Not that I know of.

And if you want to be serious about iphone development, then you should just spend the time learning objective c.

No, you can't program iPhone applications in straight C/C++, however if you are willing to mutilate the languages you can use portions of them in your program (they aren't allowed to do anything useful, like build the UI for you, but you can concievably make data structures or algorithms in them and use that in the Objective-C program).

If you look in the "other language" tutorials section I have posted one, and have another pending, for iPhone development and introduction to Objective-C.

Also, you are required (at this time) to have a Mac... though when Flash CS5 is released they are going to allow for users to compile specially made flas into iPhone applications (and I mean compile, it won't be a SWF, or AIR application in any way - pure assembly from what I can tell)...

Betawar, in the words of the inimitable Ace Ventura...

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally?

Flash CS5 is getting more interesting by the day. And I though CS4 had everything i'd ever need..

BetaWar is correct about Objective C. Best explanation I have seen on the subject.

I would love to see flash on iPhone. Are you sure? Everyone always talks about it and time just goes on by with never a mention of flash. This is definitely worth a look into CS5. I was glad when C4D was released and compatible with iPhone. Expensive, but much easier to get 3D to iPhone than blender.

There's also Monotouch that allows you to use C#, but it ain't free.
