    • Developing with Adobe AIR
      Eliminates the need to learn multiple programming languages
      iOS -> XCODE
      Android -> Java
      Windows -> Silverlight
      Blackberry -> Java
      Develop in Flash, export to your desired platform
      iOS -> IPA file
      Android -> APK file
      Blackberry -> BAR/COD file
    • Developing with Adobe AIR
      With most programs, you’re exporting an AIR application
      AIR app is “wrapped” with a native installer (i.e. APK file)
      Application is installed
      If user doesn’t have AIR, they will be prompt to download
      AIR app is then installed
      iOS is the only exception
      App is converted to a NATIVEiOS application because iOS does not support Adobe AIR
