Flash developers anxious to publish on Android

By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 3 February 2011 21:56 GMT

A survey has revealed that over half of responding flash developers are interested in making or porting games for Android.

Venture Beat reports that the survey received 1,400 response with only ten percent currently developing for Google’s smartphone platform, but 52 percent keen to do so within the upcoming year.

Last year, only 42 percent of the same demographic reported plans to develop for iDevices, suggesting the Android’s sudden climb up the smartphone market has impressed smaller developers.

The survey was a joint effort of Adobe, FlashLicence.com and Mochi Media, a games monetisation firm.

EA Mobile has recently revealed plans to expand its Android catalogue, while Sony’s PlayStation Suite will serve as a mobile platform for the publisher.
