London Travel live helps you reach your destination, whether you’re travelling on the bus or the London Underground,this app can smooth your journey.
From App Developers:
We pushed out an app to the market (both Android and iPhone) to help Londoners (both tourists and locals) travel in and around the city. It displays realtime information about public transport available. Again its built on AIR 3.6 and uses MAPQUEST for map data and other sources for different pieces of data.
The current version doesn’t use either the Feathers or Starling, but plans are there to migrate to it in the future release to take advantage of the GPU acceleration.
Dynamic Texture Atlas for Starling
“This tool will convert any MovieClip containing Other MovieClips, Sprites or Graphics into a starling Texture Atlas, all in runtime. By using it, you won’t have to statically create your spritesheets. Just take a regular MovieClip containing all the display objects you wish to put into your Atlas, and convert everything from vectors to bitmap textures. This extension could save you a lot of time specially if you’ll be coding mobile apps with the starling framework.”
The Mozilla Firefox extension GPU Accelerated Flash Player has been designed to solve issues with lags, slow downs and stuttering when Flash Player is used in the browser.
Basically, what it does is enable GPU acceleration so that the video card is being used to accelerate playback of contents in Firefox.
