Adobe updates Flash Builder 4.5 and Flex 4.5 to support more platforms

Adobe has announced that it has updated some of its software for devs to allow the developers to use the platform for new platforms. The update is for Adobe Flash builder 4.5 and Flex 4.5. The two platforms were updated for support with Android in April of this year. The new update also allows the platforms to be used to develop for other OS' including the iPhone, iPad, and Blackberry PlayBook.

Adobe Flash 10.3 and Air both have updates in Market

It looks like Adobe hasn't wasted any time adding some fixes or updated to these two popular apps in the Android Market. Just last week Flash got updated to 10.3 and brought some welcomed changes and updates for Android 3.1 and Honeycomb tablets. This update today doesn't say much, but updates must be good right.

ViewSonic GTab update adds Flash and USB peripheral support

ViewSonic has pushed out a firmware update for the GTab, which adds Adobe Flash support among other things. The new software - available as an OTA update - also adds to the GTab's productivity abilities, as it throws USB keyboard and mouse support onto the Android slate. There's also support for an external docking station, the addition of new international cities in the Weather app, and a few new languages supported. The OTA update should be automatically offered in the notification area. Meanwhile, if you're more into raw speed then it's worth checking out the 1.4GHz/1.6GHz overclock we wrote about yesterday.

Flash Exploit can nail early versions of Android

Adobe has announced a critical vulnerability in Flash Player 10.2.153.1 and earlier versions which may, and we do underscore MAY, affect early versions of the Android OS. The vulnerability causes a crash and could also allow a savvy attacker to take control of affected systems. It is usually triggered by an infect .swf file embedded into a Microsoft Word document delivered as an email attachment. Now, granted, this is going to be rare for the Android platform but Adobe felt it important enough to mention that early versions of the Bot OS may be affected.

Photoshop Touch apps on iPad open door for similar software on Honeycomb

If you are a big user of Photoshop for designing all sorts of photos and artwork or other apps in Creative Suite you may have been following the new touch apps that Adobe has for the Apple iPad. The apps include Adobe Color Lava for Photoshop, Adobe Eazel for Photoshop and Adobe Nav for Photoshop. The three apps turn the iPad into a remote panel for Photoshop image editing and manipulation using the new touch SDK.

Adobe Gets Official with Flash Update Announcement for Honeycomb

Adobe has announced that Flash Player 10.2 will be available for download through the Android Market starting March 18th. Initially designed for Honeycomb devices, this beta release is also available as a general availability (GA) release for Android handsets using Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) as well. All Honeycomb tablets need to have Google's 3.0.1 system update as well. It will be an automatic update in conjunction with Google's first system update for Honeycomb, but Froyo and Gingerbread users will have to go out and get it when it comes on the 18th.

Motorola XOOM won’t get Flash support until Spring 2011

The Motorola XOOM may be shaping up to be the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to reach the market, but it won't be bringing all of its features from the start. According to a tiny disclaimer at the bottom of Verizon's listing for the slate, the XOOM won't have Adobe Flash support until Spring 2011. Adobe had already said that it was working on Flash Player 10.2 for Honeycomb, so it seems that Android 3.0 won't launch with Flash Player 10.1 as is available for current Android smartphones. Considering Flash support is an oft-cited advantage of Android over iOS on the iPad, that decision could well come back to haunt Adobe, Google and OEMs. [vms 3b03ae6d3f8540cd6362] [via Engadget]

Adobe: Flash 10.2 coming to Android

Adobe announced at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona today that source code for Adobe Flash 10.2 has been released to tier one developers and should make it's way to Android smartphones and tablets within the next few weeks.  That's moving at a pretty fast pace considering that 10.2 had only been launched on Windows and Mac nearly at the same time.  Adobe representatives also said that Android smartphones and tablets using dual-core processors will see the greatest benefit including HD video at 30 frames per second.
