Why choose Adobe Flash Platform for RIA development?
Posted Under: Adobe Flex and AIR
With an increasing demand for cross platform, cross device and cross browser applications, new challenges have emerged for application developers. Clients have increasing demand for applications that run seamlessly across the web, desktop & mobile device platforms. But each of these platforms support independent development environment that includes programming language, development framework, tools and deployment options adding time, cost and complexity for delivering such solutions.
Developing application over Adobe® Flash® Platform enables developers to deliver consistent application experiences across multiple browsers and operating systems. Adobe Flash Platform (Flex & Flash Builder) provides a common path to creating applications for both desktop and multiple mobile platforms, thus reducing the time and cost associated with development and testing significantly, while providing users with a consistent application experience.
With the introduction of Adobe Flex® SDK “Hero” and Adobe Flash Builder™ “Burrito,” along with the availability of the Adobe AIR® runtime on mobile devices, developers can now build mobile Flex applications for touch screen smart phones and tablets with the same ease and quality as on desktop platforms.
Adobe engineering is currently working on updating Flex, Flash Builder, and Adobe AIR to enable standalone, installed applications built with Flex to run on both the iPhone and iPad devices. Application performance and feature set are expected to be consistent across applications running on iOS, Android and Blackberry Tablet OS devices.
So, if you want your application to run on web, desktop and commonly used mobile devices while keeping your development cost as low as possible, we suggest you to choose Adobe Flash Platform for development.
