Apple seems to be looking to widen the appeal of its iAd advertising platform as the fruity company has rolled out the iAd Producer, a free desktop application that allows third-parties to make iAds. The application is designed to make it easy for users to design and assemble high-impact, interactive content for iAd and automatically manages the HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript behind iAds. It’s a nice move, especially since Apple previously charged a princely amount to companies like Nissan and Disney to use the platform. Will iAd become as lucrative a scene as the company’s App Store?
