Subject Re: [FALCON] It starts with an idea
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 11:31:52 GMT
I agree with Mike again, I feel that the idea of creating an android bridge
does not conflict with cross platform compatibility. It gives the developer
an extra edge to a choice that already exists, re the ability to create an
android app in air. The edge would be the choice between an air apk or a
native droid one.
