Adobe AIR Developers: Recompile your apps with SDK 3.9 for iOS 7

16 Sep

A bug cropped up in iOS 7 that appears to affect any AIR app that uses sound.  The bug pops up a dialog box requesting microphone permission the first time your app is run under iOS 7 (even if your app does not use the microphone).  After a user clicks “Don’t Allow” or “OK” it will not re-appear- but this unexpected dialog box can be off-putting to anyone using your app under iOS 7.

I submitted a bug for this and Adobe fixed the issue in SDK 3.9 (beta):

Recompiling your app against AIR SDK 3.9 should address this issue.  You can find the latest AIR SDK here:
