Jobs: "No one will be using Flash. The world moves to HTML5"
At a recent Town Hall meeting with Apple employees Steve Jobs made it clear that Flash is not coming to iPhone or iPad.
"Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash," he says. "The world is moving to HTML5.”
With Google’s YouTube switching to HTML5 Flash takes a big hit. I’m not missing Flash on my iPhone. I try to skip Flash splash page when I run into one surfing the web and I never ever advise my clients to use Flash on their sites unless they need to build an interactive app with a Cold Fusion backend. So no hard feelings about absence of Flash on future Apple devices.
