Adobe developing Flash Player for iPhone

October 1, 2008 - 2 Responses

Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe has already stated this publicly. But the news seem to get a ton of buzz with the announcements made at Flash On The Beach conference. If Apple approves Adobe’s Flash-Player-for-iPhone efforts, iPhone could go Flash enabled pretty soon.

Flashmagazine reports quoting Paul Betlem( Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe) :

“The Adobe team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it’s a closed platform. He noted that Apple makes all the decisions.”

The new player will be the “missing product in the middle” between Flash Player and Flash Lite.According to AppleInsider, Adobe is planning to distribute the new player through Apple’s App store.

Geoff Kaman?Seriously?

Stating a “reliable source”, Gearlive claims that “Flash support is on its way to the iPhone, and it should be coming very, very soon”.
If this is true, it will be interesting to see how Adobe plans to deal with iPhone’s multitouch feature.Perhaps new actionscript events and an update for CS3?

Youtube Mobile launched

Youtube seem to have officially launched the mobile version at m.youtube.com.At the moment ,this is not a full blown feature perfect version( doesn’t have profile specific features yet).

The site was first sighted during February 07 [test mode,entitled Youtube ToGo].

The interface is sleek and video streams as 3gp over rtsp. Must be an easy hack to create a Flashlite frontend with a little bit of scrapping.

video.play anyone?
