Adobe has issued the following press release, verbatim:
Thank you for using Adobe InMarket. After reviewing our efforts and based on feedback from developers, we have decided that we will deliver the most value by helping developers author and publish their apps on multiple platforms. Given this focus, we have decided to discontinue development and support of Adobe InMarket. We are going to continue to provide support for publishing to different app stores through our tooling. The recent Flash Builder 4.5 and Flash Professional CS5.5 provide support for publishing to multiple mobile platforms including Android and Apple iOS devices.
Given this shift, we are not accepting any new applications through Adobe InMarket. If you have published applications on Intel AppUp center, Intel should send you login credentials to the Intel AppUp developer program by August 31, 2011. This should let you manage your applications and view data associated with your applications published on Intel AppUp.
After August 31, 2011, you will not be able to login to the Adobe InMarket portal. Please download any analytics before this date including revenue reports you wish to keep for your use as all data associated with InMarket will be inaccessible to you after this date.
Concurrent with this change to InMarket, we are also closing Adobe AIR Marketplace. When we established Adobe AIR Marketplace three years ago, there were few distribution opportunities for AIR developers. There are now several app stores on desktops, mobile devices and tablets that service AIR developers including Apple App Store, Android Market, BlackBerry App World, Intel AppUp center, Samsung Apps, and Toshiba App Place. We encourage you to use these newer popular app stores to distribute your applications.
As before, Adobe will continue to provide the best technologies and solutions so that developers and publishers can create, distribute and monetize content.
