What does the future hold in store for an online Flash application?
This year has seen many reports in the online media announce the certain demise of Flash. With the introduction of HTML5, the ever expanding abilities of jQuery and the release of Apple's mobile devices lacking in support for Flash, one would be forgiven for questioning the benefits of a future Flash application for their website.
However, we believe the future of Flash is promising and the demand high. Take the Flash Player for example: this application it not going anywhere. It is currently installed on well over 90% of desktop computers, and with the release of Flash Player 10.1 will soon be available on a large number of mobile devices, as Adobe works closely with other companies to ensure users have a mobile web browsing experience that enables the use of Flash and mirrors the ease of a desktop.
Flash already compliments other languages and will continue to do so with most of the new players introduced to online scene, such as HTML 5.
Currently a perfect example of the ever-increasing benefits of Flash is ActionScript's relationship with PHP. With these two working in harmony together, dynamically updated websites can now have a complete Flash interface with innovative animation and unique layouts. At Incodius we embrace the relationship between the two languages to create all-encompassing web applications for the client with grand ideas.

Another way Incodius benefits form ActionScripts ability to compliment other languages is through its relationship with XML and PHP. At Incodius we create custom designed MP3 Players that will play any MP3 file you upload while uniquely representing your musical style and desired aesthetic.
