it sounds like the person writing this article has never actually USED flash on a mobile device.... touchscreen support has always been there (since at least the early 2000s) and worked perfectly well.


Um, please pass whatever you are smoking to the next person. Because you really couldn't have just typed that right? You do realize that touch support didn't come to Flash until v10.1.53.64 (June 2010). So please, give Doc Brown back the DeLorean, get out off Marty's lap, and puff, puff, pass, man, puff, puff, pass.

Well, Flash 8/9 was on the Nokia Internet Tablets circa 2006 onwards. It did sucked balls though, and never really worked very well.

You're thinking of *multi-touch* support. Just plain old single-touch support (via mouse events, which still worked fine on touch screens) has been present on Flash for as long as such devices have been around (2002 for Windows Tablet PC, 2003 for devices supporting Flash Lite).
