It’s not just for the PC anymore. Adobe AIR, the company’s application runtime technology, is spanning into the mobile arena with the 2.5 release, which encompasses the BlackBerry Tablet OS, Android and some television platforms.
Adobe is billing the release of AIR 2.5 as a path for Flash developers to build applications that will run on a multitude of devices and reside in numerous competing app stores. Enterprise Mobile Today takes a look.
The Adobe AIR runtime is going mobile with a new release officially announced today. With AIR 2.5, Adobe is extending AIR beyond the confines of desktop Windows, Mac and Linux PCs to multiple new platforms including BlackBerry Tablet OS, Android and even TVs.
The AIR 2.5 release is the latest evolution of Adobe’s effort to create a multi-platform application runtime which first debuted back in 2008. AIR leverages the same skills that developers already have with Flash in order to deploy applications for AIR across multiple types of devices.
