Adobe AIR allows developers to use familiar tools such as Adobe Dreamweaver, Flash Builder, Flash Catalyst, Flash Professional, or any text editor to build their applications and easily deliver a single application installer that works across operating systems.
Adobe AIR runs on Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS, and BlackBerry Tablet OS and powers millions of browser games and over 50,000 mobile games. Notable applications built with Adobe AIR include eBay Desktop, Pandora One desktop, TweetDeck, the former Adobe Media Player, Angry Birds, and Machinarium, among other multimedia and task management applications.
As of June 2019, Adobe has announced that HARMAN (a wholly‐owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Adobe AIR partner) will handle platform support and feature development for AIR. Support for AIR has been discontinued by Adobe on the end of 2020, and will be managed by HARMAN.
