Android development with Flash Platform

First of all I’d like to say thank you to JUG Padova that give me opportunity to talk about Flash Platform in own Java User Group.
Saturday morning I got a talk about Android development with Flash Platform in a school in Padova.
There were 40/50 people more or less, students, Flash Platform devs and Java devs, so I’m glad about the final result.

I talked about my experience on working with Flash Platform on Android, suggested some tips & tricks to improve own applications made with AIR or web site for Flash Player on Android and finally I reported latest news from Flash on the Beach general session.

Adobe has just released Adobe AIR for Android so from last weekend you can download it and start to develop your own Flash Platform contents for Android devices.

You can download my presentation slides with some samples directly here, for now slides are in Italian but if someone is interesting in an English translation feel free to add a comment here.

Here you can watch the seminar:

  1. Dear mart,

    I’m a 20 year old flash developer who just started with Android. Altho my application is 99% done, I can’t make it screen independent. I have done everything I should, and looked everywhere but I can’t get the android library in my project. And by that I can’t get the DIP class. The thing I want to do is like

    import android.screen.DIP;

    but that aint possible in my Flashdevelop/Flash CS5 project. Do you have any idea if this is possible, and if so: how?

    I would be really thankful if you could help me.


      1. Hey I have solved the problem I think, this is what I do (in pseude code)

        stage.scaleMode = stagescalemode.noscale;
        stage.align = stagealign.topleft;

        var stageWidth:int = Capabilities.screenResolutionX;
        var DPI:int = Capabilities.screenDPI;

        var androidStageWidth:int = stagewidth / (DPI / 160);


  2. I’m not positive where you are getting your information, but good topic. I must spend a while studying much more or figuring out more. Thanks for excellent information I was searching for this info for my mission.
