Subject Re: [RT] html5 components as an alternate to flex component on mobile browsers.
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 16:39:59 GMT
We use AIR for all our Mobile Dev work and have been quite successful
building large scale SASS applications with the Flex SDK and AIR for both
Android and IOS. We did have to write our own Touch components that were
overlooked or abandoned by Adobe but it has not stopped us from moving
forward with the Flex SDK. So far Adobe is doing a good Job supporting new
features in Air for Mobile. Now it is up to us to fill in the gaps with
Mobile (Touch) Component.
