Adobe has pulled its Flash Player from Google's Android store. The move was announced a while ago, the PC version will continue to be updated but the company intends to focus on HTML5 instead of pushing its Flash standard.
The Flash Player had been popular on Google Play - with two-thirds of users giving it a top score.
But Adobe said it was removing the option to install the plug-in because it was likely to exhibit "unpredictable behaviour" when used with the latest version of Android, known as Jelly Bean.
It also suggested that smartphone owners who had upgraded to the latest system should uninstall the Flash Player if it was already on their device.
Although Adobe is no longer actively developing the player for Android, Blackberry or Symbian devices - and never released it for Apple iOS or Windows Phone handsets - it has said it would continue to offer security updates and bug fixes for existing versions until September 2013.
