Goodbye mobile flash, you were never good. Today Adobe announced that they will not be supporting Flash Player browser plugin for Android 4.1 and onward.

“There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1,” writes Adobe on its official blog, adding that it recommends “uninstalling Flash Player on devices which have been upgraded to Android 4.1.”

Adobe stopped developing mobile flash in November 2011 and admitted that HTML5 was the future for rich media on mobile devices.

Now, it’s really the end of the line for Flash on mobile devices, as Adobe will disable fresh installs of Flash from the Google Play store after August 15.
