No Flash for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Following the announcement of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Adobe has pulled the plug on Flash support for Android.

This announcement is not really a surprise as Adobe was hinting at it for quite some time. According to Adobe, Android 4.1 is where it all ends as they have not continued developing and testing Flash Player and there will be no certified implementation of Flash Player for Android 4.1.

As of August 15th, Adobe is pulling the Flash Player from Google Play and will only offer updates for those that have already installed and you simply will not be able to download it.

Those that manage to upgrade their smartphone to Android 4.1 are encouraged to uninstall the Flash Player as it might exhibit unpredictable behaviour due to its lack of certification.

A lot of sites are still using Flash and devices surfing with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS will be just like running iOS device, without any Flash.
