IOS and Playbook support added to Adobe Flash Builder

Support already exists to allow developers to build apps for Android in Adobe Flash Builder version 4.5 back in April but now 4.5.1 has been released which allows the development for iOS devices, such as the iPad and iPhone, as well as the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The result, app writers can quickly build and distribute apps through each of the relevant App Stores using “one tool, one framework, one code base”—a first for developers!
Developers can build applications for the desktop, web and mobile platforms and deploy them using Adobe AIR software. Adobe predicts that over 200 million mobile devices will support AIR applications by the end of 2011.
Adobe Flash Builder 4.5.1 can be downloaded as a stand-alone product or as part of the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium or Master Collections.
