Although Flash is having a hard time I was thinking more of using AIR,
which I think has more life left in it.

The thing is, I have no idea how active developers are with app's
delivered via AIR.
Are there many AIR app's being produced?

RE: [Flashcoders] AIR native extension - Windows debugging

AIR app installs cross a billion - April 2014
 now powers almost a hundred thousand unique applications on desktops and 
mobile devices.

http://blogs.adobe.com/flashplayer/2014/04/air-app-installs-cross-a-billion.html

It's such a great platform still - I've been using it to make ios apps with 
good results. The weakness is how it is perceived. But clients do smile at the 
reduced developer costs and its great capabilities. If only adobe would hire an 
a-list PR firm to change the perception to match the reality.
