During Adobe’s Q2 earnings call Monday, chief Shantanu Narayen said that Adobe had tackled some of the technical challenges to getting Flash to work on the iPhone:
We have a version that’s working on the emulation. This is still on the computer and you know, we have to continue to move it from a test environment onto the device and continue to make it work. So we are pleased with the internal progress that we’ve made to date.
Sounds good, but Steve Jobs already expressed his disapproval of Flash on the iPhone. Apparently their mobile version of flash isn’t good enough, and the desktop version is too slow. There’s been no word from Apple yet if they would allow Adobe to make a browser plugin, or if it would be a standalone app. I’d love to see flash on the iPhone. YouTube is great, but there are a lot more videos available elsewhere on the web.
