This is an understanding I have to accept. As my understanding is of now, Flash is an integral part of making Clickboards work. I will go ahead and tell you the secret as I remember it:
Clickboards are made in Flash. The input material such as phone numbers go into input boxes just as if you were making equations. These boxes are part of the Flash programming. The material has a destination, the destination can be a URL. At the particular receiving box at this URL, the data is received, just as if a mathematical part of an equation was received for computation. Both the phone number and coupon code. With this information, the coupon picture is uploaded to the users feed.
So this all happens with Flash and is very important in the development of the mobile applications. With Flash, this is very easy. But as you will see below, the table has not yet turned and more understanding of HTML5 needs to be made to understand if the same thing can be done as stated with the Flash entry and accepting boxes.
It’s been an interesting year for Adobe Flash. The technology has withstood criticisms from Steve Jobs, has been heralded by RIM and is now available on Android handsets.
Adobe is doing a lot of work to help make Flash more suitable for mobile platforms; the problem is for Flash to really work well on these devices, existing Flash content needs to be reoptimized. For many developers or companies, if a site has to be retooled anyway, it is simply more pragmatic to adopt a solution like HTML5 that will work on a wider variety of mobile platforms.
Flash 10.1 was a big improvement, and I expect that Flash 10.2 will be even better, but I still don’t think Flash is going to become a massively adopted mobile technology.
