Adobe Drops Flash for iPhone

ZD Net reported that Adobe has explicitly cited Apple’s refusal to include Flash support in its iPhone and iPad browsers as a reason for the technology’s demise.

In a blog post on Friday, Adobe Flash developer relations chief Mike Chambers said Apple’s intransigence on the matter has reduced Flash’s chances of becoming a widespread platform for in-browser mobile apps. Another major factor was the rise of HTML5, he noted, on which Adobe is now placing a stronger focus.

“Given the fragmentation of the mobile market, and the fact that one of the leading mobile platforms (Apple’s iOS) was not going to allow the Flash Player in the browser, the Flash Player was not on track to reach anywhere near the ubiquity of the Flash Player on desktops,” Chambers said.
