Adobe is really kicking up a notch Flash development and updates.. with the ability to make super rich, cross browser, fast and smooth experiences and rich apps and games and then publish everything to mobile with no issues with AIR, it's probably the most beautiful technology to work with from developer/creative perspective.

It's a huge thing that it's embedded now in Metro/IE and Chrome. Nothing like great support when you build something knowing it will just work.

But therein lies part of the problem... working for an enterprise, i'm getting sick of hearing "We need the latest Adobe Flash" every. flipping. month.

It can't be that hard to make your flash based app run on a few older versions, surely!!

yeah, you're almost right, except that Adobe itself killed flash for mobile phones...
Awkward, isn't it?!? The company that owns the product, shutdown their own product for probably the most important segment in the market right now...

that's because less and less people use web on mobile and use apps.. and Flash/AS3 platform is quite healthy on mobile through AIR. There are couple of hundred thousand apps and games on iOS alone made with AIR.

I build with all tech (HTML5/JS, AS3, Obj-C/Java) and aside from native (which is still probably the best from taking advantage of the device specific APIs and performance overall), AIR is a blast to work with when you build apps and games.

When there's a technology that can do things Flash we can discuss what will replace it, until then I'm happy they keep improving things..

HTML5 is a joke. The whole thing is a mess and won't be seriously usable across all browsers and platforms for another 10 years. By then, the web as we know it will cease to exist and will have a completely different form so it won't even matter.
