Adobe: no Flash Player for Jelly Bean, Google Play gate closes August 15

Adobe: no Flash Player for Jelly Bean, Google Play gate closes August 15It’s probably fair to say the Android community is quite excited about Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), with all its new features and that (more on those, shortly!).

But one chap who won’t be coming to the Jelly Bean party is Johnny Adobe. There’s officially no Flash support for Android 4.1, and Flash Player will disappear from Google Play on August 15.

On the plus side, Adobe will use configuration settings in Google Play to allow those who already have Flash Player installed to download updates, however new installs are a no-no.

In the case that your Flash-loving device is upgraded to Jelly Bean, Adobe warns: “the current version of Flash Player may exhibit unpredictable behavior, as it is not certified for use with Android 4.1.”

Indeed, Adobe recommends that you go ahead and uninstall Flash Player altogether, should Jelly Bean come your way.

As I understand it, Jelly Bean devices released prior to Aug 15th, WILL get continued support!

But, boohoo... I find Flash in the Android stock browser not all that impressive. Even on the One X and Galaxy Note it's not exactly smooth sailing
