Hey,

I'm really glad being able asking you both questions concerning android apps.
I had a look on the net finding tutorials about android apps and i succeeded allready a hello world :-).

My question is if it will be/is possible to make flex RIA's or applets which will be visible an fully operable on Android?
If so, how can i do this? I don't find a flash in the android store.
A second question is, how can my website providing a flex RIA know if the device is a handheld?

my sincere thanks,

Michallis

Flash is available in the Android Market for Android versions 2.2 and up.

Thanks for your answer but can it be that some android phones like a HTC wildfire won't be able to install flash?
I had those issues with some apps which were visible in the store on HTC HD desire and invisible for a HTC wildfire.

greetz,

Michallis

That's odd. I know developers can specify on which Android versions their applications can run, but the Wildfire and Desire series (including the Z and HD) currently run Android 2.2. Although the Wildfire originally came with 2.1; if the Wildfire device you used had 2.1 then perhaps the application is for 2.2 and up.
