In conclusion, I am grateful that Adobe makes tools that let me easier make Flash user interfaces (such as Flash Catalyst) and export Flash to the iPhone and Android with relative little programming effort. In fact, I feel a bit sorry that while people can make my life as a designer easier by getting me easy-to-use tools, it is a lot harder to make tools that can make visually appealing things more intuitive.
