      >> How can we save files on mobile devices like IOS, do we have a database, can we save a file in form of xml or text. Can we keep the file in memory? How to figure out total space available on the dics?

      >> How can we get the remote data, can we make the remoting calls like AMF php or zend amf using RemoteObject or NetConnection classes?

      >> We have created some nice animations using flash, how can we use it in IOS application developed by Flash builder?

      >> Can we use bluethooth functionalities?

      >> Can we load the swfs in ios if yes then how (Using swfloader or somethign else)?

       

      >> Any other information, we should know before start the development, We need to developer a application of games (with in app buy option) [For IOS, Androids and blackberry]

          There is an SQLite DB you can use, or you can save text/binary (ByteArray) files in the application directory.

           

          >> How can we get the remote data, can we make the remoting calls like AMF php or zend amf using RemoteObject or NetConnection classes?

          The same way as a standard app. All of the remoting functionality works the same.

           

          >> We have created some nice animations using flash, how can we use it in IOS application developed by Flash builder?

          Create them as library symbols, then import the symbol as a class to use in your Flex app.

           

          >> Can we use bluethooth functionalities?

          To my knowledge, no. I believe you would need to create a native extension for each target platform.

           

          >> Can we load the swfs in ios if yes then how (Using swfloader or somethign else)?

          This would violate Apple's TOS, but it works just fine on Android.

           

          >> Any other information, we should know before start the development, We need to developer a application of games (with in app buy option) [For IOS, Androids and blackberry]

          Make sure you thoroughly understand the Apple developer license, Human Interface Guidlines, and other such nonsense they put you through.
