Flash on The iPhone. It's NOT coming. Well at least not from Adobe by themselves.
So Adobe is backpedaling from their previous statement regarding the development of flash on the iPhone by Adobe. It now appears that Adobe will not be able to develop the iPhone flash themselves as they previously claimed. If flash is coming to the iPhone Adobe is going to need the help of Apple.
If you remember a couple days ago
Adobe announced that "We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves."
Turns out they spoke too soon. Adobe has come out with a follow up stating:
“However, to bring the full capabilities of Flash to the iPhone Web-browsing experience, we do need to work with Apple beyond and above what is available through the SDK and the current license around it,” the company said.
“We think Flash availability on the iPhone benefits Apple and Adobe’s millions of joint customers, so we want to work with Apple to bring these capabilities to the device.”
Way to go Adobe. Look before you leap next time. Hopefully Apple works with you to bring flash to the iPhone, even though Steve says
your current mobile flash isn't good enough.
