Apple and Adobe working on Flash for iPhone

The on-going development of Flash for the Apple iPhone was thought to have been taken care of by Adobe alone. Now, it appears that the troublesome utility requires two heads rather than one as Apple has been formerly announced as a development partner in an effort to get the program to work on the popular handset. Apparently, transferring the utility to the iPhone is harder than it looks,


In an interview with Bloomberg, Adobe chief Shantanu Narayen said that, "It's a hard technical challenge and that's part of the reason Apple and Adobe are collaborating. The ball is in our court. The onus is on us to deliver."


According to the Apple Insider website, the nature of Flash itself is most of the problem, at least that is what Steve Jobs was reported to have said as Flash drains too many resources from the iPhone and its relatively small processor.


A possible replacement is HTML 5. Apple is already talking to Mozilla and Opera to create a Flash-like utility that wouldn't depend on as many resources.
