How to load flash animations to iPhone?

Postby sinia » Mon, 16 Nov 2009 5:52 pm

hello, friends, my friend created some funny flash animations for me, and I tried many times to load them to my iPhone, but failed in the end.
Anyone has ever done this? pls help to give some suggestions.
Many thanks!

iPhone, like Android, does not support Flash. To get Flash you must jailbreak your iPhone and load iMobileCinema. It's buggy.

But note that for any smart phone, Flash in its current release is a CPU hog which means it really shortens battery life.

It will take a concerted Adobe effort to write more efficient code (being worked on) and Apple's willingness to install it when they are trying to control the development environment.

I am sure that there is merit in Apple's argument that Flash is a POS... one only do a couple of searches to discover what a shitty 'solution' Flash is when it comes to animation and video... and yet it is the dominant app... shades of Betamax vs VHS.

OTOH, the pukes at Apple want to do all they can to restrict app development to Apple's Cocoa environment... and Flash is an app development tool.

I wonder if I am going to be the one to file an anti-trust lawsuit against Apple. They are chapping my ass.
