Los Angeles
– Apple (NASD: AAPL) is developing an alternative to Adobe’s (NASD: ADBE) Flash, which it banned
developers from using on its iPhone and iPad products, Apple Insider reported.

The Gianduia technology, described as a client-side, standards-based framework for rich Internet apps, was first introduced at Apple’s World of WebObjects
Developer Conference last year.

Gianduia has reportedly been in use at Apple’s
own retail stores — in the form of the One to One program, iPhone reservation
system, and Concierge service for Genius Bar reservations.

Apple recently
modified the terms of its developer agreement for the iPhone, banning the use
of third-party development platforms like Adobe’s Flash.
