iPhone animation -- how's it done?

Hey, I'm just looking for a general overview: how are developers handling animation on the iPhone?

I have an app that is animation/sound heavy, and I'd love to develop it in something cross-platform (read: Flash). However, since I don't think there's an animation kit that works across Windows, Mac and the iPhone I figure I'm going to need to do an iPhone-specific version.

I've seen some stuff on the CSS animation that Safari's webkit supports but that's too limited for what I'm after. I'm trying to figure out the "big picture" for animation on the iPhone. Are there libraries out there people are using? Does the iPhone have a nice animation/sprite toolkit built into the OS? etc.

Just some links and a general overview of the various option(s) would be great. Thanks.

Visiting the link I provided to the iPhone development section and SDK is not the same as finding it on your own. Yes, it was a simple answer, but it was the only correct one in comparison to the other options you provided (flash which doesn't exist on iPhones officially and CSS which was not a solution). Please accept and PAQ this question as is appropriate rather than try to delete it.

You're right, there's some points valid for that, but I feel like a bunch of my question wasn't addressed ("just some links and a general overview of the various option(s) would be great")... I'll assign some points.
