Note: These AIR features are “working”, although they may not make it into the v1 product.
Note: This is not an Adobe product, but simply a feature demo that took 3 days. Any one can build P2P applications with Flash and AIR.
This week I have been working on a couple of different mini-projects to test out new beta features of AIR 2.5 for Android. The engineering team are pushing out features every week, and I have to say I’m very very impressed with their efforts. We are arguably now at feature parity with the desktop AIR releases, which is precisely the goal of the Open Screen Project.
In the 5/7 build we have added Camera, Microphone, StageWebView and NativeExtensions features to the beta. Of course AIR comes with all of the Flash Player 10.1 features along with multi-touch/gestures, support for bitmap matrix caching and Geolocation APIs in addition.
The code isn’t exactly stable so I don’t want to release it just yet. I hope I can finish it by next week, by which time it will have a name. I changed the name of this demo since it’s not an Adobe Flash Platform product, which caused some confusion. There aren’t plans currently to release this as a product, however I will publish the source code for all.
