Flash on the iPhone - The Ongoing Saga

 

 

The ever present specter of Flash on the iPhone has once again, reared its head. Adobe CEO, Shantanu Narayen, stated during Adobe's Q2 earnings call that the company has Flash running on the iPhone within emulation:

 

"We have a version that’s working on the emulation. This is still on the computer and you know, we have to continue to move it from a test environment onto the device and continue to make it work. So we are pleased with the internal progress that we’ve made to date."

 

If Apple allows Flash on the iPhone, this would introduce a feature many iPhone users have been clamoring for.

 

Just don't hold your breath. Steve Jobs has been critical of Flash Mobile, suggesting that it isn't powerful enough for the iPhone.

 

Hopefully, the two companies will iron out their differences and give customers the option to install Flash on their iPhones.

Make it an optional install via the App Store for iPhone users to install the Flash Player plug-in for Safari. That way if there's any performance issues noticed the user can simply uninstall the plug-in.

Hey,

the two companies will iron out their differences out and give customers the option to install Flash on their iPhones.

To many outs in that sentence.

I hate to be a nitpicker, but there aren't enough "o"s in your "To".
