Can flash work on mobile phones and what adobe application makes them? I currently have the CS4 buncle with flash. works wonders on websites. Really curious if this can do flash for mobile applications are do I have to buy another adobe app to do this?
Kinda depends on the mobile phone/pda. There is a significant number of mobile phones that support Flash, but only in it's slimmed down version, Flash Lite.
Flash Lite 3.0 has just been released, but I suggest developing for Flash Lite 2.0 as you will reach a broader audience. A list of supported devices can be found here.
Flash Lite only supports AS2.0, something that will change by the beginning of next year most likely when adobe scheduled the release of their Flash Lite 4.0. As devices evolve however, it's likely that they will support the full Flash Player rather than it's smaller brother.
General notice: from now on, I would like to ask everyone to put [AS2] or [AS3] (corresponding to the version of actionscript you are using on your project) in front of their post titles when the question is actionscript related! Please help us help you faster. Thank you.
Thanks for the info. does not seem like a wise investment on the flash lite for such few phones that support it. Really surprized. I thought most of these app worked off of a variant of flash. Thanks again!
