Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Flash

Adobe Flash is used widely throughout our company, specifically by our Stategic Partnership team for various marketing campaigns. In my department specifically, marketing, we use Flash a lot to make our clients' experiences more interesting and interactive. It also makes it easier to watch videos, stream webinars and has improved our video chat
  • 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.
  • 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 was a good investment in the beginning, but since there is no mobile support it is quickly dying out and being used less and less
  • single client license - Is not expensive and is super efficient for any size company
  • Very compatible across different platforms - we use both PC & Mac in my company and never have any issues
  • HTML
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.
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.
