We have all seen pages, where content moves smoothly and clicking makes navigation "floating" nicely. That is absolutely true, that flash enables creation of pleasing layouts and such pages look great. At the same time, most of the people are not so aware about shortfalls of this approach.
The first and most troubling is, that websites made in flash are not indexed by search engines. Those texts, which are inside animations are not visible enough for search engine crawlers, so they are not used for evaluating pages content relevancy. It may impact greately the visiting statistics, whether your webpage comes up well in searches or is buried in the 250 page of Google search results.
Learned blindness by users may create negative impact in the cases when your webpage looks like huge animated advertisement banner. Most of the internet users have learned to ignore everything what is highly animated and looks like advertising - it just doesn't look like trustworthy source of information.
Perhaps the greatest problem with flash is that it is not usable at all through Apple mobile devices like iPads and iPhones. With huge raise of popularity lately, increasing number of visitors doesn't see anything on their screens. We have experienced new wave of clients, who need their old flash webpages to be converted to standard HTML lately.
