5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Sept. 7 2011
By David Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an advanced Flash Programmer who is at a beginning skill level for Mobile development. I've attended several trade shows this year, as well as purchased dozens of books. This book by far is the very best book I've found for the beginner, to intermediate with Flash Mobile programming. The author explains very clearly the process on both the iOS and Android platform. I'm fairly familiar with the iOS process, however this book walks you through in such an easy manor, it cleared up a lot of questions I had about the steps I simply took because I knew I had to. Very informative book, well written and I would highly recommend. If you have been programming Mobile apps for a while, the introduction to the platforms may seem old news to you, however I feel you will still have much to learn from the book in regards to how to use Flash (as well as now to NOT use Flash) in your Mobile apps.

The book arrived on time and in excellent condition. The book itself is wonderful. It has a lot of explanations about the differences between Flash Mobile components for the Android and iPhone. Recommended Reading for anyone wanting to do Mobile development on both devices.
