Hi All,

I want to run a flash cs5 application to run on iPad. I think we can export/publish flash files as adobe air which can be run on iPad. My question is

1) How to export flash files as adobe air files and run them on iPad ?
2) is there any limitation that we can face while running air files on iPad ?

Thanks

You'll run into memory issues and security sandbox issues. But Flash CS5 will publish to an iOS binary.

remember that you'll have to be registered as an apple developer ($100 a year) and will need to set up a certificate so you can provision your iPad temporarily with your dev build.

Adobe's got some great notes on it - they say it much better than I could:

Oh, and here are Apple's notes on getting a provisioning profile. It's a complete pain in the you-know-what, butt that's Apple for you.

... but with the flash CS5 packager you don't need to own a Mac with XCode in order to do all this stuff. Don't let Apple bully you into buying a new Mac the way I did.

But I believe you have to use Mac to publish/upload it to App store...  :(

.. not anymore. You can send the binary to Apple from your PC when you're ready to put it on the store.
