Adobe to finally pull Flash from Android

We've heard this more than a few times, but today Adobe looks to get serious and actually do it. Starting tomorrow Adobe will no longer be allowing users to download their Flash Player for Android. It has officially reached the end of its life. Adobe has been a part of Android for a long time, but they are finally dropping support.

Adobe Shadow helps tune up your webpages for any mobile device

Adobe has just recently announced Shadow, their new toolkit to help developers make their web page perfectly functional on any mobile device. With so many different Android devices currently on the market, this is going to work wonders for web professionals when trying to find problems in their code. As you navigate through each page and link, Shadow lets you know what will be compatible with different screen sizes.

Adobe Flash updated with more ICS device support, bug fixes

The popular but slowly dying Adobe Flash Player for Android has just received another update today in the Android Market. With Adobe not officially supporting Android with or after 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in general this update is a bit confusing as it mentions "compatibility with Android 4 supported devices". Adobe has also addressed some vulnerabilities in the security of the app.

Adobe Flash Player updates just in time for the Galaxy Nexus

When review units of the HSPA+ "international" version of the Galaxy Nexus came out, we were surprised to find that Adobe's Flash Player was nowhere to be seen on the Android Market. Of course, that didn't mean much to most US users, since Verizon's combined exclusivity and "delays" meant they couldn't get a hold of an Ice Cream Sandwich phone anyway. Well, Adobe's software developers have delivered just in time, and you can now download Flash for your shiny new Galaxy Nexus, no matter where you are.

Foxit Mobile PDF Reader available in the Android Market

If you've been using the Internet for any amount of time at all, you probably know one of its founding principles: Adobe Reader sucks. Many savvy desktop users choose a lightweight alternative for displaying simple PDFs, and Foxit PDF Reader has long been a favorite among them. Now Foxit Software has released an Android port of its popular reader, and you can download it now in the Android Market.

Adobe promises December launch for Flash on Galaxy Nexus [UPDATE]

Imagine our surprise when review units of the Galaxy Nexus couldn't access Adobe Flash on the Android Market. It turns out that this had nothing to do with Adobe's unceremonious drop of mobile Flash, but rather the fact that the current application simply needed an update to support either the Galaxy Nexus or Ice Cream Sandwich. According to Adobe's official Flash blog, both Flash and AIR will be updated sometime next month in order to support the Galaxy Nexus.

Firefox alpha adds Flash support and really bad timing

Flash developers and enthusiasts are still reeling after Adobe dropped support for the mobile version. But the convergence of Flash users and Firefox fans (including yours truly) should get a little joy out of the fact that Mozilla is going forward with its Flash support. So far the Android version of Firefox doesn't work with Flash, but you can head over to Mozilla's web page and download the latest "Aurora" alpha to give the just-added feature a try. Naturally the implementation is a little buggy, and it doesn't help that Firefox Mobile isn't a speed demon in the best of conditions. But it works, sort of, and if you live in Firefox and rely on that one extension or Sync's bookmarks, you're one step closer to a single browser solution. Flash is expected to be available for the full (Android Market) version of Firefox sometime in 2012. Android fans and Flash devs were livid when Adobe announced that they would end support as part of a restructuring. The last major update for the Android version is in the Market now, though Adobe has stated that they'll continue with periodic bug and stability updates. Adobe will begin shifting its mobile focus to HTML5 tools and AIR, while the desktop version of Flash is still - for the moment - in active development.
