Flash on iPhone is just around the corner

iPhone Flash pluginEDIT: The Skyfire browser for iPhone allows you to view Flash video directly on your iPhone.

EDIT: Here are the details on Apple and Adobe collaborating on an iPhone Flash player.

EDIT: Here is an update on the whole Flash on iPhone situation.

We’ve been waiting for Flash support to hit the ever since…well…it launched. We’ve had to make do without Flash for almost eight months, and YouTube even had to convert a bunch of their catalog to H.264 in order for the service to be enjoyed on the iPhone. Well, we’ve just got word from a reliable source that Flash support is on its way to the iPhone, and it should be coming very, very soon. Speculating a bit further on our own, we are guessing that it would be pretty convenient for Flash support to be introduced alongside the iPhone SDK, wouldn’t you say? Now, we know that there isn’t much information here, but you also know how strong our sources are too - Flash on the iPhone is coming, just take our word for it, okay?

EDIT: We already have had a couple people ask about the supposed battery and CPU issues that were holding Flash back from being included on the iPhone in the first place. From what I am hearing, it was a complete fabrication. Flash has not yet made it to the iPhone solely due to business negotiations. As we said, it is now on its way!

Alex,

Good read…and it makes sense. Unfortunately, the only comment that I have is that I gave you the information that I got from our sources. They’ve come through for us in the past, but quite honestly, we never know until we get our hands on it. wink

I think that GL’s “source” has proven them selves in the past with the 1.1.3 leak and I am really hopping this is the same story.

It would open up a lot of options for sure

Is this set to debut at the end of Febuary with the SDK?

@seanonymous - Yes, 1.1.4 is out, but the SDK isn’t. Of course, the whole “Flash alongside SDK” thing is my own prediction, and not anything that came from a source. I am still holding out for that. We’ll see.

I hope you’re right about flash being around the corner. The reality is that everybody has invested so much of their time and money on flash/actionscript development that we will be extremely unhappy if we can’t use our existing skills and existing hard work on this new important platform.  It’s not just about flashy intros and adverts, there’s been tons of recent development in very cool and very useful flash apps.

look all of you people knew everything about the iphone ( flaws n advantages) before it even came out n we (even me) went out n bought it so now we gotta suck it up n deal with it don’t like it then get an ordinary phone!!!

I got this web page from my pal who shared with me on the topic
of this web page and now this time I am visiting this website and reading very informative content at this time.
