Iphone loves the flash player!

with 2 comments

Adobe made comments today that they will be delivering a Flash client for the iPhone. According to Adobe’s Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen, Adobe has downloaded the iPhone SDK and is planning on building a Flash Player for the iPhone and distributing it via Apple’s iTunes App store.


We believe Flash is synonymous with the Internet experience, and we are committed to bringing Flash to the iPhone,” Narayen said. “We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves.”

The news comes a few weeks after Apple’s Steve Jobs explained his reasons why Flash is not available for the iPhone. Jobs claimed that Flash Lite for mobile was not full featured enough, while the full version of Flash would not run well on the iPhone.

I personally believe this is (finally) a good thing. When I was in Amsterdam I noticed lot’s of iphone users who were dissapointed they could not run the mobile guide. Let’s hope they fix it soon!
