Flash Could be Coming to the iPhone Soon; Depends on Apple's approval

flash on iphoneWe all love the iPhone, but the problem is that we love it so much that we want it to be perfect.

One of the features that would help make the iPhone perfect is support for Adobe's Flash and looks like we might see it soon as Paul Betlem, Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe Systems, has just confirmed that Adobe is indeed developing a Flash Player for the iPhone during a Town Hall meeting at the Flash on the Beach Conference.

Adobe's Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen had raised hopes in March when he commented that Adobe had downloaded the iPhone SDK and are planning on building a Flash Player for the iPhone and distributing the iPhone app via Apple's iTunes App Store.

This was a few weeks after Apple's Steve Jobs had stated that Flash Lite for mobile was not full featured enough, while the full version of Flash would not run well on the iPhone.

It was widely speculated at that time that Adobe could run into problems due to restrictions of the iPhone SDK.

However, there is still some hope of iPhone supporting Flash as Paul Betlem, Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe Systems, has again confirmed that Adobe is indeed developing a Flash Player for the iPhone when he was asked a direct question by the audience at a Town Hall meeting at the Flash on the Beach Conference.

He said "My team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it's a closed platform." He noted that it depends on Apple's approval but claims that the player could be available in a very short time if they get the nod.

Let's hope Adobe gets the approval as we can't wait to watch the flash-only videos on the iPhone. What about you?
