Flash files

Adobe Flash is used to create rich Internet applications, vector graphics, animations, and games. It's been very successful in the past but now the current versions of Android and iOS no longer support it. So, if your application uses Flash, your application will face a breakdown.

Because of the lack of support from the device's OS, using Flash content is not recommended:

  • iOS don't support flash
  • The Adobe Flash Player can only be supported on Android 2.2 through Android 4.0, Blackberry PlayBook, and HP webOS
  • Adobe itself has stopped supporting the Flash Player

So the recommendation is that you need to avoid using Flash content on your website or application.
