Apple and Adobe Cooperating on Flash Player for iPhone

Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen announced last week that Adobe and Apple are working together on bringing Flash to the iPhone.

For a long time Adobe and Apple couldn’t reach mutual understanding on this point. Because Apple had several good reasons to prevent Flash on the iPhone. First, it would break their consistent UI experience. Second, it could pose a threat to the iTunes distribution model and the low specs of the phone itself. The decision of Apple CEO Steve Jobs was primarily based on the fact that Flash Lite, an earlier developed engine for mobile and electronics devices, wasn’t good enough and worked too slow on the iPhone.

But Adobe continued industriously working on a custom version of the Flash Player and its improvement. This player has never been released to the public. Shantanu says “It’s a hard technical challenge, and that’s part of the reason Apple and Adobe are collaborating. The ball is in our court. The onus is on us to deliver.”

But as we see, all negotiations have finished successfully. And Steve Jobs granted his approval to develop a Flash player and get it onto their products.

So, we are remained only to hope that a new Flash Player for Apple’s popular device will appear this year.
