Subject [RT] html5 components as an alternate to flex component on mobile browsers.
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 07:48:09 GMT

I think may be if flex sdk can create html5 equivalent of spark components
for browsers that do not support flex. (i would include window mobile
browsers, ios browsers and andriod 4.0x and higher) then it could be a game
changer for flex.

I do not know why adobe does not want to support flash player on mobile
beyond flash player 11. But if html5 is the future then flex needs to
provide components for more and more devices and platform. And i do not
think this is about apple and iso alone its more about adobe's ability to
deliver plugins for all browsers and platform no matter their memory size
or cpu.

Lets just assume that flash player 11 is all, that we get from adobe for
mobile devices and they will not reconsider their decision. So its time
flex needs to create alternate components for html5 browsers.

It is hard time for me as i have to now work on html5 and jquery and now
even try to learn sencha. But if apache flex community commits that more
and more devices will be supported and there will be alternative components
for devices or platforms that do not have flash runtime. I can invest more
time learning flex and flex sdk.

Your thoughts!
