So lots of folks in the community are saying Mobile and Devices Development is the future. Some even say it will be like having a brand new internet. I have to admit, ideas of being able build Flash applications that can run virtually anywhere is an exciting concept but like all things new, we have a fair way to go before we will have Flash as abundant on cell phones as we do on Web Browsers. I can say development on devices is picking up. Slowly but surely developers are reaching out to support with the same sort of challenges they had when they first started making the transition from Flash animation and â€œWeb Toysâ€? to Flash Applications with advantages over existing technology in the medium. How many of you are developing Flash for Mobile Devices? Perhaps a better question, how many folks think they will probably be developing mobile applications in the next 2-3 years? Where is all this going to go, and what do you need to help you get there?
