Adobe AIR For Android Released

Adobe has announced that their AIR application for Android is now available for download on the Android Marketplace. You may already know this, but it is worth noting that AIR is basically a cross-platform interface that lets developers build feature rich applications based on other platforms like HTML, AJAX, Flash and Flex. The latest release is just a runtime that you can install on your FroYo-running Android machine making it ready for other cross-platform applications.

The release of this new app will open up the possibilities for developers to build hundreds of new applications for the Android platform that will make use of the AIR integration. This basically simplifies the job of the developer since they may now develop one code base that can be viewed across several platforms. Want to check out a demo of such an application?
