Adobe Determined to Crack Flash on the iPhone Issue, Other Apps to Crack You Up

Even though numerous users would love to get Flash on their iPhone device, they keep getting the string along; it could be compared to a long running soap opera where the ending is never in sight. The CEO of Adobe has recently announced that the two companies, Apple and Adobe, are collaborating in trying to find a solution, but it is not as easy as you might think. This comes after Adobe has previously announced that it will bend over backwards to get Flash to the iPhone; which was later followed by an announcement made by Steve Jobs saying that Flash is not yet suited to run on the iPhone.

"It’s a hard technical challenge, and that’s part of the reason Apple and Adobe are collaborating. The ball is in our court. The onus is on us to deliver”, said CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Adobe, Shantanu Narayen, in an interview for Bloomberg.

This bit of news comes in a moment when people were starting to forget about Adobe ever wanting to port Flash to the iPhone, and is giving the old questions about compatibility a new boost: How will Flash perform on the iPhone if the Mac OS X version has never been properly optimized and consequently is bloated and ridled with bugs? The iPhone is not as powerful as desktop systems, so will it be able to handle a proper version of Adobe Flash, not a Flash Lite version that is too out-of-date and offers much too limited functionality to actually be of any use? Here is another one for you: how well are the two companies working together? This is not the first time Adobe says Apple is providing much needed help with Flash (the bend over backwards reference from above) and still we have no proper Flash for the iPhone.

I guess only time will tell and we can only keep ourselves occupied in the meanwhile – cue in an iPhone app that will crack you up, literally: Cracked. This app will virtually get your iPhone’s screen to crack when you touch it. A video presentation is available here.
