash animation can export as HTML5, JS and CSS. Flash is the most widely used application for developing HTML5 animations.
Flash coded games, etc export to Google Dart, which will run natively on any platform, device without plug-ins.

Air is not limited to Flash it can be done in `html, CSS & JS` which is best since [Adobe flash for Mobile](http://www.zdnet.com/blog/perlow/exclusive-adobe-ceases-development-on-mobile-browser-flash-refocuses-efforts-on-html5-updated/19226) is discontinued.# May 28, 2013 at 1:56 pm
Why are people so ignorant. Flash for mobile is not discontinued, the Flash Player for mobile is discontinued. Maybe it is that people are just illiterate. Their are many alternative ways to publish Flash content to web or mobile (html/js, java, Google Dart or Adobe AIR).# May 28, 2013 at 3:19 pm
Well Adobe would beg to differ with you.
Also **Air is not Flash**, **Dart is not Flash** , **Html/JS is not flash** , **Java is not flash** .
Not sure if you noticed the theme there, basically nothing you mentioned is flash.
If you are going to develop for Mobile or even the web and all you are doing is converting a Flash project to another Language then you may as well learn the language you are going to use.# June 7, 2013 at 1:55 pm
