I hate Flash. But you know what I hate even more? Not having the choice to have Flash on my iPhone. Whether you like it or not, Flash is a major plugin of the online world, which is trying to get its way to the iPhone the legit way, and the not so legit way.

The lack of Flash on the iPhone has been an ongoing battle between Adobe and Apple, but it now brings the battle to the turf of other smartphone makers, like Motorola.

The company recently bought a full page ad in the New York Times with a big headline saying “Flash Websites? There’s A Phone For That”.

I think it’s pretty clever, though a bit old news. What do you think?

  • Frash man, Frash. Works great.

    • Yeah I got it working on my old iPhone and it works pretty well.

    • I cannot get Frash to work on my iPhone 4! That makes me a sad panda… Any suggestions?

It has a better interface the screen works better with you hand.. There phone is trying to be a iPhone.. Look who started the phone revolution and all the other phone maker are still playing catchup..

      Everything you said is subjective.

      • Of course it’s subjective, it’s a blog!

      • Burge

        All thay go on about is flash

      • Burge

        So the app store does have more apps
        The apps work they don’t crash ( odd one maybe)
        The screen is better for finger swipe ( proven)
        This phone did make all the phone maker improve there game ( show me a phone that was out before the iPhone that got the whole world wanting it ! )
        Are phone makers still trying to beat the iPhone….yes
        So what phone have you got ? If it’s not a iPhone what you doing here on this site ! Wishing you had a iPhone…..

      • Neeraj

        Sebastien — I wasn’t referring to your post, just Burge’s

        I have an iphone but I also have a galaxy S.

        So the app store does have more apps
        –if you want to pay for them. GMP has more free apps.

        The apps work they don’t crash ( odd one maybe)
        –ive never had an app crash
        The screen is better for finger swipe ( proven)
        –are you serious? That was isolated to nexus one series of phones. The finger response on –the galaxy s SAMOLED is significantly better than my ip4.
        This phone did make all the phone maker improve there game ( show me a phone that was out before the iPhone that got the whole world wanting it ! )
        — yes i agree with you there
        Are phone makers still trying to beat the iPhone….yes
        — they are trying to SELL phones, not beat any single other phone. Its called capitalism.
        So what phone have you got ? If it’s not a iPhone what you doing here on this site ! Wishing you had a iPhone…..
        — worst fanboy comment evar.

        and on that note.

        My phone has 3 times the pixel pushing power than your phone.
        My battery lasts for 30 days on standby.
        I can type faster than you using swipe.
        I can use flash.
        I can actually do true Multi tasking ( trust me, its much better than ios4.)
        I have a 4″ screen that i can actually read.
        I have a hdmi port.
        I have a mini usb port.
        i get FREE navigation.
        virtually any app that is worth having is multiplatform.( name a few that are not)
        i have a microsd card that i can take out whenever i need.
        my browser is FASTER than yours.
        manufacturers that actually care.
        tethering AP already built in.
        and i can go on.

      • Burge

        And yet you have a iPhone

      • Neeraj

        Which i use as a back up 🙂

      • Burge

        As for fanboy .. Ha ..I got just one phone and no it’s not ip4.  I like this phone and what it can do for me ! That’s it. 
        So you got 2 phones then. One not enough ? 
         And you go on about your phone ( the last part of your post ) 
        And yet you still got a IPHONE 4. 
        Sounds to me like you just had to have it …. Fanboy…. 

      • Burge

        No wait. You call me a fanboy.. Yer properly. But I least I’ll admit it. I use my phone evey day for calls, txts, Internet and evey thing else it can do. Just like evey one else on this site and that includes you my friend.

  • appletiser

    I couldn’t get frash to work no matter what I tried, just hope skyfire gets the appl go ahead (:

  • travisgamedev

    Everyone has a choice to not get an iPhone. You can choose the widely hated Flash instead. There are always other options.

    • VnABC

      Common man, we want both, iPhone and Flash 🙂

    you know what i want? More HTML 5 penetration. How is motorola helping that? HTML5 runs better on all these phones so they can keep flash.

  • SoCoMagNuM

    I tried frash but seemed to only work on Ads. Youtube links that normally work by default became gray boxes with an X in top right corner. So really it wasnt worth it to me cause i dont really like to go out my way to make Ads visable to me that I care less about lol. Maybe an update is in session.
