    I am looking to download and use Busybee Invoicing Software but when I went to download it, I recieved several warning as the application wants to install Adobe Air.

    I am no expert, but having read a little about AIR, it seems that this is used to communicate via the internet.

    My question is, am I safe to install this or should I be wary of the software requesting access. ?

    I am a little unsure as I do not know very much about it.

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Adobe AIR is kinda of like a stand-alone version of Flash (kind of) that allows you to run AIR-based apps. Nothing really to worry about - I use it all the time for TweetDeck and Prezi Desktop.
