After queuing for an hour at the flagship Apple Store in SF this morning, we finally got our hands on a stack of magical devices. We’ve spent the rest of the day having fun getting the first Adobe AIR apps running on the iPad.
We’ve tested many of the existing AIR apps that are on the Apple App Store today (Alchemist, BaoZi Jump, Something Fishy, Gridshock, Space On-Air, Moai Mawashi etc, etc…), and they all have been working beautifully.
We have also been working on bringing up the first “HD” apps that take advantage of the gorgeous screen of the iPad.
Christian Cantrell from our team also got a multiscreen AIR app working on the iPad today.
The performance is pretty impressive, seems to be about 2x the performance of the 3GS. We’re looking forward to all the cool new apps that are going to be possible with this form factor.
