by: Alvin YbañezSeptember 22, 2011

Hang on tight as Adobe announces its newest Adobe Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 to bring faster 2D and 3D gaming and video playback on your Android devices.

Compared to its predecessors, Flash Player 10 and AIR 2, the updated versions enable over 1,000 times improvement in performance for 2D and 3D graphics. The updated versions will reportedly deliver a smooth 60-fps graphics rendering for console-quality graphics on desktops, tablets, and even mobile phones.

Adobe recently told the public that its Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 will be publicly available this early October. These updates will introduce its new technology to a large scale of [...]

Flash fix security hole and are set to release Adobe Air?

by: James TromansSeptember 21, 2010

Adobe Air

It’s a session of good news from Adobe right now. Not only have they fixed the security vulnerability effecting Android devices with Flash, but they may also be set to release a version of Adobe AIR for Android in the not too distant future.

I am often asked what Adobe AIR actually is, in particular by gadget enthusiasts who are not super technical. Adobe AIR isn’t just a catchy name; AIR actually stands for something: Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR). So, Adobe Integrated Runtime is an environment that allows one piece of code written on a Windows machine to run perfectly on a Linux machine or indeed your mobile phone. The [...]

Adobe Flash exploit works on Android OS

by: James TromansSeptember 15, 2010

Adobe Flash

PCWorld are reporting that an Adobe spokesperson contacted them very recently to reveal that, “A critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player and earlier versions for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Solaris and Android operating systems. This vulnerability also affects Adobe Reader 9.3.4 for Windows, Macintosh and UNIX, and Adobe Acrobat 9.3.4 and earlier versions for Windows and Macintosh.”

It strikes me that this statement could have been shortened to read, “Right now, a critical vulnerability exists in Adobe Flash Player for pretty much all devices and all versions”. But hey, you gotta be [...]

Adobe announced Flash for Droid 2, HTC Evo, HTC Desire and more

by: James TromansAugust 12, 2010

Adobe have recently released an official video outlining the release of Flash 10.1 for the Droid 2, out-of-the-box. The reason why this is a big deal because it will be the first time Flash is available out-of-the-box on an Android handset. This obviously gives the end-user a far richer web-experience. The video reveals CBS and CNET flash elements and Adobe reiterate the ‘full power of the Flash player, just like on your desktop’. Of course, games are not excluded either, and the video shows Sims 3 for a short period of time.

Flash 10.1 is expected to start making its way to a whole host of different devices, including the HTC Incredible, HTC Desire, [...]

Android 2.2 Froyo coming to HTC Wildfire, Legend, and Desire later this year

by: Derek ScottJune 29, 2010

HTC Legend

HTC has confirmed that it will be updating at least three of its Android smartphones, the Wildfire, Legend, and Desire, with Android 2.2 Froyo in Q3 of this year.  Android 2.2 will offer greatly increased speed for applications and web browsing due to a brand new “virtual machine” for apps and Javascript engine for the web browser. Apps will run 2 to 5 times faster than with Android 2.1, and the web browser’s Javascript support will be 2 to 3 times faster as well. Adobe Flash 10.1 (and Air) support will be included in the update.

Flash 10.1 now ready for Android

by: James TromansJune 22, 2010

Flash on Android

In another piece of hotly anticipated news, Adobe have confirmed that the complete Flash 10.1 for Android is now ready and will also be shipped to other platforms soon. This news comes amid controversy between Adobe, Apple and Google, whereby Apple publically condemned Flash as an ‘out-dated’ technology and subsequently confirmed that they would block it from the iPhone and iPad. Google make numerous references to the fact that Android will and does support Flash and this is certainly something they have used in the past to get one over on Apple. However, despite this fact, they are working hard to convert YouTube from Flash to HTML 5, [...]

Adobe Reader for Android

Adobe Reader for Android

Adobe has recently launched the official Adobe Reader for Android application. This is really something you ought to pick up, and is available in the Android Market. The only criteria is that your phone is running Android 2.1 or greater and it has at least 256 MB of RAM and a 550 MHz processor. Bad luck early adopters!

For those that own a Nexus One, you will know that it already has a document viewer thanks for the folks over at Quickoffice. Depending on your affiliations, you might find that Quickoffice doesn’t actually do a wonderful job at viewing PDF files, speed being a primary concern. The good news is that [...]

Video: Adobe Android tablet running Flash and AIR

by: James TromansMay 5, 2010

Adobe Android Tablet

Down at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, some guys from came across the Adobe booth and upon inspection, stumbled across an Adobe example prototype Android tablet running Flash and AIR ‘flawlessly’. This prototype tablet seems to have been running Android 2.1 to boot.

It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly. That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran. And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible technology.
