  • 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.

      Well, for the people who want to play online flash games on the iPhone or iPod, how can you do it since you don't have a keyboard? Ha!

      Is there any media player to play .AVI files yet??, it would be great if there was because I hate having to keep on converting them all the time.

      Thanks.

      No, but there is a converter in the "App Launches" forum.

      So guess it sound like what I said earlier. Some form of flash could be possible as a separate media player. However, a full browser plug-in is off limits for now.
