As any Xcelsius dashboards is in essence a Adobe component and also is enabled to be distributed as an AIR application. Using Adobe AIR® Packager for iPhone you can turn an Xcelsius dashboard into a Apple application (ipa).

Keep in mind that Adobe AIR® Packager for iPhone will do a full conversion of a given Adobe application, and you may face some performance issues with too much complex dashboards.

Step 1 – Create or Use an existing Xcelsius dashboard

Step 2 – Export it to Adobe Flash

Step 3 – Create a XML application descriptor* to this Xcelsius dashboard

Step 4 – Compile the IPA file

Please make sure that your application description follow the form demanded for IPA. See that for AIR application the XML structure is different.

    Hi Miquel,

    Thanks for the Adobe AIR Packager for iPhone tip! But, to install these .ipa’s you need an iPhone with Jailbreak, right?

    Cheers,
    Xavier

      Hi Xavier,

      Yes. But there are more information explaining how to upload a converted application into to Apple Store. Please check the Packager for iPhone Developer’s Guide.

      Additionally you can upload this IPA to a iPad.

      Cheers, Miguel

        I only see the following text on the Adobe Package for iPhone site:

        “As a result of Apple’s updated legal terms (section 3.3.1 of the Apple iPhone SDK License Agreement), Apple is no longer permitting these applications to be delivered to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users through the Apple App Store.”

    First of all I just wanted to say this is a great blog Miguel.  Clarification: So in order for one to undertake the methods that you prescribed, a jailbreak iPhone is NOT needed to “upload a converted application”, Xcelsius, into the Apple Store?
