Adobe’s AIR for mobile could stand as Flash for iPhone

Posted: February 25, 2010 in Apple, Mobile, Technology

On February 15, 2010, Adobe has enlarged its standard phone push with AIR for mobile. The new technology, similar to the desktop variant, allows Flash applications to run offline and also outside the Internet browser. Specific phone features can be accessed in mobile form; these include multi-touch, accelerometers or GPS positioning.

According to Adobe, the existence of AIR for mobile phones can be a problem for iPhone development. The Packager for iPhones will work for AIR as it does for Flash, so Flash CS5 Professional users will be able to create an iPhone application, which can be ported to other platforms (for example, through AIR).
