Adobe Tosses in Flash Towel After Apple Limits iPhone Dev

Responding to Apple’s ban which prevents iPhone developers from using Flash, Adobe has given up efforts to enable Flash on Apple devices. “We will still be shipping the ability to target the iPhone and iPad in Flash CS5,” Adobe’s Mike Chambers, wrote in a blog. “However, we are not currently planning any additional investments in that feature.”

Instead, Adobe will turn its attention to the Android platform and has begun working closely with Google in those efforts.

Chambers concluded, “I think that the closed system that Apple is trying to create is bad for the industry, developers and ultimately consumers. We are at the beginning of a significant change in the industry, and I believe that ultimately open platforms will win out over the type of closed, locked-down platform that Apple is trying to create.”
