as3flobile on the iPhone

2010 September 13th by todd anderson

as3flobile is a set of ActionScript 3 components targeting the Flash Player on Mobile Devices, whether it be embedded in the browser or in an Adobe AIR application. You find out more about the project at http://github.com/bustardcelly/as3flobile.

What with the latest breaking news on rollback of restrictions for iOS application submissions, i decided to set some time to drop the as3flobile components into an AIR app and publish with the pfi. They work great and actually are quite a bit more responsive (go figure!) in regards to both animation and touch response (due to hardware i suppose).

The as3flobile project actually started out as a way to play around with Flash on the iPhone, but shifted to a suite a components targeting mobile devices that supported the Flash Player in browser (i forget why the focused changed ;) ). In any event, i just wanted to write a quick post that, yes, you can use as3flobile components in an AIR application on Android and now iOS… (well, i guess it was always possible, just never a strong possibility that anyone would be able to see it unless you added them to your provision :) ).

If you are interested, the as3flobile project is available on github, so check it out.

Here’s also a great refresher post on the PFI by Christian Cantrell.
