    Purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1" for my wife to use at work. She is a speech teacher and was going to use the speech apps on google play for her students. Well now Samsung said that we could use google play apps and android apps but that is not true. Am not able to download Adobe air so that the speech apps can work. None of the apps work without adobe air and adobe air will not download to her tablet. Now we are stuck with the worthless tablet cuz Adobe does not want to fix the problem so that it runs on the tablet. It is not a cheep tablet and it is good for everything else and just as good as the ipad with the exception of this issue. We need Adobe air to fix the problem so that it runs on Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1"!!!! Adobe fix this problem please and soon!!!!!

    Here's a theory for you. Kevin Lynch, the former CTO of Adobe, left the company on March 19th, 2013 to go work for Apple. He still has a lot of influence at Adobe, and he is now being paid a large sum by Apple to do anything he can to prevent Adobe from building x86 Android support. The reason is simple: Broken apps reduce the overall value of the Android app market, which is exactly what Apple wants. They WANT broken Android apps watering down the Android app market. They WANT us, the developers, to be angry about Android fragmentation, and to only commit to iOS out of sheer frustration. This is part of Apple's never-ending "thermonuclear war" against Android, and WE ARE BEING USED AS PAWNS. This is also why Adobe employees aren't allowed to touch this subject with a ten foot pole. Notice how when Adobe employees do comment here, they pretend they didn't even understand the question? It's because if they address the actual question, they will be fired, since they have been instructed from the top to never discuss this subject, EVER. So bend over guys, and keep paying that monthly Creative Cloud fee, for a broken product that was intentionally crippled as part of a platform war.

    The tablets with Intel processors are rapidly expanding. Adobe should really consider releasing a x86 compatible AIR version.

  • gjiorkvak

    We need a support for x86 architecture. we don't care about the filtering issue.
    personally i use a razr i and i don't have the filtering issue but filtering issue or not.
    The x86 architecture gain more market part each day and you doing nothing about that.

    I think the forum is right : AIR is dead and totally obsolete. The team is only here to make minor security update and pretend trying to improve AIR by hiding the software for devices that do not work.

    Here's what Pahup ( Adobe Air Staff ) said about this issue in March 2014 - see below

    Pahup seems to be saying that this is a filtering issue. Perhaps he thinks all would be okay if our apps were simply not visible to Samsung Tablets with Intel chips in google play.

    This is of course a a little lame given that Samsung tablets are market leaders and their numbers are growing fast. We simply need to offer our apps all android customers - that's what Adobe promised and it's why we chose Flash Builder / Air.

    Perhaps I'm wrong and Pahup and the Air team are working on this ? - I hope so . Please let us know.

    8. Pahup, Mar 17, 2014 11:37 PM in reply to MJD1981 Report

    Hi All,

    Thanks for reporting the issue. Adobe AIR Runtime and applications built using AIR are ARMv7 based binaries and every Android device should honor the Filters on Google play including application architecture. For example – Lava Xolo, which is an Intel device doesn’t show up Adobe AIR and AIR based applications in Google Play. However, it looks like Intel based Samsung Tab 3 doesn’t respect this filtering and the AIR application experiences performance related issues on execution. By the time, we investigate the issue, developers are suggested to try out the capabilities based device filtering on their Google Developer console to exclude a particular device. Please follow Capabilities targeting section @ http://developer.android.com/distribute/googleplay/about/distribution. html


    Thanks

    Hey Adobe, how about a real response? We asked: WILL YOU IMPLEMENT SUPPORT FOR x86 OR NOT? Telling us to go to the "Google Developer console to exclude a particular device" is not an answer to our question... it's just a slap in our face!

    We've had trouble trying to embed the AIR runtime into the APK - just seeing the app freeze up where it otherwise works on other tablets without the runtime. Will investigate later in more detail - but just saying, it's not necessary as easy as some people are saying it is.

  • Raducuzzz

    10:25:48 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 27, 2014

    @idsl, it's very easy to embed the AIR runtime inside the apk. If you're targeting AIR 3.8 or above I believe it's mandatory, it does it for you.

    Including the AIR runtime in the apk will increase the apk size by about 10MB, though. If your objective is to have a light weight app then you have a problem.

  • idsl

    9:28:24 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 27, 2014

    @Raducuzzz, thanx it's clear indeed!
    Will send you an email to check your game most likely next week when I get our tablets back. In our case, we don't need a big performance... Is it complicated to embed Adobe AIR when I work from a Flash Adobe for Android file? I have never done this before, I just publish the .apk and install it on the tablet, it is just for testing.

  • Raducuzzz

    9:04:53 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 21, 2014

    @idsl, I am trying to understand the same thing. To figure that out, I want to understand how both devices work with games created with Adobe AIR. Usually games created with AIR are published with the AIR runtime embedded in them. That means it won't be a problem if the device does not have AIR installed as long as performance is ok. Games WITHOUT the AIR runtime embedded will require AIR installed separately which in your case is a problem on one of the tablets.

    So if the performance is good enough that means your tablet will be able to play AIR apps that have the runtime embedded and the problem remains for the apps where the runtime is NOT embedded.

    If performance is bad on both tablets then I guess there is no point in trying the embed option because it won't help too much and we'll probably have to wait for Adobe to do something.

    Hope everything is clear.

    For everyone, I asked Samsung Support Center if there is a difference of intel chipset between our two Samsung Tabs 3 10.1 because one of the two tablets works with Adobe Air and they told me they are both equipped with Intel Atom Z2560 (note: I gave them the serial numbers of each tablet).
    I'm really confused now. Do we have the only Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1" on which Adobe Air works or is there something else?

    @Raducuzzz. Thanks for your reply, I have one question. My point is trying to understand why Adobe Air works and can be installed on one of our Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1" and cannot even be installed on the other one. I know the answer I read here is the intel chipset but it cannot be, the other tablet also has the same chipset and works ?! I don't mind testing your game but how will that help to find out what is going on? Many thx.

  • Raducuzzz

    7:51:02 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 21, 2014

    @idsl, thank you. The game was created with Adobe AIR so it's good to know it runs ok (even though not very smooth) on both devices. To really figure out the difference in performance between Tab 3 10" and other tablets that are ARM based I guess you should try the same game on an ARM device and compare (if you have any).

    If you wouldn't mind, please send me an email to alphadesign2k5 at yahoo.co.uk and I will send you an apk for a game that I am working on to see what kind of performance you get.

  • idsl

    7:36:52 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 21, 2014

    @Raducuzz
    I have installed the game on both tablets successfully. They run ok on both, not very smooth but ok and honestly not much difference between the two. does that help? :(

  • Raducuzzz

    12:58:59 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 18, 2014

    An example of a game with the AIR runtime embedded is "Jigsaw Puzzles Saga". You can try to install that and see if it works. Also notice how smooth the game is on both devices and report back. Thanks!

  • idsl

    10:11:54 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 18, 2014

    @Raducuzzz
    mmm I don't know how to install an AIR app with the AIR runtime embedded, I prototype interfaces using Adobe Air and .apk files. I could try if you tell me how to test this? As for your questions about games, I haven't tried. Do you have an example I could try?

  • Raducuzzz

    9:59:50 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 18, 2014

    @idsl
    Can you install AIR applications with the AIR runtime embedded on the tab where you can't install AIR as a separate application?
    And how is performance with games developed in AIR on that tab where you could install Adobe AIR?

  • idsl

    9:48:28 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 18, 2014

    Thanks for your reply Pahup.
    @hudson42
    The only difference between the two tabs I can see is the Kernel version and build number. To recap, I have 1 Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 with Adobe Air working properly and 1 Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 on which I cannot even install Adobe Air. From what I read in this thread, none of them should work with Adobe Air!
    So I have asked Samsung to give me Intel chipset types for both tab to understand if it comes from that.
    Otherwise I don't understand why it works on our older intel-based Tab 3 10.1!!??
    I'll let you know what they reply.

    Wow, thanks for the news Flexicious!
    Totally agree with you, the lack of x86 support really is the last coffin nail for AIR. Don't get me wrong, I was totally in favour of AIR till this issue came up, but given that without proper x86 support AIR basically renders itself as a native iOS alternative only, you might just as well do native iOS in the first place! I mean what kind of cross platform solution is it that does support a single platform only? We can't possibly tell our customers that we support Android with this in mind!

    Sorry Adobe, but without any assurance that x86 will be supported in the (very) near future, this will be it.
    So, what's what?

    Desperately looking for viable alternatives for business apps here! If anyone has got a sound solution, please let me (us) know!

  • Flexicious

    2:10:24 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 14, 2014

    Until now, this was just Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 but this is bound to make even the most ardent Adobe Air proponents like us to reconsider : http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/tablets/3506259/nexus-8-gets-july-release-date-rumoured-specs/

    "Nexus 8 release date set for July with 64-bit Intel processor and Android 4.5"

    We, like many people on the bug base, have invested untold resources (time and money), and are having a very hard time looking to a customer and telling them that the app we developed for them wont run on all Android devices. The fact that this is Samsung (and now potentially Nexus) makes this even more acute, and we could really use some assurance from Adobe at this time.

    @hudson42
    well that is the weirdest part, both Galaxy Tab 3 tablets we have are 10.1 inch. One works perfectly with Adobe Air , the other I cannot even install it. So unless Samsung issued Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablets with different chipsets, in our case Intel is not a problem.

  • G.Makka

    7:45:43 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 13, 2014

    Come on guys is this even on your list of issues to fix.
    Some form of response would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hudson Ansley

    9:37:31 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 13, 2014

    oh (your original comment was not clear that it was a 3) that is odd... The galaxy tab 3 7 inch is arm... puzzling if the one where this is working ok is intel because that is the exact problem here. The ARM code in the air produced runtimes has to be emulated on intel chips, which is the cause of the slowdown. IMO it is a shame that Adobe dropped the shared runtime for Android when Apple dis-allowed it, that would be a great solution for any new chipset- the very same shared runtime would work well on any android system with native Air installed.

  • idsl

    9:08:31 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 13, 2014

    Thanks for the link!
    But as I said, we have another Galaxy Tab 3 with Adobe Air working perfectly on it so I am not sure it has to to do with the Intel chipset, don't you think?

  • Hudson Ansley

    7:47:00 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 13, 2014

    FYI: The Galaxy Tab 3 is the only released Samsung tablet with an Intel (x86) chipset, at least according to this wiki page:

But I also have another Samsung Galaxy Tab (that I bought two months earlier than the other that causes trouble) that is Intel based and I have NO problem installing Adobe Air and publishing on it from Flash so I don't understand why this is a problem with Intel.

  • Steve Howse

    7:20:15 AM GMT+00:00 Mar 5, 2014

    This page has been up for almost five months. In all that time, not a single word from Adobe. Why? There's no way they haven't seen it, and there's no way they missed the thousands of complaints on AIR's page in the Google Play store. Do they just silently watch and laugh at everyone's misery? The remarkable thing is they already have an x86 compatible AIR runtime; it's what their desktop version runs in. Fixing this for mobile x86 could be as simple as adding a handful of function calls in their compile process somewhere to include the code they've already written for the desktop. In five months, they couldn't bother to spend one day doing this, despite a volcanic catastrophic tsunami of complaints. Unbelievable. UNBELIEVABLE. And look at all the damage caused to their reputation, as well as to any of you developers who promised a finished product to your client, but were unable to because you were lied to by Adobe with their previous claim that AIR runs fine on all Android devices which you only discovered after you were 90% of the way into your development process. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen must have been planted there to take down the company; he should be investigated or, failing that, he should simply be ousted by the board, just to be on the safe side.

    Just for the reference... RhoMobile had the same issue, but users and developers found a workaround as stated here:

    https://github.com/rhomobile/rhodes/issues/239

    Since RhoMobile is already supporting WP7, WP8 and now Android x86, Adobe seriously risks that developers move towards Motorola solution.

    This holiday season brought the Samsung Tab 3 in user's hands which lacks support for Adobe AIR. Most of my game's installs from Google Play come from this device and I am getting a lot of negative ratings because this device is extremely slow when running AIR games. Also, the Adobe AIR app from Google Play can't be installed on this device because it's not compatible.

    If Adobe AIR won't be supported on Android x86 devices soon we will be forced to stop development in AIR and move to other platforms / programming languages.

    Proper Intel x86 support for AIR on Android is essential; please fix

  • KLHulett2855

    8:04:38 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 21, 2014

    I know it is impossible to cover every hardware combo, but not Intel on Samsung mobile devices?
    I can't imagine Intel and Samsung as marginal players in the tech world.
    You got to keep up to survive.

    As a developer, I don't want to isolate what could be a large segment of users.
    As a Tab3 user, I want AIR to work on it.

    This is absolutely necessary, we can't say AIR supports releasing on Android if a large segment of devices can't use the apps (and the segment is constantly growing, more x86 tablets are coming this summer). If x86 support isn't added, Adobe AIR will quickly become obsolete for cross-platform app development.

    Even if only 1 in 20 is having a bad experience it can kill a project / app.

    The appeal of Air as a platform is that you can theoretically build one and deploy in many places. Allowing fragmentation to double that appeal hurts Air, Adobe, and developers.

    Multiple applications that I wish to run, that I do run on other android devices, depend on Air. With you already having abandoned us mobile users with no flash support, it is ultimately frustrating and discouraging to have just purchased my ipad replacement (Galaxy Tab 3 10.1) to find that my apps will not work. This has been ongoing now for nearly 6 months. You're not even trying.

  • alexey_o

    10:00:14 PM GMT+00:00 Mar 28, 2014

    We have a client that decided to purchase several dozen Intel-based Samsung Tab 3's for the AIR app that we built for them - everyone assumed that our app would work as it does on all of our other devices. Now they are having to return/exchange all the tablets :(. They are doing this in another country, where this is proving to be extremely costly. Please make AIR compatible with Intel-based processors!

    Having AIR work across Android is key.

    Intel is making an aggressive move into the Android space and hardware makers are starting to produce Intel based tablets. Our AIR based apps run so slowly on the Intel chipset that they're essentially unusable. And it seems that every new hardware partner we speak to is launching an Intel-based tablet in 2014. We all stand to lose if Adobe doesn't support (or provide a workaround for) the Intel instruction set on Android.

    This is becoming more and more of a problem as we see manufacturerers going with an x86 architecture.

    Intel processors are starting to gain market. The Samsung Tab 3 was the most popular device this holiday season and Adobe AIR is not compatible with those devices. This translates to bad ratings and smaller mobile coverage. Wasn't AIR supposed to be multi-platform?

    Our AIR App is not running on the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. This is a huge problem for us, because so far we recommended samsungs tablets.

    If AIR wants to support Android, it should support it all.

    It would be nice to be able to write your app in actionscript and deploy to many device that was the original goal of AIR.
    Has Adobe abandoned the Flash platform altogether?

    All it takes is one holiday season with successful marketing campaign by Intel & device manufacturer and Google Play is filled with 1-star ratings and the experience is ruined for everyone.

    how can adobe claim to be cross platform without including all of Android? (and for that matter windows 8 phone). This is a MUST HAVE! please adobe do this now!

    Very important issue for us since the Galaxy Tab 3 intel device is out.

    We need it too.
    If the trend is to have tablets with Android x86 (Intel), i think it is important to follow this trend.

    Same for us, we need to support most of devices, including android X86.

    Another vote to fix this. We are currently developing AIR applications for mobile / tablet and want to ensure that our applications will run on the Intel devices.

    Yes we want native integration to Android x86. For example, we are suffering from lack of performance on Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1", in both execution and video rendering and video latency like shown in this bug: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3648268. With native x86 integration we believe that these performance issues will go away.
