Apple’s Change of Heart On Flash

Dotnaught writes “In a blog post, Walter Luh, co-founder of Ansca Mobile and a former employee of both Apple and Adobe, recounts how Apple once promoted Flash on the iPhone then changed its mind because Flash didn’t provide the optimal mobile user experience. ‘I think that Apple came to the same conclusion I’ve come to — namely that Flash has its strengths, but not when it comes to creating insanely great mobile experiences,’ he writes. Luh’s piece ends with a pitch for mobile development using the Corona SDK, a Lua-based programming environment that strives to recapture the simplicity of early versions of Flash.”
