No Flash: Deal Breaker?

I am still amazed by the number of people that claim not having flash on iOS is a deal breaker.  Even though there are apps that let you run flash based sites.

VoiceThread Mobile for iOS

One of my favorite collaborative tools for the classroom is VoiceThread.  Their site explains the service as:

“A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways – using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities, and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies. ”

The exciting news is that they are launching an iOS Mobile App in the Fall.  Their goal of the app is “We want to serve the needs of a person with dyslexia or ADHD, an outdoor classroom with mobile devices, a user in the developing world without high-speed internet, a kindergartner, or an elderly lifelong learner.”

No dates have been announced for the official launch, but you can find out more information on their website!

After reviewing the additional features  packed into Apple’s new Mac OS coined Lion I am ready to make the upgrade.

Anyone else plan on upgrading soon?  Anyone already upgrade and have additional tips, tricks, or hints?
