Adobe CEO: ‘There’s a War Happening for Developers’

At the Web 2.0 Summit, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen called attention to the ongoing battle between Adobe and Apple. “There’s a war happening for developers; there’s a war to try to get the best applications for a particular platform and to keep that lead,” he said.


“Adobe’s always been about helping people create content for multiple different devices and multiple platforms and bringing the power of that rich media, so I think Apple and Adobe are on different sides of this struggle for control,” Narayen added. In contrast, “Apple would like to create a closed and proprietary system, for developers to make applications that only work on ‘i’ devices, and continue to just operate on ‘i’ devices.”
