By Posted 4 May 2011, 14:08

It is no secret that Apple does not like the Flash Player too much, so much so that their iOS devices do not support it. However, the iPad 2 will benefit from Adobe Creative Suite 5.5, as there is HTML5 harmony. This means that Apple’s tablet device will be able to come into its own and unleash its power.

This software from Adobe is not for everyone, but is a vast improvement on the previous version; it is perfect if you are in the business of creating magazines, newspapers and even websites. What’s better is that Creative Suite 5.5 has been developed with tablet devices in mind, so perfect for the iPad 2, BlackBerry PlayBook or a host of Google Android tablets that are already on or coming to the market.

IntoMobile reports that creators of mobile apps will now feel less restricted with this latest version, as they no longer have to start from the bottom up – not only saving time but money as well. Smartphones and tablets are huge business now, and Adobe knows this. It would have been stupid for them not to offer HTML5 support, as they know that Apple will never support Flash, if they gave up on Apple then it would be like scoring an own goal.

You might start to think what is the downside; well you have to consider that Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 is a premium piece of software, so comes with a price to match. Expect to pay from $1299 to $2599. Is this software worth the price?
