  • Adobe Working on Flash -- Still?!

    Adobe has once again announced that they are working on Flash for the iPhone. In the past they have gone back and forth between we are doing it and we can't do it etc. so who knows if they are serious or not this time around.

    At this years On the Beach conference during the Town Hall meeting sessions Paul Betlem, Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe Systems, answered a direct question by the audience concerning Flash on the iPhone.

    His response was some along the lines of "My team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it's a closed platform." Hopefully they are really working on this and plan to go back to Apple for approval of whatever they come up with sometime soon.

    True, flash is bloated and can be very annoying, but sometimes it's used in an effective manner. Here's to still waiting . . .

      Adobe "IS" flash. They had flash before the iPhone, they had it FOR the iPhone. Apple shut them down the first time they tried to release it. Now Adobe is waiting for Apple to tell them when they can release THEIR program. It's absolutely ludicrous.

      i doubt it, but maybe apple is just stubborn

      if this happened im sure the app store would lose a small amount of business in the gaming section,

      I just paid $25 for Jaadu VNC just so I could read Marvel Digital Comics in Flash. I'm a big believer in Murphy's Law, so I figure this'll be out any day now.

      @Cash, yes I did click the links...
      @mbabarvard, that is strange QuickTime works for me on my phone. I guess you just can't run apple ads using QuickTime on an iPhone for some reason.

      QuickTime definitely works on the iPhone but flash would also be sweet.

      Yehhh. Adobe? Why took them so long. And nothing. Is there a guy or woman they can program flash to play on iphone?

      They will pay for that.

      I still get the same thing on the iPhone and I still find it quite odd!
      It doesn't matter which format you try - none of them work...

      The iPhone doesn't support the Apple Ad's format. It won't work.

      If MMS and Flash require a hardware update this will be my one and only iPhone. Does that copy/paste program work globally?
