Now developers have one programming language that can communicate with all devices thanks to the Adobe team. Back in April the announcement of  Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 and Flex 4.5 was made, initially with Android, but that was merely the beginning. Today the floodgates have opened, updates to Flash Builder and the Flex framework supports the iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook. So what does that mean? Developers can quickly build and distribute apps through the Android Market, BlackBerry App World and Apple App Store using one tool chain, programming language and code base. Flash Platform evangelist Serge Jespers shows us what having ‘one language’ means:

Here are some of the newest apps created with Flash Builder 4.5 and Flex 4.5, developers from different fields have been busy to make delivery faster and cheaper:
