Re: Frustrating..............

Platform choice is available here

the ones with the 'PlayBook' icon are the ones that the PlayBook supports. There are really 4:

android (via the Android runtime player)

Which platform you choose is based on your skillset, comfort level and what you are trying to achieve.

For example, if you are a games developer and make heavy use of OpenGL, the native SDK would likely be the best choice

Re: Frustrating..............

If you are familer with Adobe Air then AIR is a good option. If you are a android developer then android is good option.

If you are a web developer then Web is a good option. If you are more familer with OPEN GL and C then native is right chooice for you. 

If you are novice to C or open GL then native is lite bit difficult.
