Adobe shuts down AIR Marketplace and InMarket

Adobe has decided to close the doors of both InMarket and the Adobe AIR Marketplace.

“After reviewing our efforts and based on feedback from developers, we have decided that we will deliver the most value by helping developers author and publish their apps on multiple platforms. Given this focus, we have decided to discontinue development and support of Adobe InMarket. We are going to continue to provide support for publishing to different app stores through our tooling. The recent Flash Builder 4.5 and Flash Professional CS5.5 provide support for publishing to multiple mobile platforms including Android and Apple iOS devices.”

According to ReadWriteWeb:

“Developers have until August 31st to download their app analytics, revenue reports and other data, and update any widgets or links to their app’s webpage. Developers who published to AppUp will receive an email from Intel over the next few days with more details about direct publishing.”

Unfortunately, I have noticed at least one site claim this to be “another win for Apple” (undoubtedly from a fanboy). I’m not sure I understand how much Apple has to gain over this decision or whether they were aware such a marketplace ever existed.

This sounds more like Adobe is giving the nod to the more popular app-stores that have already defined their place in the world of commerce, namely the Apple App Store, Android Market, BlackBerry App World, Intel AppUp center, Samsung Apps, and Toshiba App Place.

    Agree with you on the inanity. InMarket was a way to bridge various device-specific stores, “submit once publish everywhere”. It was an investment when no one was sure how multiple app stores would interwork. Now we know that most people (luckily) do find it practical to submit to different stores directly. Lots of the Apple fansites drew conclusions before knowing what it was, just relying on what their friends told them. Nutty.

    One of many disadvantages from the popular Alexandrite laser
    beam is the fact that it works best only with those individuals which have dark hair colour and light skin colors.

    By gejtly exfoliating the surface over a series of weekly sessions, years of dull build up
    wkll be whisked away revealing a more beautiful you.
