Mobile Browser Flash Development Stopped by Adobe

Adobe is stopping development of Flash for mobile devices. Instead, it will focus its efforts on HTML5.

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.

As well as being headed towards HTML5 in general, Adobe will look at creating applications for mobile.

A full announcement by Adobe is expected later on today which will explain the ins and outs of what’s happening within the company and what its future plans are.
