We are pleased to announce that IntelliJ IDEA 12 will support new features of Adobe AIR SDK 3.4. They are designed to simplify iOS apps development process:
- Run/debug AIR applications on iOS Simulator (Mac OS X only)
- Debug iOS apps on device both over USB or network
- Single-click iOS app deployment to the device without the need to manually install it using iTunes
This feature requires AIR SDK 3.4 or higher.
Note also that Mac users shouldn’t copy AIR SDK files using Finder, because Finder replaces folders. You need to replace individual files preserving the folder structure. Instead run the following command line from Terminal:
ditto air_sdk_folder flex_sdk_folder
Make sure you have installed iTunes 10.5.0 or higher on your computer, for direct deployment to an iOS device.
You can try this feature in the latest IntelliJ IDEA 12 EAP.
