Adobe is working to offer Flash support for the iPhone since last year, but it’s only now that the company has teamed-up with Apple itself, in order to make the best out of its efforts.
Interviewed by Bloomberg, Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen admits that developing a Flash edition especially for the iPhone is “a hard technical challenge”. But this is exactly why the company is finally collaborating with Apple – to overcome the difficulties.
Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, apparently wishes something in between Flash for desktop and Flash Lite. That’s because the first version is not suited for a mobile device (it requires too many resources) and the second one doesn’t offer enough features.
Hopefully, for all the iPhone users out thee, Jobs’ wish will become true in the near future.
