    You cannot download scripts to run in your app. Any interpreted script that comes from outside the device is off limits.
    If I understand it right, it disallows emulators, browsers, PHP/Python and such for server software.

    Besides, Adobe made it possible to convert your Flash application into a native application that runs on iP*s, but Apple kicked those applications out. Therefore, the first rule doesn't mean anything. Another thing that shows you can't really trust anything Apple says. They'll reverse all rules if they feel like doing so.
