Adobe Flash

Adobe flash is best to use for developing applications specifically for desktop and laptop PC websites. We use it a lot with clients who send us content from other countries to stream and/or view video, audio and multimedia. Since there is no mobile browser or device support, it can not be used for any app related projects.

If your site is purely animations (like some company timeline from the start of the company to the current date), it's well suited for this use case.

Pros

  • Flash allows for unlimited creativity! You can really do whatever you desire and don't feel restricted by the software.
  • It's fairly easy to import assets, and lots of them.
  • Minimal to no programming skills are required - which is especially important because programmers are typically not designers, and vice versa.

  • Highly advanced UI platform, well suited for building enterprise applications.
  • Cross browser issues do not exist as it runs the same on every browser via Flash Player.
  • Animations are something that comes out of the box.

Cons

  • Certain websites, platforms and applications that use Adobe Flash technology have always seemed to be slower than the sites that do not use it.
  • Those who want to use flash to watch and/or stream movies, in order to watch these movies with the Adobe Flash application, Flash Player needs to be installed. A lot of people now do not want to download more applications to their computer due to space and viruses.
  • Accessibility is a concern with Flash. Things need to be properly coded and someone who is not well versed in Adobe Applications, might have issues with things like changing text and/or having alternative text.

  • It's heavy as it needs to load the Flash plugin first before rendering anything to the user.
  • Not future ready as there is no support for mobile and tablet platforms.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Flash is more universally accepted and larger variety of formats accept Flash over Vimeo Pro. We find it easy to promote Flash as the standard for use in our offices because no matter which software is used we can easily integrate into Adobe Flash
