Adobe Platform Evangelist Andrew Shorten talks to Iain Dodsworth, founder of TweetDeck, about his experiences of developing this high-profile AIR application and how using Adobe technology contributed to TweetDeck’s success.
For the same reasons Iain and his team chose Adobe AIR as the platform for developing and deploying TweetDeck to their millions of customers, our RoboHelp team is betting on Adobe AIR Help as the next generation of User Assistance (i.e. Online Help).
With the launch of Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2, which includes RoboHelp 8, the ability to generate Help based on Adobe AIR, as well as the included Help systems in TCS2, which are entirely based on Adobe AIR, have been one of the highlights of this release and we are happy to see customers excited about the potential of this platform.
