Adobe Releases HTML 5 Converter for Flash

With Flash looking more decrepit than ever in the face of HTML 5, Adobe has released a tool allowing developers to convert their Flash files into HTML 5. Codenamed “Wallaby,” the tool is aimed at converting Flash-based content and returning them to iOS platforms. From the International Business Times:

The focus for this initial version of Wallaby is to do the best job possible of converting typical banner ads to HTML5 and supported Webkit browsers include Chrome and Safari on OSX, Windows, and iOS.

Though limited in its capabilities, Wallaby will likely bring bring Flash content to the iOS, where it has never existed before. The tool is currently available and runs natively on both current Mac and Windows environments.
