Adobe today has released their Flash-to-HTML5 conversion tool in an effort to bring Flash based content on to non-Flash devices such as the popular iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Skyfire, which is already available for Android, Symbian and Windows Mobile (WP7) has been approved for Apple’s App Store.
Last week, we informed you about Flash port for iPad which was in works by comex – the developer behind Spirit jailbreak tool for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the upcoming jailbreak for iPhone 4. Well guess what, an early alpha version of Flash (which is dubbed as “Frash”) has been leaked and is now available for download. But there is a little catch to it. Since this is an early leaked version, not everything works. In fact Flash based videos wont play at all. You can play some Flash games on Miniclip.com, Newgrounds.com and the likes that’s it.
After porting preliminary release of Flash to iPhone, the guy behind Spirit untethered jailbreak tool for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has now managed to run “real” Flash content right on the jailbroken Apple iPad. Dubbed as “Frash”, this is basically a port of Adobe Flash runtime for Android running on iPad using a compatibility layer. You can check out the video after the break to see it for yourself. It looks really promising, specially because its coming from non other than well known iPhone hacker named comex.
There is currently no way to get Flash on your iDevice, not even for the jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Enters CloudBrowse, an iPhone app available in the US App Store which enables browsing full Flash-enabled websites via a shared web browser on a remote server.
