Where do you get this widget?

Air even if everybody seems to be claiming they are dead. Usually I search the playstore for
ids starting with com.adobe or similar. But when working on Flexmojos Mobile support I noticed
that this prefix isn't really proof of an application using Air or not ... but it still lists
a lot of well-known applications (mostly games). Another option was to run the Air application
on my mobile phone where it some times lists games built with Air. Unfortunately I couldn't
reproduce opening the Air App and it showing me the list ... most of the times it only showed
me 2-3 selected games and nothing more.

widget to my home screen. It seems to be intended for grouping together Air based applications
on your smartphone. As expected this was empty when I placed it on my screen (I didn't install
anything using the Air-Store (or what you call it)) ... yesterday however it was suddenly
filled with games I had installed on my phone. The funny thing is that I don't have many games
as I rarely play, but 100% of the games that I do like to play seem to be built with Air (Siedler
von Catan, Cut the rope, Bejewled, ...). I intentionally installed another game that I knew
not to be built with Air and that didn't show up in the widget.

dead" mails, but this one is more a "alive-and-kicking" and if this finding helps someone
convince people to give it a try, it's worth talking about it ;-)
