    Basically, yes. But you won’t see much of a difference for a while.
    It means that Flash for Android won’t be updated anymore. Flash on Android will still work fine for years to come, it just won’t get any new features like the desktop Flash might.
    So design firms, web developers and companies may decide to spend a little more effort making non-Flash versions of their sites. Many already do. Of course, some will never support mobile browsers because the very nature of the site demands Flash — for instance, game sites that use Flash to create games much more complex than HTML5 will allow.
    For those sites, apps are the way to go. That’s what I’ve been doing, creating apps from my Flash games so they can be played on iOS even though the site with Flash doesn’t work.
