    Adobe have releaced a new program called Wallaby which does Flash to HTML5 conversions. So looks like iOS users will get a fuller picture of the web now with Wallaby converting our flash sites into HTML5 viewable content.
    This should mean that you can now watch flash videos etc and games on the ipads

    This is the download page i think for it from adobe

    Wallaby | Adobe Flash FLA to HTML - Adobe Labs

    so it only converts FLA files, which are mostly video, to iSO compatible files, but not on the device. off the device. so you must convert then transfer over. what a faff. just view the content on your computer.

    Yeah, I think that tool is more to help websites convert Flash content into HTLM5 content if they so choose. Not so much for end users. At least from what I've read about it.

    it does what you say converting files etc to help designers etc. but from what i have also read it should allow you to look at websites and allow flash banners etc to work

    yeah, but it's got nothing to do directly with iOS devises. it converts Flash content on a pc/mac, not in an App on your ipad/pod/phone. more a developer's tool

    After you've converted it, you must then transfer it over. but what's the point at that stage???

    You transfer over your flash site to html5 and then users on an iOS device can view that site and watch flash videos or flash animation that wasn't viewable before the conversion.

    Adobe is scared that web designers will move to HTML5 ad stop using flash to make their ads. They are not really worry about anything else, just the animated ad business.
