Briefly: Adobe Planning Flash for The iPhone
During a conference call taking place yesterday, Adobe’s Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen said that Adobe has plans to bring Flash to the iPhone. According to Narayen, Adobe has downloaded the SDK and has plans to create a Flash player for the iPhone and distribute it via the iPhone App Store. “We believe Flash is synonymous with the Internet experience, and we are committed to bringing Flash to the iPhone,” said Narayen, adding that “We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves.”
Current restrictions in the iPhone’s SDK could prevent Adobe from implementing flash on the device. However, Apple may grant Adobe special permission to bring the long-awaited feature to the iPhone.
