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.

Adobe outs Touch Apps for Android creative types

Adobe has launched a new suite of Touch Apps for the artists and photo editors out there that like to work on the go. The apps support Android devices and allow the user to have some of the functionality that is found in Adobe Creative Suite. These apps were announced last month and can be picked up right now on the Android Market with each priced at $9.99.

Former Flash boss slams Adobe, stock price plunges

Earlier today Adobe made a very unpopular decision: it's abandoning development of Flash for mobile platforms, including Android, as part of a company-wide restructuring effort. Shareholders likewise abandoned their Adobe stock, closing out the trading day with an almost 8% loss, up from even greater losses in the morning. To add insult to injury, former Adobe executive Carlos Icaza told Read Write Web that the company ignored his call to focus on touchscreen displays way back in 2007, leading him to leave his job and get an incredible amount of post-employment vindication right about now.

Adobe officially halts development on Flash for Android

Much speculation has been going on this morning about Adobe's future plans for the mobile platform, and now it's finally official. After some recent cutbacks including hundreds of layoffs, Adobe will halt major development on Flash for Android, instead focusing on HTML5, with the effort that went into flash transitioning to the Adobe AIR platform for app development. Bug fixes and security support (a critical part of the attack-prone Flash) will continue, and at least one more major release will be posted, Flash 11.1.

Adobe Flash Player 11 hits Android Market

Adobe unveils more powerful Photoshop Touch

Let's face it: Photoshop Mobile is a joke. It's not really an image editor as much as it's a tweaker, an app that's just about worth its free price tag and doesn't really live up to the Photoshop name. Now that tablets with the screen real estate and horsepower to take advantage of more traditional photo editing exist, Adobe wants to take advantage of them with Photoshop Touch for Honeycomb.
