Adobe delivered an whopper of an update today to Adobe® Flash® Builder® 4.5 and Flex 4.5 software which provides developers with a single platform (one platform, one framework, one codebase) to build smartphone and tablet applications.
Offered standalone or as part of Creative Suite® 5.5 Web Premium and Master Collection, Flash Builder 4.5 enables the creation of applications that work seamlessly across leading mobile device platforms.
“The reaction from developers to the new mobile capabilities in Flash Builder 4.5 and the Flex 4.5 framework has been absolutely fantastic,” said Ed Rowe, vice president of developer tooling, Adobe. “They are amazed by how easy it is to create great mobile apps for Android devices, BlackBerry PlayBook, iPhone and iPad. Companies can now effectively reach their customers no matter what type of device they have.”
Many applications built with Flash Builder and Flex have already been published to the Android Market, Apple App Store, and BlackBerry App World.
