Flash is a special program that allows for animation on your website. It was once very popular, however, it is not as prevalent as it used to be.
Some important things to know about Flash:
- Cannot be viewed on iPhones, iPads or any devices without Flash software installed.
- Requires a programmer with knowledge of Flash software to make updates. This can be expensive, cause delays and, not to mention, requires having a good Flash programmer available when you need him or her.
- Are generally not visible by search engines.
Flash sites have some nice features, like elegant slideshows, animated eye-catching graphics and visual consistency across browsers, however, these features can be accomplished by other means that do not have any downsides.
Many of our clients have come to us to convert their sites – or flash elements of their sites – to straight HTML, the basic, universal programming language of all websites.
If your website is still using Flash, you’re missing out on interaction from people who use iPhones, iPads or other non-flash compatible devices. We can work with you to make your site more accessible by converting it to HTML.
