Download NimbleKit and try it for free. You'll need an Intel Mac, Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later, iOS SDK 4.2 (or newer), and 15 Mb free space on your Hard Drive. The free download gives you access to all of NimbleKits features and you can build and test your apps on the iOS simulator.
Please don't PM me questions, ask here in the forums!

This is very interesting. I don't normally go for this kind of thing because you can only write games that use the basic point & click features of AM, but the iPad and other devices are so popular that it might be worth a shot.

Thanks for sharing!

Well, it's just one of the many. There's PhoneGap for example, and it's free.

Just remember in both cases you need a developer certificate in order to get stuff into App store, and that'll cost you a bit.

For adventure games, a cheaper (easier, quicker, more dark side...) way of deployment would be to release them as web apps with offline capability. The only thing which currently sucks with those is the sound support.

Hopefully GM will make html5 output to his engine some time soon. That would make drag and drop possible on a browser, for example. I haven't seen a game engine optimized for making adventure games outputting html5 - yet. It's bound to happen sooner or later.
