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.
