    it means we can run flash app natively and developers can easily make 1 app for multiple platforms.

    I must be worse off than JSD_NJ cuz I still don't get it. I mean, I got the app, just no idea why other than to jump on the bandwagon. :eek:

    Adobe Air lets developers create apps using web languages, only it's a native app instead of needing a browser.

    Makes cross-platform development pretty easy.

    Basically, One could develop an app using adobe air, and it will work on the iphone (if supported) or android without modifications.

    I wouldn't have to develop a version for iphone then later release android, My first release will work on both.
     
  8. Ok so is it even worth downloading onto my phone just yet? How long before apps that need it start showing up you think?

    Well, there are already apps for it. Personally, I'm not downloading it until I stumble across an app that I want, that says on it, "Requires Adobe AIR."

    Nothing is bug free when 1st released... I'd wait unless there is an app you want that needs it...

    I've played a couple games with it. It can be, "finicky," sometimes, but I think it's definitely promising.
