Build cross platform mobile application using Adobe Flash Builder

Recently I had attended a workshop from Adobe conducted at VIVANTA Trivandrum. The workshop all about Adobe & Mobile. On the occasion Adobe has nicely introduced Adobe Flash Builder with us. The introduction took around two hours though it is very interesting.

Whats new in Abode flash builder 4.5

Adobe Flash Builder Helps to develop cross platform mobile applications in a very productive way. You can use Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 software to build mobile Flex or ActionScript applications for leading mobile platforms using a common codebase. (windows phone doesn’t support for now). Using Abode flash builder helps to write code once and run the application anywhere in the popular mobile platforms. Built in testing tool help to build higher performing applications. Once you wrote the code, you can test it on the IDE itself or on the real phone or both.

The interesting thing is that we can edit the look and feel of the application using CSS3 (style sheet) and they have been supporting around 25 languages (including RTL support) for better comparability. Checkout the features of flash builder from adobe itself. (http://www.adobe.com/products/flash-builder/features.html)
