Flash Builder was initially not suited for mobile development. Components, such as the DataGrid or the Chart, were too complex and too large for the memory footprint.

Some work has been done from the ground up to optimize the framework with Flex Hero. Some components were rewritten to be mobile-optimized. The mobile theme, used when the MobileApplication tag is detected, has larger, touch-friendly controls, including for scroll bars.

The ViewNavigator helps in the development and management of screens and offers transition animations. The TabNavigator is used for subnavigation. The ActionBar is used for global navigation and messaging.

Using ActionScript and bitmaps is recommended over MXML and FXG at runtime.
