Developing iOS Applications with Flex 4.5

Book Description

Ready to put your ActionScript 3 skills to work on iPhone and iPad apps? This hands-on book walks you through the process of creating an Adobe AIR application for iOS devices from start to finish, using the Flex 4.5 framework. Move quickly from a basic Hello World application to complex interactions with iOS APIs, and get complete code examples for working with device components—including the accelerometer, GPS, camera, gallery, and multitouch display. This is an ideal resource for Flex developers of all levels.

  • Read and write text files, and create and write to an SQLite database
  • Interact with the browser, place calls, and create emails and text messages
  • Load content into your app with StageWebView
  • Design for iOS with specific UI elements while maintaining one code version for all mobile devices
  • Publish your app to an Apple iOS installer file with Flash Builder
