So, apparently Adobe stopped developing Flash for mobile platforms, including (for some weird reason) Android. Does this mean the end of Flash for desktop as well? In my opinion, no one would bother developing a site driven by technology not accessible from a growing number of mobile internet devices (tablets, smartphones). Thus, we will hardly ever see Flash sites/elements anymore. Is this the case or am I misunderstanding something regarding Adobe plans for Flash?

Flash is dead, has been dead, and will stay dead. It’s been like this for more than a year.

Two years ago, my income from flash per month could be around 2000 – 20000$. Now, it’s less than 1000$ . The same thing happened with HTML5 , a year ago, almost no one wanted it, now, it’s my main source of income. My suggestion is quite simple.

We could stand, like fighter pilots and try to keep a dying plane alive until we hit the ground, or hit the eject button, let it die, and learn something else. I already chose :) and the decision was the perfect one.

No offence intended, just my 2 cents.

Edit: Putting things differently, I earn more from 1 HTML file in ThemeForest than 24 in Activeden :) That says it all for me.

Ofcourse it is. What do you expect when people who dont know how to write 2 lines of code in actionscript open threads entitled like this.

There there… not like that’s the actual reason for it dying out. If that’d be an actual reason, many of the current famous brands (I will not name any :P) would have died off a long time ago, just because their buyers were ignorant or just plain had no idea what the product is, but that it looks cool and does what it’s advertised to do.

It’s just the natural course of nature. It’s not dead, it’s just slowly being phased out.

It’s funny how similar it is to gamedev…

This thread should be deleted or the title should be changed. Think about it logically. There is an entire marketplace devoted to Flash here at Envato. And regardless of the argument, this would be like someone starting a thread named “WordPress is Dead”. It’s bad for business, period…

There’s plenty of other intelligent threads on the subject that don’t have “link bait” type thread titles.

The user was asking the community if they feel Flash is dead, not telling or stating it was. Regardless of the opinions or strong emotions it may stir, I think the title can stay as we don’t like to censor or remove things if not necessary.
