Porting PlayBook AIR Apps to BB10

How do we port a PlayBook AIR Apps created using FB 4.6 to BB10 Apps?


Also, can we use FB 4.6 to develop for BB10?

Re: Porting PlayBook AIR Apps to BB10

You can modify AIR apps to work just fine on BB10, but there's a different forum for that: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Adobe-AIR-Development/bd-p/tablet


If you want to use Cascades, then you'll be writing in C++ and/or JavaScript with QML (or conceivably in Haskell via Haskad.es or Python via BBPy or BBTart). In that case you would have to port the code in the sense of rewriting all your source code in a different language, and with different UI components.  You wouldn't use FB either, since that's (I believe) solely for Flash/AIR development. (Isn't it?)
