We all knew the writing was on the wall for Flash once Steve Jobs declared that it would never see the light of day on the iPhone or iPad. A lot of the latest smartphones and tablets that aren’t made by Apple also lack Flash support so Adobe was left with no choice but to create Wallaby.
Glancing at the release notes reveals that Wallaby has a lot of missing features and is limited to WebKit browsers like Safari and Chrome. Some of the missing featuresÂ include the lack of 3D transforms, blend modes, Action Script and Video embedding.
Smartphone and tablet users most likely would only want Flash on their devices for video embedding and simple flash games, both of which Wallaby fails to support. Instead, it seems to be a tool to help publishers convert their annoying flash ads to html 5.
