Hands-on instructions for developing mobile apps with Flash

The exciting new release of Flash now gives you the capability to create native applications for Android and iPhone and this in-depth guide shows you how to do exactly that. Author Richard Wagner brings his years of Flash experience to these pages as he walks you through all the key topics related to mobile Flash app development, including multitouch events, motion sensor, accelerometer, GPS, mobile services integration, and more. You'll discover how to build an app and then install and debug it on your mobile device. In addition, you'll learn tips for migrating existing web or desktop apps to run on the Android platform and optimize your apps so that they perform on a level that you demand.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book eased some of my Android Anxiety. Nov. 9 2014
By Peter Bold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow. I needed this book. I am new at the Android market and I'm often confused by the Way things are done in the smart phone world. I'm used to being confused by other other systems. This book will answer questions and reduce frustration. Even if you never create an App, or get scarry as an amateur programmer, this book answers a load of mysterious questions.

By Tim T. Tompkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
