Adobe releases AIR 3 for Android, grab it in the Market

Abode Flash Player wasn't the only thing to get an update tonight -- Adobe AIR has also been updated to version 3, and it's again full of performance enhancements and improvements.  ActionScript developers will appreciate support for native extensions, and users will love front facing camera support (we want a Zombie Booth AIR version please!).  There's also support for speaker control and more color depth, as well as better file compression support and more secure streaming to keep Hollywood and the record labels happy.  AIR is deeply integrated into Stage 3D, and the games should be incredible once the new features are finished rolling out.  Get your update from the Market, or hit the install link after the break.

  • What is this exactly? I went to their site to see what it actually does but there was explanation..
  • I believe it's a runtime, sort of like flash. If you had an application that needed it, it should tell you and ask for it to be installed.
  • This app is one that you download and 99.99% of the time you don't realize what it does, until you uninstall it and shit stops working.... Duhhhh
