Use Flash Builder’s Export Release Build feature to package
and export the release build of a mobile application. A release
build is generally the final version of the application that you
want to upload to an online store like, the Android Market, Amazon
Appstore, or Apple’s App store.
When exporting an application, you can choose to install the
application on a device. If the device is connected to your computer

You can also choose to export a platform-specific application package
for later installation on a device. The resulting package can be
deployed and installed in the same way as a native application.
