"Mediocre but necessary"

May 19, 2015  |  By Bill_Levinson

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 17.0.0.188

Pros

Necessary to view most video

Cons

Tries to install unauthorized software (McAfee). Controls, e.g. fast forward, not reliable.

"Would should I update my Adobe Flash Player; again???"

May 13, 2015  |  By robertinstx

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 17.0.0.188

Pros

After reading all of these NEGATIVE comments, I think I'll just put-up with the constant harassing reminders to update it.

Cons

Apparently everything about this software, but especially this update, really bites the big one.

Summary

Does a real person bother to read the feedback that is written & freely given to their companies anymore? Apparently not, as this lackadaisical attitude of anything computer related is: You will take, & like it. It's free; so shut-up & accept the mediocre products that we give you.
This feedback is extremely valuable to any company that wants to stay in business & should be considered & heavily weighed when considering their marketing analysis.
Hint: Keep your current customers happy.
And then, you will have more customers to try to keep happy.

"Biggest POS Software since iTunes!"

January 31, 2015  |  By The Main Dude

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.296

Pros

It's free, and it's still priced too high.

Cons

It's free, and it's still priced too high.

Summary

I keep getting a message to the effect that I need to install Adobe Flash, so I give it a try. So far, I have 15 copies of the Adobe Flash Installed in my Download directory, and all they have done so far is to keep each other company. Maybe Adobe has to quit hiring 8-year-old programmers from North Korea and get somebody who knows about such things as Progress Bars, and Error Traps, so that when the installer is running, it can trap errors, report on them, and show you the progress of the program when it's running. Oh, that's right - it's Adobe. Never mind.

"P.O.S. Software"

January 07, 2015

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.235

Pros

none, all it does is crash and update constantly

Cons

I hate this program and wish the internet world could find alternative to this crappy software. It's big and bulky, wastes valuable hd space, freezes up your browser and computer frequently, updates almost every day and crashes more often then that. If I could get rid of this P.O.S. software I would.

Summary

unfortunately, you're stuck with it and all the headaches that go along with it. Adobe really needs to start from scratch and fix it right instead of doing patches that just make it worse!

"The internet would be so much better without Flash"

December 30, 2014  |  By m_petrock

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.235

Pros

None. Every update is horrible.

Cons

Takes up disc space and does nothing but crash and because it always crashes, it's nearly impossible to get things to work right.

Summary

It's almost as if the developers say to themselves with every update, "Let's see what user interface/experience we can screw up next."

"Crashes more than any other software I've ever used"

December 19, 2014  |  By falconsdream

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 16.0.0.235

Pros

When it works, it does what it's supposed to do as a minimal functionality embedded video player.

Cons

Adobe Flash crashes more than any other commercial software (not a small freeware/shareware app) I have now or have ever had. It crashes at least once a day on both Firefox (my primary browser) and Chrome (secondary), and sometimes crashes as many as 10x in just a few hours if I'm working in a lot of windows with extensive Flash, which I do often in my research work. I used to think it was a memory limitation on my duo core 32 bit Win7 PC with only 3.3 GB of usable memory (4GB installed). But it still does it on my 64 bit Win 8.1 laptop with 8 GB of usable memory, and much less software on it that could be competing for memory. I found that if I rolled my Flash version way back to 10.xx, it stopped crashing. Then Firefox started blocking add-ons that have security vulnerabilities, so I couldn't use Flash at all anymore without upgrading to the latest version. Of course, when I upgrade to later versions of Flash it's back to constantly crashing again - seriously limits my productivity!!

Summary

I HATE Adobe Flash Player more than any other software - arghh, it drives me crazy! If there was any way around it without limiting my web use in any way, I would jump on it in a heartbeat. I can hardly wait until everyone replaces their sites' Flash video plugin with HTML5!!!

The fact that it's also one of the biggest security threats on my computer just compounds my intense dislike for this sorry excuse for a software app. Adobe has completely missed the boat on this one and amazingly, just keeps making it worse! Is there something about the Seattle area climate or culture that causes poor software design and reliability but doesn't stifle marketing dominance and monopolistic business practices?
