  • Flash on iPhone. Its coming.


    You wanted it. Apple said it wasn't good enough. Adobe said, pshaw, we'll do it ourselves if you don't want to do it with us.

    "We believe Flash is synonymous with the Internet experience, and we are committed to bringing Flash to the iPhone," said Adobe Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen. "We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves."

    WSJ

    UPDATE: Engadget's got a bit saying that Adobe is backing out of their claims already - the CEO is now saying he didn't realize they'd need to work "beyond and above what is available through the SDK." Nice job, Shantanu.

      And I bet this move will make iPhone sales go up because I bet a lot people said not to buy the iPhone because of the lack of flash (people don't buy things for the most weird reasons).

      I sure hope this comes to the iPod Touch as well, I will not sit and watch the iPhone get all the glory lol. I think I might surrender and get me one (near future). Anyway, this is wonderful news, finally get applications & things working

      C'mon guys, if you're going to explain something, explain it right.

      The Konami Code wasn't just for Contra.

      I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen.. If Apple was open to Adobe developing a better flash player for iphone, then why did Apple go out of their way to say that the current flash mobile is trash?

      wait, someone enlighten me on this...

      are they actually gonna use the SDK that was released to the public to make this flash support? Or are they doing it another way, aka their own way?

      i wonder how much they are gonna make us pay for it and if apple will allow them to put it in the app store
      hmmmm its gotta be free
      besides its as if they were advertisin themselves with that product, so why would we have to pay... Do we pay for the flash plug in on our computers? no! so take it from there.

      im not really looking forward to upgrading and jailbreaking 2.0...even more i seriously hate what apples trying to do with sdk so i hope that someone will make the flash plugin either as its original form - a stand-alone app - or better yet just a plugin availiable in the installer .app for the lower versions (id rather it be availiable to lower versions too than just 2.0)

      Thanks
