Why is Apple stalling Flash on the iPhone?

  • Well, those who want Flash on their iPhone don’t want it for website that are fully written in Flash, or that feature Flash intros. it’s more about integration - being able to directly visit a website with a Flash embed, and playing that embed, etc. There are some legitimate, non-annoying uses! 😉

  • I doubt the iPhones hardware could support flash, and if it could the quality wouldn’t be that great.  Even on Windows flash is a little buggy and takes some time to load, just imagine how it would be on a mobile device like the iPhone.  If it was successfully added though it would open a whole lot more capabilities for the iPhone.  A lot of web based applications are flash based.
