    , and
  • 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."


    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.

      awesome. this is great news. any word on a eta?

      also: I'm sure the plugin will be free and the pro version will cost money, just as it is on comps.

      So looks like a standalone flash player. I wonder how it'll work... sort of like how the youtube app works? Finds a youtube link and opens it on the app. So this would search for .flv files and open them in the player? I can't imagine this running within Safari.

      Either way, about time!

      I for one, will believe it when I see it :-)

      We will probably have to wait till FW 1.2.0 (AKA 2.0 ) to come out so we can DL it from the apple 'Installer' ripoff thing.

      Happy, I think it will run within safari.. Safari mobile does allow Plugins, most of the sites that have flash would be meaningless if you just viewed the flash aspect of the site. If its just a flash player, then I for one dont want it lol.
