Comment: Re:Native Apps? (Score 2) 354

by tonedog5 (#37566878) Attached to: How Adobe Flash Lost Its Way
Apple briefly banned the ability to code iOS apps using 3rd party dev tools, but then relaxed the restrictions: http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/09/09/apple_no_longer_banning_third_party_ios_development_tools.html

The best-case scenario for RIA developers is to have a single code base that has multiple profiles for publishing to different devices. Adobe is using Flash Builder for this exact scenario. FB 4.5 allows a developer to have multiple profiles for Android, iPhone, iPad, numerous other tablets, Web, etc....

Also, Adobe AIR SDK 2.7 really improves the performance of SWF apps published for iOS devices and other devices in general. There is a noticeable difference. I think that Adobe still has a very relevant future in rich internet applications.

I'm not sure about other developers, but I'd rather write my app in a single language and then deploy it to every platform I want to publish to.
