Adobe Blames Apple For Lack Of Flash On iPhone
Previously, when you visited the Flash plug-in download page from the iPhone, you would see a message that informed you no version was available for the platform you were using. Now, the page reads:
Apple restricts use of technologies required by products like Flash Player. Until Apple eliminates these restrictions, Adobe cannot provide Flash Player for the iPhone or iPod touch.Adobe is likely trying to get users fired up about Apple's policies in hopes they will push Apple into making changes. Whether or not Apple will listen and respond to fired-up customers is another story.
Last month, Adobe did announce that the forthcoming Flash CS5 Professional would allow developers to write applications in Flash that can be compiled to run on the iPhone. Whether Apple will respond to this is anyone's guess, though there's always the chance Apple is assuming users will be less than impressed by the offerings from Flash programmers.
