The support enables developers to create apps for a variety of popular devices and platforms without needing to recode large amounts of the software.

Developers can now use the Adobe Flash Builder platform to develop applications for iOS devices, such as Apple's iPad and iPhone, as well as for the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
