    Today is Last Chance To Download Adobe Flash for Your Android Device


    Here's a gentle reminder that the last days of Adobe Flash for Android have finally come. Today will be the last day you can officially download Flash Player for your Android device. Technically, development on it was killed back in 2011, but tomorrow it will be blocked, and its final death knell will be quashed.

    Thanks for the reminder, Shadez!

    I am assuming there will be plenty of people downloading and archiving this, and there will be mirrors all over the place, but I'm going to get it now just for "safe keeping".

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    P.S. Love the headstone!

    If a Gingerbread phone has Flash already installed on it and is upgraded to ICS, will Flash still work?

    That's debatable. There are some who are reporting from limited success to no problems for the sites they visit, but others are having poor to no results. It seems more tied to what sites are visited. Unfortunately it will only get worse from here. Fortunately the next generation of online video support is starting to take shape...HTML5.

    I've read about HTML 5, but it's still limited compared to the ubiquitous Flash. I'm going to hope Flash will continue to work for me after ICS comes to my phone and hold onto it until HTML 5 is more widespread.

    I'm going to grab me a copy of this also and store it for safekeeping.

    A shame it was killed though: despite HTML5 being the new and preferred way to go, there are still many legacy sites out there using Flash, and lack of a plugin will make them all but unusable. Having been in web applications development in the past, I can easily say that many site owners had no idea what they were getting into, wanting a "flashy" (no pun intended) site that unknown to them, would leave them trapped. To edit a Flash site, you need to edit the original work files and republish the finished Flash file; it is not like editing a line of text in a standard HTML-based site. A lot of these owners are trapped, IOW, and changing over from Flash will take quite awhile and also be expensive for the site owner, as the ones built solely around Flash would need to be completely rebuilt from the ground up. (This is why I always discouraged clients from using Flash...)

    isn't that the biggest reason on the move to html5... it makes it easier to edit?

    I'm going to say I've honestly never looked at html5 much, and I've done some flash coding, though very limited amounts.

    hopefully this will be a smooth transition

    Question--how could I tell which version I have installed? As you know, there is no "app" per se, but all I find is the icon in my app drawer to change settings. I'm certain mine is up to date. I could just grab a backup of this right from my phone, I suppose.
