Hello, I have used AS3 in the early 2000's - 2010 and have taken a break for almost a decade. I am interested in teaching a class around 2Dgames and Animate is an option. The question I have concerns the workflow for publishing an AS3 project to AIR for IOS.

Is it realistic to code a simple 2D game in Animate and expect to be able to play it on an iPad?

I am not interested in being limited by HTML5 Canvas and working with javaScript, rather I would like to work within the Animate UI and code with AS3 and then export the project as an app that can go to the iStore or Steam or something related.

I've read lots on line but am more curious about this community's thoughts as I'm assuming there are people dedicated to AS3, despite the turn of events post mobile devices.

Thanks in advance!
