Install Adobe AIR for Android Now

Adobe AIR was released to developers back in May, and since then we have seen a few pretty darn cool examples of  just what it can do.  AIR allows for cross platform communication between devices, which can create some compelling applications such as a multiplayer version of Asteroids where your phone becomes the controller and a computer outputs all the action onto a much bigger screen than your handset.

If you want to get a taste of an early build of the AIR application, Droid-Life got a hold of the file that can be installed onto Android 2.1 and 2.2 devices. Get the download below and install as you would any other third party app. This is by no means a final release, so it isn’t guaranteed to work 100 percent, but it should give you an idea of what to expect once it AIR is released officially.

    Nice!

    Is there something special about AIR in regards to cross platform communication? This is not normally something difficult. You use a web service or for something realtime open a socket. I’d hate new devs to think they NEED this to build cross platform applications.

    This is the app I need to see going to Android, after this I can see Zinio coming over so I can read my mags everywhere…

    good news for developers

    So would this let you install any old adobe air powered app? Such as seesmic (yeah, I know, but it’s an example)?

    “Adobe AIR could not be viewed. Free up some space on your phone and try again”
    ….. yet I have 23mb internal storage available. Anyone else having problems?

  • k

    does this work for the legend?

  • Dave

    I’m not sure if this is a stupid question or not, but is it feasible that this will be available for the G1, Android 1.6?

  • Cincybearcatfan

    I am also having the “Adobe Air could not be viewed.” error with TONS of space on my card. What gives?

    Yup- having the same problem with not bing able to get it to run

  • Dignan17

    Why the urgent headline? “Install this NOW!” Why? You make no compelling case to do so. I’d rather not have another platform on my phone, and I avoid Adobe Air on my computer too. It’s annoying.

    Besides, I’m not downloading any more Adobe apps until they can get the damn sizes down. Sheesh! Reader is like 10MB and I think Flash is something like 15MB. Thank goodness I can move some apps to SD now…

    idk why everyone is like going on about this its air its cool install it but not now when its done so there are some good things come out for it there are probably going to be some pretty good games coming out for this

  • Eddie Android

    Ok I installed both files but how do you use/open them?

  • david

    I only installed the adobe air .apk so far, but before I go any further will this beta version have any adverse effect when the android 2.2 arrives OTA for my moto DROID? 2.2 will have flash 10.1 and I don’t want any issues.

  • Matt

    had to uninstall a ton of apps to get this on, it takes about 22mb but i seemed to need more space than that. It works, the apps are rubbish but overall pretty happy about this…. just need 2.2 on desire now, come on htc!

  • Testor

    Who is Kevin Krause? And why didn’t he tell this community that AIR requires (eg MUST HAVE) Android 2.1 or HIGHER!!!

    Also, there is some (not much) memory for AIR!!!

    Then, there is a REQUIREMENT for space to contain the AIR apps you select.

    Then, AIR becomes compelling.

    did megaupload censored the content?
    its not avaiable!

    Having AIR on Android is going to really increase the options for developers and that means more apps for users
