Download and Install Flash Player For New Android OS Versions

As we know Adobe Flash does not support Android version Jelly Bean onwards. This tutorial tells manual steps to download and install Flash payer on Android version4.1 onwards.
Once a time where Adobe flash had a unique place in Internet. All websites and tools supported adobe flash and were eagerly waiting for new updates from them. Recently Adobe lost its past glory. Main reason is the arrival of a new player HTML5. HTML5 seems doing most of the Adobe flash's duties and while seeing it Google stopped caring Flash and they totally excluded the flash from their future products. Apple did it very early and Google followed it later. Because of this, latest versions of Android does not allow users to install Flash. It started from Android version 4.1 and above. Flash also stop providing support for Android Jelly Bean version onwards. We can see there is no latest version of flash players for Android devices. Though there is no current versions of flash players available for latest android devices, we can download and install them manually. We can download Flash player for Android version 4.1 and above from the Archived Flash Player Versions.

Steps to Download and Install Flash Player on Android Version 4.1 and above

  1. Go to Home screen

  2. Click on Settings

  3. Click on Security and Check. Now check the box Unknown Application and confirm the settings.

  4. Download archived flash player version from Adobe website by opening following page on your Android browser.

  5. Scroll for Flash Player for Android archives and select the suitable version for your Android version.

Please note that Flash payer is no longer supported in Google play store and we cannot expect perfect working of the installed flash player on your latest version of Android OS irrespective of the vendors life Samsung, LG etc. Though it is not fully supported, till the exact arrival of HTML5 we have to use flash payer to view any flash based videos in Internet. I personally say Android should have supported Flash player and vice versa. What ever the reasons to stop support for Flash player on Android OS, it finally hits the regular users. So it is good to know even though there is no official support, we can still download and install Flash player on latest version of Android Operating System. The same goes for mobile world too. According to Google flash is no longer required for Android phones and from Jelly Bean version onwards they do not certify Flash. So Google stopped support for Flash in Android devices. Apple already avoided Flash from apple devices at the beginning itself.


Why Did Android Stop Supporting Flash

Many people are still not aware of the major reason of Google's decision to stop support for Flash. By the release of Android 4.1, Google stopped even certification for Flash. Google said Android does not need Flash any more and flash cannot run on android 4.1 and later versions. It is all because of the emergence of HTML5, a new age of web developing. HTML5 can do all the tasks Flash does and Flash is no longer an important tool in Internet. To view video and play audio on a website, we do not need Flash if we code the website in HTML5. So as the part of improving web world major players in Internet decided to stop using flash for their products. As a result Google stopped the application of Flash in Android. Starting from Android Jelly Bean 4.1 Android does not support flash. Adobe also stopped supporting latest Android versions.

Though we cannot find latest flash players for Jelly Bean, we can download and install compatible flash player from Adobe Archives. First part of this article shows how to find and download flash player for recent versions of Android Operating System.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
