Apple Vs Adobe: Impact On Mobile Learning Development

Upside Learning

The war between Adobe and Apple just got hotter. Apple has revised the Developer Program License Agreement to ban the use of cross compiler tools like Unity3d, Appcelerator’s Titanium, Adobe’s Flash CS5 etc. Industry experts believe that Apple has done this solely to block the new feature of Adobe Flash that will allow the Flash developers to publish Flash files to iPhone app without any knowledge of iPhone SDK or Objective-C.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

Now for the next big thing…a standard for support true-streaming video via HTTP! There’s nothing standardized yet but ‘HTTP Live Streaming’ (“HLS”), developed by Apple, seems to have the lead…though there are several potential streaming protocol options integrated with a variety of media servers and end-clients. For now, barring any of those requirements for a given project, we’ll be settling on a general MP4/h.264 standard for our projects in most cases.

Apple's recent refusal to support Flash is the latest of many headaches web developers have had to endure as the web has matured but standards have been slow to respond.
