If you are looking for Adobe AIR, you have come to the right place. We explain what Adobe AIR is and point you to the official download.
What is Adobe AIR?
Adobe AIR stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime. It is a runtime environment developed by Adobe Systems specifically to create rich Internet applications (RIA) using Flash, HTML, Ajax and similar applications. It is cross-platform, meaning it runs on a variety of computer systems, including OS versions for mobile devices, such as BlackBerry OS and Android.
The Adobe AIR system aims to provide a single, unified solution where developers and programmers can let users experience their content through a variety of applications, on a wide selection of platforms – Computers, mobile phones and devices and even televisions. AIR was first made available for testing in 2007, then code named Apollo, with the first version being released on February 2008.
Simply put, the Adobe AIR is a sort of a plugin to an operating system, enabling your computer, or any applicable device, to play and view content and applications built for the AIR runtime. This is similar to a Flash Player plugin. You can only view streaming videos or play Facebook games, for example, when the Flash Player plugin is installed. The main advantage of Adobe AIR is that content can be shared and disseminated through a variety of platforms, instead of writing content specifically for each platform.
