Macromedia has just released Flash 6 for PPCs. Flash enables developers to deploy rich content in a quick and easy manner. Applications like games are already leveraging Flash and more will certainly be around the corner.
“Macromedia believes experience matters, and that great experiences build great businesses,” said Troy Evans, product manager, Macromedia. “This release is a key component of our mobile and devices strategy to deliver rich content experiences to platforms beyond the desktop.”
“With Pocket PC, Microsoft provides developers with a robust and flexible platform to build the richest mobile applications found on a PDA,” said Chris Hill, lead product manager, mobile devices division, Microsoft Corp. “From content and applications to standalone Macromedia Flash experiences, we are pleased to see that with Macromedia Flash Player 6, Macromedia is continuing to invest in the Pocket PC platform. Ultimately, this will give users a chance to experience compelling Macromedia Flash content on their Pocket PC.”
