We’re getting closer and closer to the launch of Flash Professional CS5, our Flash authoring tool ships with our Packager for iPhone preview. With the new tool it’s possible to create Adobe AIR applications based on Flash, and ship those on the Apple AppStore.
As you may have noticed, we have been shipping our own mobile applications for a while now, including Photoshop.com Mobile on Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Acrobat Connect on the iPhone. In just these few short months we’ve managed over 6 million downloads already, and I’m looking forward to seeing future Adobe products on different form factors.
Of course some developer agencies have already been pushing out their first Flash-based applications using the pre-release packager. With over 100 in the AppStore today, I thought it would be interesting to have a look at the progress being made, enjoy the “presentation”
Although I’ve focused on the iPhone here, everything that you have seen can run on other platforms with a few tweaks. That’s the benefit of using Flash and AIR for your mobile and devices content.
Update: Kevin Hoyt shows some side-by-side demos with Android OS
