Apple app store gets Flash finally

Apple AppStore Adobe Flash

Come 4th November, Apple users across the globe will get to download a web browser which can play Flash content from the Apple App store. The browser from Skyfire is surely gonna fire up the raging battle in the Smartphone / Tablet space.

The Skyfire browser will be the first Flash app on Apple’s App store. Skyfire has made this possible by turning Flash into HTML5 web standard content and then iPhone users will stream the same from Skyfire’s servers.

Though Apple denied to support Flash-based content on its flagship iOS platform and Jobs made all kinds of statements in the same regard, Apple had to give a leeway to allow Flash compatible apps at the end.

Jobs ran the extra mile too when he made a scathing attack on Flash and advised the Wall Street Journal to drop the software. Adobe retorted that Flash is for a multi-platform world, but Microsoft dumping Flash on its flagship Windows Phone 7 platform is another thing to note.
