Adobe Flash Player Discontinued on Mobile Devices

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Adobe confirmed on Tuesday that it will no longer develop its Flash player for mobile phones after its next release of Flash Player 11.1 for Android and BlackBerry PlayBook.

What the company will continue to provide, however, are “critical bug fixes and security updates” for devices already running the software, according to the company’s blog.

Adobe says it will now focus its attention on HTML5, which is universally supported on major mobile devices, sometimes exclusively. The company called HTML5 the “best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms.”
