1. You need to install the air and then your application in order to work on 
phone. Air you can download from the market If i remember correctly.
2. I developed and deployed used Flash CS5. Check the adobe labs there are lots 
of air for android stuff there. It probably tell you how to do it step by step.
3. Have no idea never used Java on Android, but again check the labs there is 
documentation there.

Subject: [flexcoders] couple questions about android / air

I have been trying to code an android app in java and decided to take a look at 
air; I've read some things and need to be clarified about a few items:

1) does the android phone need to have some sort of 'air' installed on it?  It 
seems as if compiling makes a regular .apk but I've also read that there was 
something necessary on a phone...

2) Flex 4 can or can't create the necessary projects? Awhile back it was 
necessary to start with a flash project but unsure where that stands now.

3) does an android / air app have all the same framework intents that a java 
would? For example, I'm dealing specifically with something that works with 
Alarm Manager; I'd normally set up an intent that would repond to my 
Alarmmanager setup, and it would respond when fired; air projects work the same 

Appreciate any quick answers; as these things sometimes go am under the gun 
multiple projects.
