We recently started a poll to find out how many of you thought that iPad should run/support Adobe Flash. An overwhelming 61% of you thought that iPad should definitely run Flash (you can see the poll here).
Recently there has been a lot of back and forth arguing between Adobe and Apple with regards to Flash. Adobe says that iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad are not able to fully experience the web due to not having Flash, whilst Apple say it’s an over bloated piece of software that drains battery life and new technology such as HTML5 can do all the things Flash can do without the security issues.
In a very rare move, Steve Jobs has posted a letter on the Apple website explaining exactly why Apple doesn’t want or need to support Flash on their mobile touch products.
You can read the letter here.
Tell us what you think, having read the argument by Steve Jobs do you think there is still a need for Flash on iPad?
