Adobe Sticks A Fork In Flash For Android
Jun 29, 2012, 9:28 AM by Rich Brome
Adobe is effectively killing off its Flash Player browser plug-in for Android. The current version of Flash will be removed from the Google Play store on August 15th. As previously announced, Adobe won't develop a version for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and the current version of Flash - if it works at all - won't be supported by Adobe on Android 4.1. Users can only maintain a certified installation of Flash - including future security updates - if they have a device that came with Flash pre-installed and do not update to Android 4.1. Users who download the Flash Player themselves from Google Play before August 15 technically have an "non-certified" installation, but may continue to receive security updates as long as they don't upgrade to Android 4.1. The news is no surprise, as Adobe announced over seven months ago that it was halting development of Flash Player for mobile devices. The company promised to continue releasing security fixes, however, and one such update was just released earlier this month. Adobe has refocused its mobile efforts on Adobe AIR and HTML5.
