I would really like to get my AIR help on to a tablet. Is this possible if I'm creating it with Robohelp?
Welcome to the forum Josh.
Good question. When AIR Help was introduced, support was for Windows, MAC and Linux. AIR Help is an application developed using the AIR technology and it relies on the AIR Runtime. Support for the AIR Runtime Linux stopped at the 2.6 version of the runtime but AIR Help can still be run on all three platforms, subject to that limitation for Linux.
Looking now at Adobe's site there is reference to AIR applications being deployed on newer platforms such as Android. I suspect though that such AIR apps would have to be built using later versions of the AIR SDK than were available to the RoboHelp developers when they produced AIR Help. To the best of my knowledge, it has not been modified to work on Android or similar systems.
I will try to find out more and will post back with what I find.

HTML5 also supports generating a native app for android. I’ve only heard of one person who used this and I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t tell you much about it.
Here’s the link to the help topic on generating a native app: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/robohelp/robohtml/WSe887ca7d317bc0ec38aab2 53138007375b9-8000.html
