No. Clucking. Way. Hell has frozen over, and pigs are soaring through the air. Flash support for iOS is finally here. Sort of. Don’t get too excited just yet.
Apple has taken a lot of stick in recent years for the lack of Flash support on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Steve Jobs hates Flash, and that’s the end of the story as far as Apple is concerned.
Adobe, on the other hand, has been busy beavering away on a potential solution. It’s come up with Adobe Wallaby, an “experimental technology” that converts Flash files to HTML format.
Presumably the app is so-called as it takes a huge leap over Apple’s obstinacy. Steve Jobs will no doubt be crushing many a paper cup at the news.
There’s still a lot of work to be done on Adobe Wallaby. At the moment it only converts Flash-based adverts, so you won’t be able to check out other Flash content just yet.
Still, it’s a massive step in the right direction, and ultimately great news for Apple customers. Poor Steve.
