Oh boy. Here comes the real power of Air and Actionscript 3. Watch the video below with Christian Cantrell from Adobe or read more here, but here’s the summary: Air will now take your Actionscript project, and use that as the core code for an app which can run on an Android device, iPad, iPhone, Desktop (windows, mac, or Linux), and inevitably more to come. And apparently you don’t have to do anything code-wise to support each of those various devices or operating systems. Which has been true before with AIR, but adding to that list the iPad and iPhone is pretty major.
And remember people, your job isn’t to love or hate a particular device or company that makes that device. Your job is to make MONEY. Repeat, mooooooonnnnnnneyyy. I read all the comments that come through this blog, and I know there’s been plenty of hatin’ on Apple for the chastity belts they strap on their i-devices, but if you really want to stick it to Apple, make an awesome app and grin big every time you see a deposit in your bank account which says “APPLE” on it.
And of course if your AS3 is rusty, CartoonSmart has you covered with tutorials! =)
