What is Flash?

Flash is a multimedia platform used to add animation to a web page and is commonly referred to as Adobe Flash.

Why use Flash?

Flash commonly uses vector graphics to provide animation of text, drawings, and still images on the web. Flash is ideal as it is lightweight and you can do some nice work in Flash that cannot be done in HTML alone. Flash development also practically has no browser issues.

WebIT and Flash development.

WebIT has provided Flash development for many years. Talk to WebIT about the appropriate use of Flash, becase although Flash has its place in web development there are negatives to using Flash, for example Flash based websites are not as good for SEO, iPhones and iPads currently cannot use Flash, and Flash development usually takes much longer than the HTML equivalent. However Flash in the correct context can work very well and be professional and visually appealing.
