Apple Yesterday's back-pedaling from Apple has been very well received in the industry. Two companies who were bitten pretty hard by Apple's policies - Google (through AdMob) and Adobe - have both responded to yesterday's changes, and as you can expect, they're both pretty happy.

So devs can use the Adobe software to make their Flash apps worth with iOS.

When will we see real Flash support?

When Adobe releases a version that runs on phones and iOS devices that doesn't run like crap.

The ball is very much in Adobe's court.

They need to actually release a version of mobile Flash that really works without killing the phone, draining the battery or turning video in a slide show.

Bookmarked. I'll hold you to this. I'm assuming that once that version of Flash does arrive (and it will, look how good Flash 10.1 performs on Windows), I'm assuming you'll be among the first to advocate Flash on the iPhone, considering your words above?

Hopefully never. I don't agree with Apple's motives, but the more that can be done to discourage use of that abomination called Adobe Flash, the better. Flash is the cancer of the web, and it needs to be removed if we ever hope to have something remotely resembling an open web in the future.
