Adobe AIR now supports x86 Android


During the last few months, several device manufacturers have released Intel Atom based mobile phones and tablets. Momentum has been developing in the market for x86-based Android tablets, and with Intel committing that there will be 40 million tablets shipping by the end of the 2014, we knew the time was right to deliver native AIR support.
We have been listening to our AIR developers and we are very excited to announce support for packaging of AIR applications for Intel x86 based Android devices. This support will allow AIR developers to directly target the x86 Android platform, providing the best performance possible from their AIR applications.
With this new support, developers will be able to package their applications in both shared and captive modes. The AIR Runtime application with x86 support will be published on the Google Play Store, and will receive regular updates in sync with our other supported platforms. This capability will soon be available in the AIR SDK on Adobe Labs, so check back soon! The final version will be made available in one of our upcoming major releases.
The Adobe AIR platform is stronger than ever.  Today, Adobe AIR powers more than 50,000 unique mobile applications on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. These applications have been installed more than a billion times by users across the world. By adding support for x86 based devices, our developers will be able to reach out to even more users, thereby making their applications succeed in this highly fragmented space.

Recipe for a Mixed App with Starling and Away3D

In my first attempt to add 3D to my Starling app I struggled with many problems that seemed trivial. I used Starling for a few good years and consider it one of the most powerful 2D frameworks in the industry. Coupled with the Feathers UI library its a winning stack, and it has a vibrant community that provides excellent support.

Hilomi

Hilomi is a colorful game with an original gameplay premise: reshaping the environment to help Hilomi make her way through the levels. It challenges the player’s creativity in a unique way, asking him/her to plan ahead and think outside the box to successfully complete the levels, which makes it an interesting take on the puzzle game genre.

Made with Adobe AIR and Starling for iOS & Android.

Pierrick Lété:

We are pretty happy with the launch of our game Hilomi :)

The game is featured by Apple in the “Best New Games” section of the App Store in 123 countries (unfortunately not the US) including UK, Australia, France or Germany.

We have passed the 100K game downloads mark since yesterday.
