Written By Sam on 15 February 2010

Adobe has announced about Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR for Android at the Mobile World Congress. This will definitely bring in a lot of Games and Applications to the Android platform and will redefine the mobile experience. Flash Player and Adobe AIR combined with Flash CS5, will revolutionize how developers create mobile applications. This will definitely help the developers by allowing them to create a single application and deploy it to the iPhone and also to other devices via Adobe AIR. Developers can also use the same code and assets to deliver a mobile browser version using Flash Player 10.1.

Adobe announced that a beta of Flash Player 10.1 is made available to content providers and mobile developers worldwide and the general availability is expected in the first half of 2010. Mobile platforms that will support the full Flash Player include Android, BlackBerry, Symbian OS, Palm webOS and Windows Mobile.

Adobe AIR helps developers to deliver web applications outside the constraints of a browser. Developers can take the advantage of functionalities offered by mobile operating systems and devices which include multi-touch, gesture inputs, accelerometer, geolocation and screen orientation. With Flash Platform tooling and the Adobe Creative Suite, developers and content publishers can create, test and deliver applications to multiple devices and operating systems using a single tool chain and API set across platforms. Moreover developers using Adobe Flash Professional CS5 with the Adobe Packager for iPhone can reuse their iPhone application code to create the same application for Android.
