BlackBerry Ends Adobe AIR Support

One of the attractions to develop applications for BlackBerry was there leading edge support for Adobe AIR.  Adobe AIR is a platform neutral way to develop mobile apps across multiple vendor devices.  We were a leading contributor to this effort.  It is sad to report that BlackBerry will no longer support applications built on Adobe AIR after the release of 10.3 of the BB10 OS.  So after the release, our apps will no longer be available and we assume runnable on the device.  There is nothing we can do about this decision from BlackBerry.  We don’t know the details why the decision was made.  We apologize to our loyal users that contributed and appreciated our apps thru the years.  You may share your frustration with BlackBerry if you like.

Thank you again.
