Apple Going Flash Free: No Flash On iPad\iPhone\iPodTouch
Apple has been adamant about not supporting Flash on the iPad along with the iPhone and iPodTouch devices. As we all know that so far whatever Apple want they get it, and right now their focus is to have developers crank out boatloads of websites, mobile applications, and digital content that is flash-free for their upcoming idevice Ã¢â‚¬â€œ iPad.
Despite the consistent bashing from critics, Apple is successfully changing the way many websites would have otherwise functioned with Flash for the sake of capturing a chunk of the tablet’s presumably large forthcoming audience.
Today, the we learned that both National Public Radio and The Wall Street Journal are also in process of changing large chunks of their Flash content and, are now working on iPad-specific versions of their websites.
As we recently heard, a growing number of companies – not even those confined to the publishing or broadcasting industries – are changing how they do business in order to accommodate how Apple is doing business. Virgin America recently converted their website to support iPhone users by removing all Flash content that would have prevented travelers from checking their flight status on the popular Apple smartphone.
While itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s early to say if Apple’s approach to not support Flash will do any damage to Adobe. Though, it seems that if Apple goes without Flash on their idevices others will follow.
