has confirmed that Android 4.1
will not get a certification for Flash. It has not said that Flash will not run on devices using the new version of Android, but will not support those who attempt it. So, if you decide to ignore these statements and continue with Flash, you are on your own in everything goes wrong in spectacular fashion. Adobe has also indicated that it will be stopping users from downloading new installations of Flash from Google Play
as of August 15th. The developer will continue to support current users via security updates and important patches though.
The developer had previously announced that it was stepping away from releasing new Flash Player versions for mobile devices. It announced a final version for Android devices and the BlackBerry PlayBook
in November 2011. However, it seems that Adobe was keen to drill this statement home with its latest announcement. Adobe will continue to work with Flash on PC browsing and mobile apps packaged with Adobe AIR. However, the company feels that HTML5 is the way forward for mobile browsers.
