Adobe developing Flash Player for iPhone
October 1, 2008

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.

Flash on iPhone?
February 12, 2008

Geoff Kaman
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?

Via [Ryan, JD ]
Totally exciting announcement from Adobe.. Flashlite 3 will have native flv support! [as of now Flash lite supports only device videos].
This essentially means that everything flashlity on the mobile will support flv[mashups,wallpapers, name it!].And yes! Its does support streaming video.

Flashlite 3 is expected to be released by mid 2007.


update:The  story is on Techmeme.

Apollo will be mobile-aware!
January 31, 2007

In an intervew with IDG network ,President and COO of Adobe , Shantanu Narayen says Adobe’s soon to be released cross-platform runtime Apollo, will be mobile aware.

Although details on what that exactly means is not available, sounds like it has something to do with author once run everywhere concept , which translates to less headache for developer.

Its a fact that Adobe is generating some cash though Flashcast service on NTTDOCOMO.[Everytime user request content, Adobe gets paid].Its not clear if the “mobile awareness” of Apollo has something to do with Flashlite or Flashcast.

Flashlite hit news headline
October 25, 2006

Yes fellow people! Lots of positive press pouring in for Flash and Flashlite  in investor/business community, with Verizon’s decision to Go Flash.Latest is the article in

The news was originally blogged by Alessandro, referring to  an Adobe press release.

Forbes article give special mention  to “over-the-air” upgrade feature,which is pretty cool BTW!

Overall, October looks like a great month for Adobe. With Google’s acquisition of Youtube, business/investor community  is already swarmed with Adobe buzz words all around them!For developer,all this great press coverage targeting business community, translates to a potential decrease in “Oh ! i heard its annoying” response from clients.

And the most coolest of it all, Adobe’s plans to invest around $100,000,000 in Apollo based innovations.
