Google endorses Adobe AIR on Android
Soon after the whole iPhone blow to the Flash community was felt, the VP of Engineering for Android wrote an guest post on Adobe’s blog showing love for AIR on Android.
Here is an excerpt, read the full post.
Google is happy to be partnering with Adobe to bring the full web, great applications, and developer choice to the Android platform. Our engineering teams have been working closely to bring both AIR and Flash Player to Googleâ€™s mobile operating system and devices. The Android platform is enjoying spectacular adoption, and we expect our work with Adobe will help that growth continue.
We also look forward to all the innovative content and applications created for Android and Flash. Join us at Google I/O in May to learn more about our work together with Adobe to open up the world of Flash on mobile devices.â€
This couldn’t be more perfect for the Flash community. Not only will you be able toÂ develop for the Android platform soon enough its pretty safe to assume Google is okay with it.
It will be interesting to see if this changed Apple’s views at all, but then again, does it really matter?
