Flash for iPhone Official

Apple teams up with Adobe for iPhone Flash at long last. Wait, I see Apples head coming out of it's arse! Here is comes!

Flash For iPhone

And more....

Technical issues aside, this was possible from the beginning. Now can finally, possibly see the flash game developers hopping on board.

Wow. This is pretty big news. The lazy devs that just remake simple Flash games better step it up.

Wow... that's just... wow. Free Office and TBBT episodes... drools. Wait, does this mean flash games will be able to be ported directly to the iPhone?

Nice Im guessing some flash games are impossible b/c they need a keyboard.

I don't see any real good thing that'll come of this. Quite the opposite, if they don't put an option to turn Flash off in my Safari, I'm going to get sick of waiting for all those annoying Flash ads to load.

As far as games, like the others said, with the big difference in input, unless a game can be played with one button and doesn't rely on knowing where the mouse is at all times (because the phone only knows where your finger is while you're touching it), it's likely going to need a bunch of work to be iPhone ready.

I'm a little confused - how are these recent stories about Flash on the Iphone any different than those from the past year?

I'm sure the adult entertainment industry is getting its guns ready for this.

I hope you realize that Flash most likely won't be geared towards games, it will most likely view other video content besides YouTube and animations.... but we will most certainly have to see.

Either way, I'm really looking forward to it.... iPhone 3.0?
