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.

Adobe Flex

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

  • I love that Flash enables my internet browsers to expand their capabilities because it really makes websites come to life.
  • Flash allows cross-functionality under all platforms and is visually consistent across all browsers
  • From Marketing perspective, the creative ability of Flash is exceptional. If used properly, the animation features such as moving pictures, words and sounds around help create flashy projects.

  • 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

  • There are too many updates and they are constantly popping up - especially during the middle of a projects, which causes me to shut down the application and restart the program. Wastes time.
  • There is no mobile browser or device support. Limits a lot of projects - especially apps.
  • Flash player can require a lot of RAM and battery

  • 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 very integrated across various platforms and browsers, versus its competitors. Like Adobe Flash, HTML5, includes playing features for audio within websites. It also has mobile support. However, I don't think it's quite there yet and seems to be a few steps behind in its development.

Return on Investment

  • Absolutely a positive return on investment - our marketing always does better with animated features.
  • It gives our entire firm a meaningful reputation as being open to new and advancing technology and not shying away from it as things advance.
  • Allows us to pull content creators from our internal staff that are not particularly skilled in coding but can use the easy-to-use Adobe platform.

  • Our users have a great positive feedback from the UI point of view.
  • The ease of use of the application had doubled our existing user base.
