Adobe: 7 million people attempt to download Flash each month to their iPhones
Adobe unleashed a pretty damaging statistic in the whole “You Suck” , “Well you smell!” thing going on between Apple and Adobe right now. Apparently despite Steve Jobs’ claims that Flash is on the way out, Adobe reports that over 7 million iPhone and iPod touch users attempted to install Flash on their iPhones in the month of December alone. Stats were measured based on unsuccessful attempts to install Flash from Adobe.com.
I’m not positive whether 7 million attempts directly translates into 7 million iPhone/iPod touch users – it’s entirely possible it’s just ONE GUY who really doesn’t get it – but I would imagine that it’s pretty obvious that at the moment at least, quite a few people would be willing to take a “buggy, crash prone” Flash implementation on their iPhone than none at all.
I know I misses my Webkinz!
