Adobe launches Open Screen Project

By on

Adobe has launched the Open Screen Project, an attempt to encourage Flash and Adobe AIR developers to work towards a common application interface across a range of devices.

Announcing the project the firm said that it already had the support of many of the industry's leading technology firms, including ARM, Samsung, Intel, LG and Sony, and content providers such as the BBC and MTV.

The goal is to ensure a common user experience, making applications look the same regardless of where, and how they are viewed. Currently, for example, Flash cannot be viewed on an Apple iPhone, a platform that could be key for many online applications.

Specific tasks for the working group will include publishing protocols for both Flash and AIR, and removing their licence fees – making it possible to automatically download new versions to client devices. @ 2010 Incisive Media
