I haven’t touched Flex projects in a couple of years now. Once the iPad came out all my Flex clients dropped Adobe Flash. We moved lots of code to HTML5 in the past several years.

For all that HTML5 has to offer, however, I have often missed some of the beauty found in the Flex environment. So recently when a new client asked me to take on some legacy Flex code for updates I began digging back into Flex.

To my surprise I find myself as happy as ever to code in ActionScript and Flex. I am also quite pleased to find how well the latest AIR platform supports iOS. It may just happen that my next iOS app will be written in Flex instead of in Objective-C or in HTML5 with PhoneGap.

Sounds fun!
