Dreamweaver to Have More Mobile Support
Mobile technology is growing increasingly popular these days, and it has some of the largest markets and growth out there. More and more frequently, we are finding internet tools and resources being delivered directly to our phones. So many companies are trying to quickly develop applications to make any type of work more accessible to your mobile device. Adobe is one of those companies.
Dreamweaver is one of Adobe’s most successful programs: it helps people create internet and web development, and it makes design aspects of creating a website simple and easy. Now, Adobe has been working on a Dreamweaver application to make the software create websites that are more available and accessible on your phone. They gave a sneak peak of the software in 2009, and after its success, Adobe decided to start full production to optimize mobile users’ experiences with Dreamweaver-created sites in a mobile form.
The new software support includes HTML5, which will help users create tags and work with their sites more simply via mobile device. And, what’s even nicer is that if you already have the Dreamweaver software, you will be able to download the HTML5 extension pack at no cost–it will work with both PC and MAC operating systems.
Adobe is jumping on this wagon, I believe, for a few reasons: first of all, Apple is not investing in Adobe Flash software at least for a little while (because of their monopoly on it), so they would ultimately lose business or support if no iPhone (or other mobile device that doesn’t support Flash) can access these Dreamweaver-created sites. Second, I really think they want to embrace the alternative as well. If HTML5 is a simpler way for mobile devices to access high-quality sites–even on phones that do support Flash–then why not try to better themselves?
Adobe is quickly moving forward with this software, so you should expect to see it soon!
