The distributable player provides new delivery and monetization options for Flash technology-based mobile applications
Adobe Systems has introduced version 3.1 of its Flash Lite Distributable Player, a new over-the-air mobile runtime.
According to the company, the new player enables developers and content providers to create Flash technology-based applications that target the latest version of the runtime, and directly distribute their applications with the runtime installer to millions of open OS devices for a better on-device user experience. The Distributable Player initially supports Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile devices.
Adobe said that Flash Lite 3.1 Distributable Player provides new delivery and monetization options for Flash technology-based mobile applications. Using the new runtime, aggregators enable content creators to deliver their applications to mobile users via their web catalogs. Content creators can also choose to distribute their applications via their own promotional vehicles or existing distribution channels. The Distributable Player supports over-the-air downloads for consumers in the US, UK, Spain, Italy and India.
David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president of the platform business unit at Adobe, said: The Distributable Player enables a direct distribution of our mobile player similar to the distribution model for Flash Player on the desktop. With this new runtime and Adobe’s popular authoring tools, Adobe Flash platform developers can unleash their creativity, develop new, innovative games and other mobile applications, and reach a much broader audience across screens and different platforms.
