Revisited: Captivate to the iPad

I while back, I posted a tutorial on how to convert a Captivate SWF file to an iPad app.  The tutorial involved some pretty intense command line hacking and a little bit of magic.  Nonetheless, I proved it could be done.  With an update to the HTML5 Converted for Captivate now posted to the Adobe Labs website, the process has gotten easier and has a couple additional options.  It’s still not “supported“, but I’m sure we’ll see a refined process … Continue reading

Slides from the October MN.swf Meeting

We had another great MN.swf meeting.  Adam Zucchi started things off talking about his mobile development experience and showed a lot of techniques he used to overcome some obstacles (showed lots of code too!).   Then Zara Gonzalez talked about her lessons-learned with four super cool mobile applications (also displayed her obsession with monsters…hehe).

However, there isn’t a a lot of documentation to support this feature.  If … Continue reading

Getting started with iPhone/iPad development

There’s a lot of excitement around mobile development.  When Adobe released Creative Suite 5 last year, they released their Packager for iPhone.  It’s a tool that converts Flash/Air applications to native iOS applications.  This tool was shipped with Flash CS5 and there are currently 1000′s of applications in the iTunes store that have been built with Flash. Don’t you love the irony? Over the next week or so, I will be posting a number of videos and tutorials on developing … Continue reading
