This is a follow up to my earlier blog.
Do you wish to use your iPhone to access Flash based applications? So far you are out of luck. According to the recent news article from CNET, “Flash 10 coming to most smartphones in 2010”. And iPhone is not on the list.
But why wait? With the upcoming Citrix receiver for iPhone, you will be able to run Flash based applications not only from iPhone but also from many other popular mobile devices. Initially the focus will be to support business applications.
The Citrix technology also adds another additional layer of security by only transmitting the display to the mobile devices. A typical flash based business intelligence report may contain sensitive data. If downloaded directly to a mobile device, the data may be vulnerable to leaks. For business users,the added security may be important.
Here is a quick preview of what is to come.
A business intelligence application is demonstrated above. You can find the demo application at this Adobe web site.
If you know any Flash enabled web application/sites that may be useful when accessed from iPhone, could you let me know by posting comments?
Please check out our iPhone project community site for more details.
