Adobe AIR 2.5 Converts Apps for iPhone, Android and TVs

Posted by at 9:05 am on October 25, 2010

Adobe today fired up development of its non-computer Flash plans by launching AIR 2.5. The app for creating non-browser Flash apps can now package them for Android and iPhone devices but also tablets, including the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook. ¬†AIR can build apps for Samsung’s SmartTV platform, but ¬†Google TV support isn’t built in.

Android runs the apps as true Flash with a native AIR runtime while iOS apps are converted into native titles.

The desktop apps have also been updated and have better H L support. AIR on Windows now has H.264 hardware video acceleration, with improvements to Linux and Mac installs coming in later versions.

Adobe is also launching InMarket, a tool to package and distribute apps created with Adobe’s tools across some app stores, including Intel’s AppUp Center.

AIR’s runtime and its SDK should be available today. The BlackBerry PlayBook’s runtime should ship along with the tablet in early 2011, and Androidphones should start coming preloaded with AIR through HTC, Motorola and Samsung along with one or more BlackBerry models.
