All I can say the Air platform cutting a lot of mambo jumbo stuff in time if you develop for mobile and if you know your way with as3.

Fact is, there is less and less Air developer’s around, aiming just into the mobile world, in my view as a freelance developer’s its a business suicide this days ,you can make the best app in the world without good expansive marketing it will be very hard for you ,go fight with 1 billion apps` :P

That is really inspiring. He makes with 2 apps more than 10k$ a week. I have 4 AIR apps that presently generate 5k$ a month. Still have a long way to go.

Nope, I do this in the evenings, on the week-ends, and during my holidays. I work full-time for the Bavarian government. In the upcoming years I would like to write a PhD thesis in London and make an MBA in California. To be able to do this independently I try to save some money with making apps using AIR .

That’s very cool. I always feel that part time is limited, but your experiences proves that it is viable :D
