Why Flash Is Fundamentally Flawed On Touchscreen Devices

An anonymous reader passes along this excerpt from Roughly Drafted:
“I’m a full-time Flash developer and I’d love to get paid to make Flash sites for the iPad. I want that to make sense — but it doesn’t. Flash on the iPad will not (and should not) happen — and the main reason, as I see it, is one that never gets talked about: current Flash sites could never be made to work well on any touchscreen device, and this cannot be solved by Apple, Adobe, or magical new hardware. That’s not because of slow mobile performance, battery drain or crashes. It’s because of the hover or mouseover problem. … All that Apple and Adobe could ever do is make current Flash content visible. It would be seen, but very often would not work.”
