Web development was revolutionized by Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash) which brought in gloss and interactivity. Flash Lite development has created the same impact on mobile development. Launched it 2005 this platform has become immensely popular in the mobile development community with Flash Lite developers churning out robust applications for mobile phones and other portable electronic devices like Chumby and iRiver.
Adobe Flash Lite allows users to view multimedia content and applications developed using Adobe's Flash tools, which had previously been available only on personal computers. Developers mainly use mobile devices with heavy graphic processing capabilities. It is a development technology executed at the client-side and runs on a mobile operating system. Developers are pushing the level of excellence further up with their creativity and superb technical knowhow.
The greatest advantage with this technology is that it can transform web-based (desktop) Flash content to mobile with little effort. It is being widely used in the creation of Windows Mobile apps, iPhone apps and cross platform mobile apps. It is also being widely used for solutions like Mobile ecommerce, Mobile Groupware, Mobile Social Networking, Mobile SMS Apps Enterprise Mobile CRM, Enterprise Mobile Collaboration, Mobile Conferencing, Mobile ERP, Mobile Shopping and Mobile Fleet Tracking.

The security and backward compatibility of this platform is very high with most giants of the mobile industry like Nokia and Sony Ericsson launching every new handset compatible with Flash Lite. The latest version allows the use of flv files in comparison to only device videos in the previous versions. Using Adobe ActionScript developers are adding a lot more to mobile applications and matching them with the ones on the desktop and the laptops.
With this technology you can easily pack more animation and graphics into the same file size provided by the use of vector graphics. Applications created on this platform follow “write once, run anywhere” (WORA) methodology which does not depend on specific APIs being available which ultimately results in little or no porting. This has proved to be one of the major advantages for this tool over its greatest competitor Java ME.
