Adobe kills flash for Mobile

Adobe kills flash for Mobile

We have a feeling that this might only affect Android users who are currently used to using flash on their phones. As for the rest of the world, we all shrugged when Adobe officially announced they were stopping all development on flash for mobile devices, and since technically speaking Android is the only platform that currently use Flash on mobile devices, this is a big  blow for them. So what does that traslate to – Flash Player for mobile devices is officially dead.

Adobe is reaffirming its commitment to “aggressively contribute” to HTML5, a platform with broader support and capabilities than Flash was ever able to deliver, which we will have to agree on since more platforms will be focusing their energies on HTML5 in the near future (if they are not doing so already). Either way, Flash was always a resource heavy than the more streamlines HTML5, and while not as pretty as Flash, HTML5 should be fine for the future especially with the biggest threat gone.

Still Flash will continue to work on Flash for computers and non mobile devices, so don’t press the panic button just yet because it’s just the mobile section that’s dead.
