Browsing around info and reviews on devices that use flash in the past I have seen complaints on performance. Yes flash works but it puts a heavy load on the processor and battery life. Crashes are not uncommon. Could this also be the reasons Apple doesn't want flash?

But it's on Android phones? Steve Jobs doesn't want Flash on the iPhone, and he's been pretty vocal about it.
Yes Android phones have flash attest some of the high rollers but people have complained about performance and battery life on their devices. One of the reasons why adobe has pushed flash on the droid is to show people that it can run on a mobile device and to try to prove Apple wrong.

Omg! What is wrong with SJ?! Why wouldn't he want flash on the iPhone? U think it could be 'cause he wants full credit for the iPhone and doesn't want to have to share profits?

Here's the truth about why Steve Jobs doesn't want flash on any iDevice.

Steve has a pretty good argument about not using flash. It's an old platform that is out dated and crashes a lot. Ask any Mac user. It sucks up processor speed drains battery life. Then there is the problem with mouseover being such a problem cause there isn't a mouse when using a touch screen. This is all true and very valid but it's not the core reason jobs doesn't want flash on his devices. The REAL truth is that all flash apps would automatically be able to bypass the AppStore and Apple's approval process. It would effect their bottom line and enable a user experience Apple could not control. We will always find ways around Apples stronghold on the user experience. That's why jail breaking is so important. It gives us the users our device back and gives developers freedom to create apps THEY want to make. Not just the ones Apple will allow them to make. Frash is a great example. We can now enjoy flash ads on our idevices (lol) Frash is still in alpha and you can find ways to get it on your device but it isn't an official release due to the fact that it is using adobe's code which is copyright infringement. It's a step in the right direction but still needs tons of work. Follow @planetbeing on Twitter to get any updates.

Why is it better without? Is there a crashing issue or is it just buggy. There are some sites that just don't work well without flash so I'm not necessarily looking for video viewing but it would be nice if they had an update that would allow it in the future. Did the people who make imobilecinema just not make a version for 4.0?
It only does adds and some websites that need it but like I said it mainly does adds.
