After 3 years, Apple iOS start getting some flash love

It was on this day 3 years ago that the original iPhone hit the shelves in the US. Most people wont remember the day as the 29th of June 2007, instead they see it as the day the race to building better phones wasnt in the features(ie Nokia phones of the day). Instead the mobile phone market was suddenly met with the formidable force that was Apple Inc.

Lots of controversy has surrounded the mobile platform over the past 3 years. However I think that bringing Flash to the mobile device has been the most controversial. So much so that the CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs has even issued a press release to give Apple a voice to the matter.

A few weeks ago, I stumbled onto an excellent iPhone application that should inspire all flash developers to live with the fact that Apple has no plans that they are willing to reveal regarding the release of Flash for its touch based devices. The mobile application is called Boat Remote(iTunes link) and it has a companion website written in Flash called The Pirata Boat Race. I have given abit of a overview of this app in a previous post if you have never played with the app, I encourage you to download the free remote application and start playing!
