Adobe Air as a Android App building Platform

Adobe air runs HTML, Javascript, Adobe flash software and AS3 without the constraints of a browser. This means more experimentation for the app designer. It supports android (what I want to design for), blackberry and IOS.

I found this helpful article in Web designer magazine that focuses on creating layouts for apps. I found it really useful as it goes through the code in detail of how to generate search capabilities, which may be helpful for art education based art apps. Within Adobe air you can create a 'project skeleton', where you can define basic for the mobile app layout. Adobe air also has a device simulator to test horizontal and vertical displays.
