Adobe AIR cross-platform inspiration:
SimsUshare is the first mobile app in the world that lets you take your own photos and enhance them with sequenced animations such as smoke, fire, and explosions, or other simulated effects, to make realistic simulations for training or pre-planning potential emergency incidents.
This tool is for emergency responders, safety instructors, and disaster-response/business-continuity planners who want an effective way to incorporate simulations based on local hazards and situations. One can exchange the simulations with colleagues who also have SimsUshare for other platforms.
App is getting a great reception from the fire training community, recently featured on Apple article.
- The core app (about 95%) is exactly the same across Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. I made a simple licensing engine for the Win/Mac version which also has in-app purchase capabilities (but not used yet)
- I use Adobe Flash Professional CS5 and CS6 to build the effects/plug-in’s
- I use Powerflasher’s FDT to develop the application
- Has an API for people who want to develop their own plug-in/effects, but the API is not published yet – contact me if anyone is interested
- Uses regular display list, not Stage3D
- Uses the Screencast ANE from DiaDraw for iOS video recording
- MadComponents (from Daniel Freeman)
- AdMob ANE from Milkman Games
- GTween (from Grant Skinner)
- My own interface components
- iOS: Native alert ANE
