These are exciting times for developers that want to spread their wings with interactive-design. And I have a project forth coming that I wish to give the user a great experience every time they use the application. Flash is the perfect candidate for the experience I wish to give those users.
However, because of lack of love between Flash and Apple, I feel my hands are tied. Because this is a web service oriented application, that will serve thousands of customers, I am afraid that it will be to much strain on the server side to be a flawless user experience. Not to mention the amount of server resources it would take to generate the render the graphics on the fly. Throwing XML to the client would be optimum.
Mobile is a huge part in this game now as well, and that needs to be weaved in the mix as well. HTML5, CSS3, and company just doesn't cut it yet. Has anyone found a great solution to this transitional issue?
