Flash for mobile discontinued



  • Adobe: "Flash to Focus on PC Browsing and Mobile Apps; Adobe to More Aggressively Contribute to HTML5

    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 continue to develop Flash Player in the browser to work with new mobile device configurations (chipset, browser, OS version, etc.) following the upcoming release of Flash Player 11.1 for Android and BlackBerry PlayBook.

    We are already working on Flash Player 12 and a new round of exciting features which we expect to again advance what is possible for delivering high definition entertainment experiences. We will continue to leverage our experience with Flash to accelerate our work with the W3C and WebKit to bring similar capabilities to HTML5 as quickly as possible, just as we have done with CSS Shaders. And, we will design new features in Flash for a smooth transition to HTML5 as the standards evolve so developers can confidently invest knowing their skills will continue to be leveraged." read the full announcement

    Adobe’s announcement yesterday that it’s discontinuing development of its Flash platform for mobile devices has fueled speculation that the future of mobile applications resides in the browser, not on specific platforms. (techrepublic)
