Adobe AIR

Adobe Giving up on Mobile Flash, going HTML5

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

Woke up to read that Adobe said it’s stopping development on mobile Flash, and refocusing on HTML5.

It’s bittersweet for me.

A quote from Adobe:

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.

I’ve had a long history with Flash, and am sad to see it go, but happy we’re moving in a good direction (even if just for mobile, because we all know this means HTML5 will be the overall direction of Flash).
