Adobe AIR, formerly code-named Apollo, is a cross-operating system runtime that allows developers to use their existing web development skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop.
Adobe AIR enables familiar application interaction models, including drag-and-drop support, rich clipboard access, and desktop and system shortcuts.
Furthermore, Adobe AIR applications run as regular applications, and do not have to run within another application or shell (as web applications do by running within the browser).
AIR 2 builds on the success of AIR 1 by giving developers new capabilities, and even tighter integration with the desktop.
Here are some key features of “Adobe Air”:
- Build stunning, blazing-fast cinematic 2D and 3D games for the browser, iOS, and Android
- Give developers the ability to call into their native, platform-specific code using AIR native extensions.
- Enhanced support for interacting with printers
- Support for the detection of mass storage devices.
- Play high-quality HD video with industry-standard codecs such as H.264, AAC, and MP3.
- Advanced networking capabilities like secure sockets, UDP support, and the ability to listen on sockets.
- Support for native code integration.
- The ability to open a file with its default application.
