For those of you who don’t know, Air is Adobe’s answer to Flash outside the browser. It’s essentially a framework that developers can program against to create apps using the programming knowledge they already are familiar with.
Additionally, since Air is essentially Flash, and Flash is cross-platform, once an app is written, porting it over to a new platform should be relatively simple. This greatly extends the reach of Flash developers, and allows their apps to be run on a much wider variety of platforms that conventional apps.
Air is available in the Android Market for all supported devices and is free, as you’d expect.
That’s the good news.
Now for the bad news: there aren’t any Air apps that currently are available for Android. In other words, downloading Air will simply get you ready for apps that are certain to come in the future. How for into the future is anyone’s guess.
What Air apps do you want to run on your Android?
