As anyone who is interested in mobile developments knows, the year 2010 has been a turbulent year for Adobe’s Flash platform, as Apple refuses to support its use for the iPhone and iPad, citing stability, security and performance issues, and is instead supporting the still evolving HTML 5 format, which can be used to perform many of the functions that Flash is now used for, including delivering online browser games and interactive video content. This lack of support, in fact, is what drove early adoption of apps by third party developers, for whom the Safari web browser on iOS devices posed a serious limitation.
