Adobe not so excited about Apple iPad’s Flash omission

January 28, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Is there something missing from Apple’s approach to connecting consumers to content? We are talking of the latest iPad. If you haven’t thought about it, here’s Adobe’s take on that. Adobe group manager Adrian Ludwig has written in his blog that “there’s something important missing from Apple’s approach to connecting consumers to content” when it comes to the company’s new iPad.

Looking into it in greater detail, it becomes clear that Apple’s iPad will not be supporting Flash. So Adobe’s worries have a reason. An iPad sans Flash could be an irritant for users who look forward to a full-fledged Web experience on the iPad.

Ludwig has written in his blog that Apple is continuing to impose restrictions on their devices that limit both content publishers and consumers, and that without Flash support, iPad users will not be able to access the full range of Web content, including over 70 percent of games and 75 percent of video on the Web.  So that means, the iPad sans Flash could be an incomplete device. Or, is it? People looking at connecting to a range of Flash sites would not be able so, and these sites could include Farmville, ESPN, Disney and a whole range of similar ones. Do we have something missing here? Or is it just Adobe’s concern? If you are a potential user, let us know what you feel.
