Apache
Apache Flex is an open-source SDK used to make rich Internet applications. It's developed with Action Script and MXML and works particularly well with Android and iOS ecosystems. Any flash-based application framework, such as Eclipse or the Flash above Builder, can be used to implement this. Free is best for mobile app developers, but suppose you have concerns, and consider Apache Flex's development team welcomes any questions via email.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • Positive: Easy to learn if you already knew AS.
  • Negative: Too heavy on flash knowledge (I know it's contradictory, but it was a plus & a minus).
  • ROI was great since it saves time on multiple devices compiling.
