P2P Video Calls on Android

Note: these AIR features are “working”, although they may not make it into the v1 product.

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.

“FlashTime” is obviously a working title, and 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 – suggestions welcome.

Flash/AIR on!

FlashTime – P2P Video Calls on Android

Note: these features are “working”, they may not make it into the v1 product.

This week I have been working on a couple of different mini-projects based on our upcoming release 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 Flash Platform, which is precisely the goal of the Open Screen Project.

I’m still working on FlashTime right now and so I don’t want to share the source code just yet. I hope I can finish it by next week and I’ll update this post and Twitter.

Flash/AIR on!

AIR2.5 StageWebView demo – OAuth Support

Some of you will have seen our recent series of e-seminars and blog posts about EVA, the Evangelist tool for day-to-day activities.  As you would expect, it’s a multi-screen application that uses all of our technologies where possible.

In terms of production, I am responsible for the mobile implementation and for that I created a number of features such as the GeoServices library, Twitter widget and radar widget – all of which I covered in previous blog posts.

One of the team gripes with the Twitter component is that it’s too hard to login to Twitter using the PIN based mechanism.  With that in mind I jumped at the chance to use StageWebView that is now part of the AIR 2.5 beta on Android devices.

Enjoy.
