    Now my IPhone friends will be able to do things I have been doing for years on my Android. :-)

    A video about iOS and I can't watch it on my iPad because it needs Adobe flash!!

  • Isn't Flash dead for Mobile Devices?

    Why still create new content with it? Use html5.
    Flash is slow, jerky, has bad buffering, difficult to stop, rewind, replay from half way etc. Time to retire it. Better and more universal, less resource intensive systems are already in common use.

    • not that good

      I've looked at HTML5 and unless browsers get better at the controls it's going to go nowhere fast. every browser I tried did not have the ability to go full screen. Hopefully that gets corrected soon.
