Adobe announced on their official blog that they will drop support of their Flash plugin on future Android devices ( Android 4.1 Jelly Bean). What that means is that Android device users will soon face the same problems iPhone users experience when they visit a Flash powered website – it won’t work!
So why the move? Forgetting any pressure Apple put on the subject by always boycotting Flash on their iPhone and iPad devices, the move does make sense. Flash is heavy, resource hungry and requires constant updating so for mobile devices it is a pain. Poor spec’ed devices performed poorly and no doubt Adobe bore the brunt of most of the complaints. Instead of fighting against bad devices Adobe can focus on their Adobe AIR platform which is optimized for mobile devices.
But what does it mean for DecoNetwork users? Well, nothing! As you probably already know we made the good decision many moons ago to not use Flash in our platform so everything from our online designer and down is 100% non-flash based.
Now you can sleep well at night
