Without Flash for the i Phone, those sites didn't work.Apple didn't budge from its position, choosing instead to wait for the Flash-free standards in HTML5 to replace some of the features Flash offers to websites.
You tap a nav item to get the menu, but the site interprets that tap as a selection of that item, rather than triggering the menu, which takes you to the wrong page and makes it hard to get to the right one. Business-wise, Adobe's in an interesting position. For the last decade or so, it's basically dominated web audio and video, and had a big stake in web design and development, thanks to Flash.
Does that mean you can't use Flash on the i Phone?
Bad news Flash fans: Adobe has officially ceased development of Flash for all mobile devices.
As a result, you can feel as close to 100% certain as possible now that Flash will never come to the i OS.
In fact, Flash is almost certainly on the way out everywhere.
