Flash playing on iPhone emulator!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008   

Speaking during its fiscal second quarter conference call, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen revealed that the company has a version of its Flash Player running inside the iPhone Emulator.

In response to a question about possible Flash support on the iPhone 3G, Narayen said, “With respect to the iPhone, we are working on it. 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.”

Following the release of the iPhone Software Development Kit, Adobe stated its intent to bring the Flash Player to the iPhone, noting that integrating the software with the Safari browser would require “work with Apple beyond and above what is available through the SDK and the current license around it.”

“Great news.

I find it funny, however, that everyone is claiming Apple is blocking Flash on the iPhone because they have released a "Flash killer" in their JavaScript library. I'm sure Apple sees the value of having a full browsing experience on their device, which includes both advanced JavaScript and Flash support.

Not to mention that if Adobe has it working in an emulator, they are obviously working with Apple already...”
