In a tweet from the Adobe Edge team, the company have now confirmed that a mobile version of the software will be available on the Windows Phone platform, as well as the iPhone. This is good news for smartphone users, who will no doubt benefit from rich content becoming available in a mobile form, and enabling developers to test their coding on the move. The exact timeline to which it will become publicly available has not been published, however many suspect it will be quite some time yet.
Adobe released a preview of Edge earlier this month, despite the fact that the software has yet to reach the normal beta phase. Adobe Edge aims to allow web designers to create websites in a more graphical environment, with a great amount of support for the HTML5 web standard. WPCentral originally reported the tweet, with hopes that it will deliver a fresh wave of content that has so far been limited with the lack of Flash support on many mobile devices.
As the internet moves forward and HTML5 becomes more common, Adobe has found that its Flash application has become less popular with developers. HTML5 inherently aims to rid webpages of third party applications, so it makes sense that Adobe attempts to keep its products relevant to programmers by supporting the new standard.
