New videos show Flash and AIR mobile apps

AIR mobile apps
Adobe today announced that more than 100 AIR apps, coming out of a limited pre-release program with developers, are available on Apple’s App Store.  Created with Flash Pro CS5 and wrapped as native apps (via the Packager for the iPhone, a capability of AIR 2), AIR apps can be distributed to the iPhone and Apple’s tablet today, and Android, BlackBerry and other platforms in the coming months. 
Check out two videos for more details at:  http://www.flashmobileblog.com/2010/04/01/adobe-air-packager-for-iphone-os-demos/  and  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hkfOk8P79s

If  you were watching the Super Bowl (well, I mean, of course,
the Super Bowl commercials), you might have seen this ad for a Flash-enabled
device:

“Hey! ” I hear you cry. “This  blog is named ‘Flash
Mobile Docs’ —  a VIZIO TV isn’t exactly a mobile device”.
 Caught me. But this VIZIO TV IS running Adobe Flash Lite for the digital
home. That’s what allows it to provide all those cool Internet apps and
streaming 1080p HD web  videos. All viewed from the comfort of your couch
on your big screen TV.

 

Flash
Lite for the digital home supports ActionScript 2.0 and Flash Player 8 content.
It also supports Flash 10 media with hardware accelerated playback of
high-definition H.264 video.  You can read more about Flash Lite for the
digital home at:

And some nice FAQs are here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashlite/faq/

 

Just don’t try to put this “mobile” device in your pocket.
