Adobe Launches Their New Software for Developing Applications
Adobe is now pushing updates for their Flash Builder and Flex framework to develop apps for iPhones, iPads, and BlackBerry PlayBook.
Adobe is now updating its application development software product, Flash Builder, and the open source, Flex framework, to enable developers build applications for iPhone, iPad and Blackberry Playbook. That is following the support for the Android platform that was added last April.
The Flash Builder (4.5) and Flex (4.5) are offered as stand alone products of Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium and Master Collection. Flash Builder also supports application development for Android, Blackberry PlayBook and iOS. Now, developers can use Adobe to create apps that can work across the web, desktop and various tablets and smartphones — granting them the ability to reuse almost all of their existing codes and use common logic across all platform.
Using the Adobe’s new application, developers can create Flex and ActionScript application and distribute it by using Adobe AIR Software, which will be supported by over 200 million mobile devices by the end of this year. This is a way for developers to work around Apple’s no-Flash restrictions when it comes to building apps for iOS devices.
Flash Builder 4.5 Standard will cost $249, while the premium version of it cost around $699 and the upgrade price will be $49. Flex 4.5 is available as a free open source framework.View Article Source »
