Adobe AIR Update Includes Tablet Support and Better Performance, Where is Flash though?

There is a big ol’ Adobe AIR update in the market and it brings the app some much needed tablet support, but also improves overall performance and GPU-based rendering.  Sweet, right?  The sad thing is, we’re still trying to see where AIR fits into our everyday lives.  After being introduced a few months back, I can’t say that I’ve actually used an AIR app since…but maybe that’s just a “me” problem.

Oh, and where is the Flash 10.2 download!  Let’s do this Adobe!

Cheers Deep!

    Adobe has a cool directory app that runs on AIR. You can click on someone’s location and it will pull up a floor plan map with their office highlighted . . . of course, I work for Adobe and it’s only available for people with VPN credentials . . .

    OK, nevermind carry on!!

    – Nope, you’re not alone: I’m in the same boat. I actually uninstalled AIR late last year due to space issues on my Droid 1 and the fact that I never used it. However, that’s mostly due to the lack of any compelling AIR Android apps to begin with. On Windows, only 1 AIR app gets my consistent use: TweetDeck. Ironically, their Android app doesn’t use AIR at all.

    To answer your question kellex…in march

    my main complaint with Adobe AIR is the app’s size — shows up as 16+ MB on my DInc and App2SD isn’t available. So to use for just a single good app (NetFlix Queue) is dumb…

    Many air apps exist. Hint any app with an infinityish looking graphic overlayed on the normal icon is an air app.

    The only AIR app I’ve used is Tweetdeck I believe. I’m pretty sure it said it was an AIR app.

    Why would Adobe waste ANY resources on making Air compatible with tablets right now? We don’t care about Air, we want Flash 10.2!

    Air seemed promising when it was released but I haven’t really used it either. Everything I’ve noticed running on it is ugly and clunky.

      There is a NetFlix queue manager app that uses AIR and runs pretty well. I’ll have to update AIR and see how it runs afterwards.
