It’s only been a month or two since it was announced that there would be no more Adobe Flash Player for Android phones. This news was heartbreaking for some members of the online poker and online casino industries because using that programming language is how a few online poker and casino apps operate.
So it’s loss, which is still a possibility in the future, would mean that thousands of fans wouldn’t have a way to access their favorite real money gambling apps from their mobile phones anymore, in addition to the loss of popular apps like the BBC news app, and a few Facebook games, like the Zynga Games.
Early speculation is that the player was returned to the Google Play market due to the fact that it is machine that runs the BBC’s iPlayer app. Adobe’s earlier decision was to stop development of the Flash player for mobile devices. Why in the world they would do that? Would you pay to be able to access flash from your phone? Keeping in mind that mot of the Facebook, and Zynga apps such as Draw my Thing, Words with Friends, and Zynga Poker, Bingo and Casino games, other fun apps, like the all new popular Song Pop game, as well as the gambling apps we have all come to love are Flash based.
The decision to return Adobe to the market, thus far is a temporary one. Adobe’s statement at this time is that many of their ‘strategic partners’ the BBC for instance, have requested the re-inclusion of the Flash player, and asked that it’s removal be delayed.
mFortune for instances doesn’t operate using flash. Ladbrokes on the other hand does.
