A Year-ender to Yearn For: AIR Apps on Android
Since February, stories about AIR-built apps' coming to Android have already been circulating. Today--finally--we can count down to the last quarter because the release is happening this year!
The coming year-end is yielding Android users a good news. AIR-powered apps will be available for the world’s top OS in Q4 2010, according to an update delivered by San Francisco offices.
AIR apps will be readily available for market, not anymore necessitating special approval process.
Now touted as Adobe AIR version 2.5, its apps will have roughly the same requirements for hardware and software, as it is with Flash Player 10.1. Qualified devices should be running Android 2.2, better known as Froyo, as well ARMv7 processor and OpenGL ES 2.0.
