In this course, author Todd Perkins demonstrates key changes in the CS5.5 release of Adobe's interactive design and animation software. This course covers workflow improvements, enhanced ActionScript features (including new code snippets for AIR and several mobile frameworks), file optimization techniques, and extended support for Android and iOS app development in AIR.
Flash CS5.5 has built-in support to create applications for Android. If you change your Player version to AIR for Android and click the Edit application settings button in the Properties panel, you can control your settings for your Android application just like you could for an iOS application. One significant difference is that in the Deployment tab you can choose to get a different AIR runtime for Google Android or the Amazon Appstore.
I'll cancel out of this. And one more significant feature in AIR for Android is if you go to Debug, under Debug Movie you'll see on Device via USB. So you can simply plug in your Android device with a USB for testing and test it directly from Flash. So in Flash CS5.5 you get native support for creating Android applications and you get new features like exporting to the Amazon Appstore and debugging on a USB device.
