ADOBE TO KILL OFF FLASH

Posted: November 11th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on ADOBE TO KILL OFF FLASH

Adobe is set to ‘Flash’ as an App Builder and Embraces HTML5, the Flash Mobile Killer . . . you can’t play Flash content on an iPhone or iPad?! Well, you can cross that argument off the mobile decision list. As we predicted back in early October: Adobe Kills Flash.  According to a scoop last night on ZDNet, Adobe has announced that they are stopping development on Flash Player for mobile browsers. ”Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations.” Adobe is, in fact, finally heeding Steve Jobs’ advice. In a public letter – below – about Flash last year, Jobs said, “Even if iPhones, iPods and iPads ran Flash, it would not solve the problem that most Flash websites need to be rewritten to support touch-based devices. New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind” M★S  READ MORE
