Iphone hates the Flash player ( a series of complex iphone issues )
Yesterday I was proud to announce that the iphone would finally support the flash player. This seemed like some good news but after only 1 day it has turned into the same old frustrating illusion that it was before. Iphone and the flash player are a no go apparently. First Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen announced that they were working on Flash for the iPhone, now Adobe clarifies that no, they’re actually not. Personally I think they are messing with all the people who want a decent internet experience on their iphone. And for developers like me it is also a pain in the ass that we can’t reach the large number of iphone users. If apple would like to present the iphone as ”the smartphone” then my guess is that not implementing the flash player is not that smart.
Even though 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 think not providing a flash player is even less featured!
Just like aral I’m shutting my ears now!
