We are extremely pleased to announce that earlier this month the number of AIR applications installed across the world, on different devices and desktops, surpassed the magical “ONE BILLION”* mark! We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our entire developer community! Your work allowed us reach this spectacular milestone.
The Adobe AIR platform is stronger than ever. The technology which originally started with the desktop, now powers almost a hundred thousand unique applications on desktops and mobile devices. These applications and games are published on app stores across the globe.
The following chart breaks down the installations based on AIR’s supported desktop and mobile operating systems
The number of new AIR apps being published on different application stores (including Google Play Store and Apple App Store) increases each month. More than 70% of those applications belong to the Gaming, Education and Entertainment categories.
AIR apps are in use across the world. In the chart below we break down the installation distribution by language.
Adobe AIR is the most highly used cross platform technology for creating applications on both desktop and mobile platforms. With such a massive reach, the Adobe AIR team plans to continue providing new features not only for creating better applications and games, but to also help promote those applications in a crowded and competitive space.
* The stats above include only those AIR applications that use AIR Runtime 3.8 and higher.
