Swiffy: A Tool From Google to Convert Flash to HTML5

google-swiffyGoogle announced a new tool that can be used to convert a Flash-based content into HTML 5 content that is compatible with the iPhone. This web-based tool, called Swiffy, using JSON technology, SVG, HTML5, CSS3, and ActionScript 2.0 to create Flash SWF files appear as JavaScript to the browser’s WebKit, which is then able to display that content. According to Google, SWF files are translated almost as small as the original file.

Google warns that not all Flash content can be converted using this method, but most can. This tool would be helpful for owners of the iPhone because the iPhone’s Safari browser can not display the Flash-based content.
