I have experience in Flex and Flash and have used AS3 to produce web page elements and sites, and Flex to produce RIAs. I'm just beginning to learn mobile app design and have begun some Adobe, Apple, JDK and Lynda tutorials. Which have led me to this question:
Q1: Why use FB over Eclipse or XTools or anything else? What are the advantages/disadvantages vs the other platforms?
Q2: I understand that iOS does not require a separate installation of AIR to run FB apps, but that the Android does. Is this correct?
