Adobe promises console quality games on iOS with new Air 3
The new version of the development kit, in addition with Flash 11, will be able to build out some pretty good-looking games, and run rather powerful applications. I use TweetDeck on my Mac, which is built with Adobe Air, and even the popular iPad game Machinarium was created with the Air technology.
Traditionalists may scoff (and, of course, the reason Flash isn't on the iPad or iPhone is because performance still isn't where it needs to be), but truthfully, the more options developers have for making great apps on Apple's platform, the better for us users.
