Important News

Android AIR Runtime Play Store Availability

Adobe will be unpublishing the shared AIR Runtime from the Google Play Store for all devices running Android 4.0 or below on March 13th, 2018.  AIR applications that require the shared runtime will not be able to be able to access the required download from the Play Store from these older systems.  We recommend impacted developers convert and republish their applications to use the captive runtime before March 13th.
