Its been talked about for a while but now Adobe AIR has finally landed on the Android platform. The Adobe AIR runtime is now available on the Android Market and with it will come a slew of new apps to take advantage of it. Developers using Flash Builder or Flash Professional CS5 can publish AIR apps directly to the Market and all everyone else will need for it is the runtime. Adobe AIR apps used on the desktop won't be compatible, so only apps designed for the Android platform will work. There should be a handful of apps already available however, since Adobe has had AIR for Android with some developers on a trial basis. In any case, this is good news for Android users as it will open up a whole new way to use and access apps.
