The day that many Flash Developers/Designers have been waiting for is finally approaching. Well…not quite exactly. Earlier this week at Adobe Max 2009, Adobe provided a sneek-peek to some of the new features that Flash CS5 will be shipping with. The one feature that is getting many excited(and for good reason) is the ability to export your Flash applications into Apple iPhone applications.
One big feature of the AIR iPhone is the ability of using Ribbit to make and receive phone calls. Joe recently added a calling notification feature which makes the use of this app just that much cooler. When the AIR iPhone is minimized the calling notification window will appear when you receive a incoming call. Check out this new feature in action!
While Flash might not yet be available on the iPhone, news of new iPhone apps have been making its way into the Flash community. Mike Chamber has just released a handy way to reference the AS3 library with his new iPhone app calledActionScript 3 API Reference.
Watch out for the Falling Balls! As of late, Keith Peters has been getting himself into iPhone app development and one of his apps, Falling Balls, is hitting it “main stream”. Falling Balls is a free iPhone app with the concept being to avoid falling balls or you would be put to harsh death.
Imagine, a fully-functional iPhone on your desktop that enables users to make calls, take calls and capture voice messages on their computer. Well, now most of that can now be achieved. Joe Johnston has created the AIR iPhone, a desktop application created with Adobe AIR and Adobe Flex 3.
