Top reasons to upgrade to Adobe® Flash® Professional CS5.5
Expanded platform and device support—Reach audiences on the latest Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR® runtimes and on Android,™ and Apple iOS devices.
Efficient workflows for mobile development—Manage FLA project files that target multiple devices. Share code and assets across documents and device targets to efficiently create, test, package, and deploy content for a wide range of screens and devices.
Content scaling when resizing stage—Quickly optimize content for different screen sizes with a new option that scales artwork and symbols automatically when you change the size of the stage.
Enhanced layer controls—Copy and paste layers, while preserving document structure, across multiple files and projects.
Symbol rasterization—Use new options to easily export content as bitmaps, which help enhance performance of your mobile content.
