Adobe Flash was developed by an American Software developer Jonathan Gay in 1996. First, he developed SmartSketch which is a program to draw on the computer screen with an electronic pen. This was the start of his own company named ‘FutureWave Software’. FutureWave added two-dimensional animation features to SmartSketch so that the users displays graphics and animation over the Internet and from this, FutureSplash Animator is created. Macromedia Inc. bought the rights of FutureSplash Animator in 1996. Then they created Macromedia Flash which became Adobe Flash after the purchase of Macromedia by Adobe in 2005.
