Adobe will not support Flash for Jelly Bean Devices, ends Flash for Android completely on August 15

We Android users have had the advantage of using flash on our devices for a very long time. However, Adobe has come out and announced two things. First off, they will not be supporting Flash on any Jelly Bean devices, which brings us to the second announcement: Installs of Flash for Android will end completely on August 15th.

On Adobe’s website, they wrote:

“We will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th.”

Adobe will, however, continue to develop Flash on PCs. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

    Why? If they continue to develope it for PC’s why not Android? My website uses flash for it’s menu, so I guess I will have to redo my webpage.

      It makes your tablet’s microprocessor to heat up to much and since their is no fan into it, it is no good for your device.

    I guess they realized that more and more are using HTML 5 instead of Flash to do animation and don’t see a need. I have an android phone and an iPad. I browse the web regularly on my iPad and I have yet to need Flash. I’ve had it since “The New iPad” came out!

    In my oppnion it’s quite bad that they don’t use Flash. But still i don’t think it will be any problem with adobe AIR, platform which enables you to create apps for such devices.

    This is a huge problem. Many of Google’s websites for their various services require Adobe Flash and are not compatible with HTML 5.
