App Development on Android and iOS (Why AIR)

“Adobe Air, as a cross platform app and game development proposition, has suffered the unfair collateral damage from a territorial war that was all but Hiroshima’d by the late Steve Jobs through his Thoughts on Flash letter and more generally his business decisions regarding the iOS platform. Never mind that so much of his argument was conveniently flawed and in someways very miss-representational – the environment and the players have now evolved and most of the premise is not longer relevant. As Moore’s law has continued so have the performance issues become null and void, other arguments such as the misuse of Flash are a straw man that would relate to any language/platform when abused.”
