When I go to Adobe's download center I don't get an option for Android download.
So from where exactly I can download Flash player and AIR for Android ?
Yes, but how do people install Flash Player for Android when there is no such info on Download page?
How does even Adobe thinks to populate Flash Player on other platforms when you can download players only for Win, Mac, Linux, Solaris.
Hi, The Adobe Website is very extensive, not every program can be in one place. Not every mobile phone meets the system requirements, so it wouldn't be fruitful to have Flash Player in the download center. It would have to be qualified, if you have this, or if you have that, and etc. and etc. and that is what the last Adobe website link that I posted does.
Even I have to use the Search feature to find some things. As I said tho, the Manufacturer of your Android has a website and should have up to date information. Likewise your Carrier.
There is a lot of difference also between Flash Player for various computers and the mobile phones.
I know what you mean, but hear me out, why I disagree.
First of all if in Adobe's interest is to promote Flash on other platforms, if that were true then this wouldn't be an issue.
Second, Adobe has Download page, if it can have Solaris as an option, then I don't see why they can't simply add in dropdown menu one or few more platforms, so people don't have to search through the whole Adobe website. They have very easy solution for this, but they don't use it.
It's perfectly logically to think that you would find Flash player downloads for ALL platforms on its Download page.
Or separate mobile platforms from computers and then have Downloads page for Mobile.
I cant describe how angry I am with adobe now.. It is an hour I have been trying to get air for my android tablet. I know I can get it from android market but at the moment it doesnt work and I cant really understand why guys you dont simply put air for android into your site. You talk like there are hundreds platforms and it is impossible to deliver air from adobe web site for android but it doesnt make sense at all.... a software is not available in its creator web page... ridiculous.
That's what I keep saying, but people keep saying problem is in me . And this is exactly what I know is happening there is ton of people searching for this on Adobe's website and they can't find it, most people give up after short search if they can't find goodbye Adobe and their AIR or Flash for Android.
So same question is always here, how can Adobe promote something when they don't even offer it on their website? how do they even expect to gain people to use their software when Adobe is not really enthusiastic about their software... very strange policy they have...
Apps written for Android using Adobe Air, at start of installation, will most times direct the user to download the Adobe Air runtime from either the Amazon apps marketplace or the Android marketplace, depending on where the user downloaded the app. The iPhone version app will have the runtime already bundled, so there will be no need to install a separate Air runtime in most cases. Flash player is a different software together, which allows you to view and enjoy Flash sites. Flash 10 and Air for Android are two different items.
You can always go to Android market or Amazon marketplace first and install the latest Air runtime. This is only requiered once, and not for every Air app that you install. Hope this helps.
Adobe Flash Player and AIR for Android are available directly from the Android Market on supported Android devices. If you are unable to find Adobe Flash Player in the Market, the most likely reason is that your device does not meet the minimum system requirements.
Specifically, Flash Player requires a CPU with support for the ARMv7-A instruction set to achieve the level of performance required for acceptable multimedia playback.
Your device has an ARM11 CPU, which only supports the ARMv6 instruction set.
For future reference, Adobe maintains a list of devices certified to work with Adobe Flash Player and AIR here:
You might want to give Skyfire a try. It uses "remote desktop" technology to render Flash animation and video in the cloud, for devices that are incapable of processing Flash content natively:
Flash Player 11 will be supported indefinitely on Android devices. It is perfectly capable and can play all content authored for Flash player 11 and under (in other words, everything until it is possible to make Flash player 12 content- even then people can publish down, as you have always been able to do with Flash).
The player handles videos, 3D acceleration, data loading/manipulation, bitmap and vector animation, audio/mp3 playback and audio transformation- etc., etc., etc. Crowing that 'Flash is dead' on mobile seems very easy/trendy to do- but it is not true or accurate. Adobe has committed to update Flash so that it works on 'future versions' of android tablets (and Playbook).However, Flash mobile will die a slow but steady growth as developers see no point to use it and new versions of flash software comes out and will move to Air and/or HTML5.

Why not choose a ESPOW android tablet pc?
I can run all my phone apps on my tablet. So it takes up full screen which is fine since there is a button which shows the most recent apps so its very easy to switch apps running in the background. I think Flash is still very important in the tablet form factor since web browsing is the most important thing u do with tablets and u wont get a full experience not having flash.
