Flash inside an app

  • Hey, per OSX app-store regulations would an app be approved if it loads a flash player inside a uiwebview but does not show that view, instead expanding on the callbacks from it and creating a new experience and adding new functionality to that service!?
    I know Shiny Groove does something similar for the Grooveshark service, is it ok?

    Thanks,
    Alexandru

    I can’t think of any reason that wouldn’t be OK by Apple. What are you worried about?

    On the other hand, I think it’s likely that the 3rd party service would be unhappy and try to block or break your app, either by keeping it from logging in or by changing the internal APIs incompatibly.

    How do you propose to achieve this?

    Never mind. You clearly did not mean UIWebView, since you're asking
    about the OS X app store.

    UIWebView == iOS, WebView == Mac.

  • Sorry I meant WebView not it's iOS counterpart.
    As for how I can achieve this? Some services offer players that enable you to control them through Javascript. Loading them in a web view you can call javascript which in turn call you back through the web view delegate - i simplified the process a bit here, but it can be done.
    For example, Grooveshark has an apiplayer that you can control with javascript after embedding it. You can find it in the developers section of their website.
