Give Those People Air: Adobe AIR Now Available For Android
Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Software" @ 11:00 AM
"We showed you video last month of what Adobe has in store for Android with Adobe AIR apps. And AIR is now available for Android, downloadable in the Android Market."
And here it is, Adobe AIR is now available for download to your Froyo powered Android device strait from the market. If you're not familiar with it, Adobe Air is a runtime environment similar to .Net or a Java VM. It provides all the necessary tools and libraries for you to run programs written using Adobe AIR on your Android device. This opens up the possibility for some great cross-platform software in the near future. In theory the exact same app could run on your Android phone and your PC/Mac without having to be recompiled.
You might also like to know that AppBrain has put together a very nice way for you to browse all of the Adobe AIR apps currently in the market. Check it out here. Find anything you just can't live without? Let us know.
