Hundreds of them are already available on Android Market and Apple’s App Store today. In addition to AIR 2.5, Adobe unveiled Adobe InMarket™ today, a new service that allows developers to easily distribute and sell their applications on app stores across different device types from Acer, Intel, and others. Adobe InMarket operates seamlessly in the background and allows end users to download applications directly from the storefront.
