Nerd Alert! Adobe To Bring Apple FaceTime-Like App To Android



Now that they're no longer buddy-buddy with Apple, Adobe has apparently set its sights on the Android platform by developing a FaceTime-like video-calling program for phones running the Google OS. The new "FlashTime" app is based on Adobe Air 2.5, which is said to be equal to its desktop Flash brethren. Air 2.5 will give the Flash-based app access to the phone's microphone and video camera, and will be easily portable to other operating systems. Yeah, there are other programs for Android that already do this, but we have a feeling Adobe's gonna put a little extra spit-shine on this one. [Engadget]
