Adobe Flash Player 10.2 for Android Available Now


Just in time to meet their previously announced March 18th release date, Adobe just released their 10.2 Flash Player update for Android-powered devices. This release is a “final build” for Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread smartphones, but serves as a “beta” for devices running Android Honeycomb 3.0.1 (note the .1 at the end, which is required).

Some of the features of this update include:

+ Hardware accelerated video presentation for H.264 (Android 3.0.1+)

+ Deeper integration with the Android browser rendering engine (Android 3.0.1+)

+ Better content rendering (Android 2.2+)

+ Improved scrolling of web pages (Android 2.2+)

+ In-page viewing of Flash objects (Android 3.0.1+)

+ Enhanced performance for the latest smartphones and tablets (Android 2.2+)

+ Automatic soft keyboard support including a new ActionScript API that enables developers to automatically launch and display the soft keyboard (Android 2.2+)

This update does include critical security patches and should be considered a mandatory update for all those who have Flash installed on their Android.
