One Response to “Flash Player 11.1 and AIR 3.1 available!”
I don’t think that Flash as a web pneresce will decline and be left to mass-market to produce. The mobile choice is a logical one Lee does clarify it well and makes a good point. As we move on, most of us are having to face the HTML / Flash website building all over again, like we did years ago when Flash was still new (ish). The Flash experience is still great for desktops (and I don’t see AIR packaged apps for these kinds of experiences), and the HTML experience will just be left for mobile devices.Games are a prime example of why I don’t think Flash usage on the web will decline, at least not significantly enough. Look at almost any game on Facebook they’re all built within the Flash platform and are generating tremendous amounts of revenue for both start-ups and established businesses. As we’re still utilizing desktops, packaging Flash games in AIR for web use doesn’t make sense as we’ve been experiencing more and more in-browser tools & applications, where Flash fits in perfectly.I do however believe that ActionScripters will be less focused and involved as a community. And that’s a real shame.
