Adobe Flash Unfit for iPhone

One thing is inherently missing with the iPhone and the iPad when visiting multimedia sites. There are blank screens where videos or animated content are normally displayed. The problem with the iPhone and iPad is it does not support Adobe Flash. Steve Jobs recently was quoted saying Adobe Flash is unfit for the iPhone.

He says it has too many bugs, drains batteries too quickly and is too oriented to personal computers to work on the iPhone and iPad. Jobs cited reliability, security and performance” are the reasons Apple will continue to keep the Adobe Flash off its devices.

Meanwhile, a Google vice president has confirmed that full support for Flash is coming in the next version of Android. Whatever is happening behind the scenes between Apple and Adobe, Google is going to benefit. Android is well positioned to take advantage of the gaping hole Apple has left with Adobe Flash unsupported.

  1. Looks like Apple just made an informal proposal to Adobe….You want Apple to include you in our products, give me a piece of the pie. This really defines the meaning of nothing’s free in the world. Apple’s got a great strategy and hats off to Steve Jobs.

    1. I think the technical issues is just a smokescreen. I don’t blame Apple if it wants a piece of the pie, but Apple makes enough money in my opinion, it doesn’t need extra revenue from Adobe. Meanwhile, the iPhone and iPad users are missing out without Flash support.
